Tom Jones – Black Betty lyrics

Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
She's from birmingham (bam-ba-lam)
Way down in alabam' (bam-ba-lam)
Well, she's shakin' that thing (bam-ba-lam)
Boy, she makes me sing (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty bam-ba-lam

She really gets me high (bam-ba-lam)
You know that's no lie (bam-ba-lam)
She's so rock steady (bam-ba-lam)
And she's always ready (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)

Oh, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Oh, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Black betty had a child (bam-ba-lam)
And she swears it's mine (bam-ba-lam)
She must be outta mind (bam-ba-lam)
She must think I'm blind (bam-ba-lam)
Oh, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Oh, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Oh, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Oh, black betty (bam-ba-lam)

Monday she got me arrested.
On tuesday up in chain.
On wednesday my trial was tested.
Thursday she posted my bail.
Friday we went walking.
Saturday I out my door.
On sunday we was talking,
Back on monday she pawned all my cloths.

Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
She's from birmingham (bam-ba-lam)
Way down in alabam' (bam-ba-lam)
Well, she's shakin' that thing (bam-ba-lam)
Boy, she makes me sing (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty)bam-ba-lam)

She really gets me high (bam-ba-lam)
You know that's no lie (bam-ba-lam)
She's so rock steady (bam-ba-lam)
And she's always ready (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, black betty (bam-ba-lam)
