Intro: harmonica & instrumental (23 bars)

Aah, I'm itchy
And I don't no where to scratch
Come here, baby
Scratch my back
I know you can do it
So baby, get to it

Aah, you're workin' wit' it now

Ya got me feelin' so good

A li'l bit to the center now, baby


This little girl sho' knows how to scratch!

Now you're doin' a chicken scratch

(instrumental & guitar)

Aah, it's lookin' good, baby!

Just go 'head an scratch it!

That's what I'm talkin' about

(harmonica - instrumental to end)
