Koko Taylor – Ernestine lyrics

Ernestine, you'd better leave my man alone, ernestine, because of you I can't go on,
I told you for the last time,
To find you A man of you own.

Ernestine, what you doing, you know it ain't right,
Ernestine, when you play, it make me wanna fight,
Girl you playin with danger,
And girl, this might take, it might.

Riff/ I warned yo/you once
Riff/ girl without A/ doubt
Riff/ 2 strikes yo/you lose
Riff/ third strike you'/Re out
Riff/ like A base/Ball game
Riff/ you dancin wi/Th A slugger
Riff/ I hit A grand/ slam,
Cause I'm A bad mmam duck

Ernestine, you'd better leave my man alone
I told you for the last time,
To find you A man of your own.

Solo (Like vs)

Ernestine, you playin with fire, you know you'll burn
Ernestine, I know, where you come from
You refuse to listen,
But you ain't in the right school to learn.


Ernestine, you'd better leave my man alone,
I told you for the last time, to find/ you A man of you own.
