38 Special – Little Sheba lyrics

I took a business trip
Down to Florida
I got a room at a Holiday Inn
There was an earthquake in California
Must be the reason why this place was shakin? Br> Down in the barroom it was
Loaded with servicemen
Elbow to elbow
I said: "Scuze me blood,
Just what is shakin? "
He say, "Girls on the dance floor
Wrestling in jello"
And the joint was jammin? Br> From the pumpin? By the D. J.
They were rappin? And clappin?
When up steps Little Sheba


Little Sheba she抯 as tough as you find
She抯 the local color burnin? Like a Florida Pine
They raise the girls on gator down here
Doncha know
Little sheba she抯 the favorite one
Everybody抯 got money on her 9 to 1
They raise the girls on gator down here
Doncha know

Into the ring steps her worthy opponent
A nasty little vixen with a New York vibe
Before Little Sheba could say,
"Welcome to Dixie"
She抎 kick all her buttons
And punched out her headlights
And the crowd was reelin?
They were chomping and chanting
They can抰 believe what they抮e seein? Br> Didn抰 look good for Little Sheba


Now to make a long story
Just a little bit longer
Little Sheba was humbled on that humid night
She returned from emergency
With a fistfull of fractures
Our fabled femme fatale
Spoilin? For another fight
