I'm an evil gal don't you bother with me, no
I said I'm an evil gal don't you mess around with me,
Mmhmm
Well I'll empty your pockets and fill you with misery,
Yes I will!
If you tell me good mornin'
I'm gon' tell you that's a lie
If you say hello baby I'ma give you the evil eye
I'ma evil gal don't you mess around with me, Mmhmm
I'm gonna empty your pockets and fill you with misery,
Yes I will
I want caviar for breakfast, champagne every night,
I want a midnight snack for every man that I invite
I'm an evil gal don't you mess around with me, no
So goodbye baby I'm gonna set you free
Whoaaa if you wanna be happy honey don't you mess
Around with me
I said if you wanna be happy don't you mess around with
Me, no
Cause I'll empty your pockets and fill you with misery
Yeah- yeah oh I'm evil

-Harmonica-

Oh if you wanna be happy don't you hang out with me, no
More
I said if you wanna be happy, honey, don't you hang out
With me
You'd better not
Cause I'll empty your pockets and I'll set you free
And I'm so proud- that's how I am!
