And I ain't no doctor and I ain't no nurse
Ain't gonna love you babe and nothin' could be worse
Ain't got no aristocrat a hangin' in my tree
So tell me little momma why you messin' with me

[Chorus:]
Looks like a lo-o-o-on-ng longshot baby
Lookin' like a lo-o-o-n-ngshot baby to me

I don't walk with the president I don't mess with the prime
Ain't got no big shots baby workin' for me overtime
I can see you're sophisticated a with your goody two shoes
So tell me are you're slummin' baby I got nothin' to lose

[Chorus]

An I ain't no sinner and I ain't no saint.
Ain't no hipocrit baby 'cept most every day
I ain't got no religion a-clouding up my brain
So tell me little mama, why you jumpin' my claim

[Chorus 2x]
