Lyrics

Saturday night I was downtown Working for the FBI Sitting in a nest of bad men Whisky bottles piling high Bootlegging boozer on the west side Full of people who are doing wrong Just about to call up the DA man When I heard this woman singing a song A pair of 45's made me open my eyes My temperature started to rise She was a long cool woman in a black dress Just a 5-9 beautiful tall With just one look I was a bad mess 'Cos that long cool woman had it all I saw her heading to the table Well a tall walking big black cat When Charlie said I hope that you're able boy Well I'm telling you she knows where it's at Well then suddenly we heard a siren And everybody started to run Jumping out of doors and tables Well I heard somebody shooting a gun Well the DA was pumping my left hand And she was holding my right Well I told her don't get scared 'Cos you're gonna be spared Well I'm gonna be forgiven If I wanna spend my living With a long cool woman in a black dress Just a 5-9 beautiful tall With just one look I was a bad mess 'Cos that long cool woman had it all
