I've got a woman
Streamline from her feet
To her head
I've got a woman
Streamline from her feet
To her head
If she should ever quit me
She might as well's be dead

Ev'rytime that woman smiles
She shows the diamonds in her teeth
Ev'rytime that woman smiles
She shows the diamonds in her teeth
She wears fine clothes
And patent leather shoes on her feet

Men's all crazy 'bout her
She make them whine and cry
Men's all crazy 'bout her
She make them whine and cry
She's a river hip, mama
And the all wanna be Baptised

'Blow it, boy'

(sax & instrumental)

'I'd wanna be Baptised, too'

Now, listen people
The half ain't been told
Now, listen people
The half ain't been told
She can wup it to a jelly
I mean, a good jellyroll.

~
