agent double-o soul lyrics – edwin starr

double-o-soul!
i dig rock and roll music
i can do the twine and the jerk
i wear strictly continental suits
and high collared shirts.
i’ve got a reputation of bein
gentle but bold.
and that’s why they call me
agent double-o-soul baby!
agent double-o-soul.
they call me double-o-soul baby
i’m agent double-o-soul.

i don’t carry no pistol
i don’t wear a false mustache
and you’ll never see me carrying
around a little black bag.
my real names no secret
but from me it will never be told.
i’m just known as agent double-o-soul baby!
agent double-o-soul.
they call me double-o-soul baby
i’m agent double-o-soul.

there once was a fella
who was down on rock and roll.
he couldnt get himself together
he didn’t have no kind of soul.
the office put me on his case
and i tracked him down right away.
now he’s a deejay on a radio show
a station that everybody knows.
call me double-o-soul
call me double-o-soul

double-o-soul
double-o-soul
double-o-soul
double-o-soul

at my job i work real hard
i’m on the go
rain, sleet, or snow.
i’m agent double-o-soul baby!
i’m agent double-o-soul
they call me double-o-soul baby.
