(Instrumental & harp intro)

I know I had a wondeful time last night
At least so they tell me I did
Know I had a wonderful time last night
So high, I couldn't hardly keep it hid
Yes, I got somethin' to tell you, baby you can't do
You can't love me, an some other man, too
'Cause I know I had a wonderful time last night
At least so they tell me I did

I know I had a wonderful time last night
At least so they tell me I did
Know I shouted, 'Hallelujah' last night
I was so high I couldn't keep it hid
I'm going to buy me a dog, gonna wire his nose
How do you kill a man about my jelly roll?
'Cause I know I had a wonderful time last night
At least so they tell me I did

'Alright, Lacey'

(harmonica and instrumental)

(background female) 'hallelujah'
(background male) 'have some'

'That's what I'm talkin' 'bout, Lacey'

'Hey now, hey now'

'Do it again, Lacey, do it again'

'Oh man, I know I shouted, 'hallelujah' last night'

I know you had a wonderful time last night
Baby, at least so they tell me you did
I know you had a wonderful time last night
An tell me, you just couldn't keep it hid
Says, there was two old maids a-layin' in the bed
A-one turned over then other one, says;
'I know we had a wonderful time last night
At least so they tell me we did'

I know ya had a wonderful time last night
At least so they tell me you did
Know you shouted, 'Hallelujah', last night
An you just couldn't hardly keep it hid
I got a big fat mama, little skinny mama, too
I don't tell my big fat mama
What my skinny mama can do
I know you had a wonderful time last night
At least so they tell me you did.
