(clarke / cook / greenaway)
Saturday night i was downtown
Working for the fbi
Sitting in a nest of bad men
Whisky bottles piling high

Bootlegging boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the da man
When i heard this woman singing a song

A pair of 45's made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9, beautiful tall
With just one look i was a bad mess
'cos that long cool woman had it all

I saw her headin' to the table
Well a tall walking big black cat
When charlie said i hope that you're able boy
Well i'm telling you she knows where it's at
Well suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A jumping out of doors and tables
Well i heard somebody shooting a gun

Well the da was pumping my left hand
And then she was a-holding my right
Well i told her don't get scared
'cos you're gonna be spared
Well i've gotta be forgiven
If i wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Well, with just one look i was a bad mess
'cos that long cool woman had it all

Had it all

    el sabado a la noche yo estaba en el centro trabajando para el fbi sentado en un nido de hombres malos, las botellas de whisky amontonandose, una cantina de contrabandeo sobre el lado oeste, justo cuando estaba por llamar al hombre de la D.A escuche a esta mujer cantando una cancion, con 140 de busto me hizo abrir los ojos, mi temperatura empezo a elevarse, era una mujer alta indiferente vestida de negro, una hermosura de 1 metro 80 de alto, tan solo con una mirada yo ya estaba en un lio. porque esa mujer alta indiferente tenia de todo, la vi avanzando hacia la mesa, un gran felino alto y negro caminando cuando carlos dijo bien espero que estes dispuesto muchacho porque te cuendo que ella sabe donde se mete. Bien de repente oimos las sirenas y todos empezaron a correr, un revuelo de mesas y sillas, escuche a alguien disparando un arma, bien el hombre de la D.A me levanto la mano izquierda, y entonces ella sostenia la derecha, le dije, bien, no tengas miedo porque van a perdonarte, bien tienen que perdonarme si quiero pasar mi vida con una mujer alta indiferente vestida de negro, una hermosura de 1 metro 80 de alto, bien, con una sola mirada yo estaba en un lio porque esa mujer alta indiferente tenia de todo
