Ry Cooder – I Can Tell By The Way You Smell lyrics

look, here baby what's, going on Step?
over in the light Oh
no, Look! here Your.

hair is all wrecked you're, full of sweat Your
underskirt is wringing wet You
come in here walking just like a goose It
looks like somebody just tranked you to loose You've
been doing something You've
been doing something wrong You've
been doing something You've
been doing something wrong I
can tell by the way you smell And

there's grandma and grandpa out on the porches Must
be gettin' about ninety years Ain't
too old God, almighty just, keep shifting them gears Well
you, ain't too old said, you ain't too old Ain't
too old doing, the boogie you, ain't too old I
can tell by the way they smell Well

it's, a-run here mama Just! look at little sis' Got
her hand in her poodle way, up to her wrist She's
doing something wrong she's, doing something wrong She's
doing something wrong God, knows she's doing it I
can tell by the way she smell Go

on and change your clothes
