Sylvie
Sylvie
I'm so hot'n dry
Sylvie
Sylvie
Can't you hear,
Can't you hear me crying?
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Bring me little water out
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Every little once in a while
Sylvie says she loves me
But I believe she lies
She hasn't been to see me
Since the last day in july
Sylvie
Sylvie
I'm so hot'n dry
Sylvie
Sylvie
Can't you hear
Can't you hear me crying
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Bring me little water out
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Every little once in a while
She brought me a little coffee
She brought me a little tea
Well, she brought me nearly every damned thing
But she didn't bring the jailhouse key
Sylvie
Sylvie
I'm so hot'n dry
Sylvie
Sylvie
Little drink of water
Wouldn't statisfy me
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Bring me little water out
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Every little once in a while
Took a look ayonder
What is that I see?
Well I thought it was little Sylvie
Hopprunning there for me
Sylvie
Sylvie
I'm so hot and dry
Sylvie
Sylvie
Can't you hear
Can't you hear me crying?
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Bring me little water out
Bring me little water, Sylvie
Every little once in a while
Every little once in a while
Every
Little once
In a while
Sylvie
Sylvie
