long cool woman (in a black dress) lyrics – various artists

sat*rday night i was downtown
workin’ for the f.b.i.
sittin’ in a nest of bad men
whiskey bottles pilin’ high
a bootleggin’ boozer on the west side
full o’ people who were doin’ wrong
a just about to call the da-man
when i heard this woman singin’ a song

a pair o’ 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
’cause that long cool woman had it all

i saw her head up to the table
well a tall walkin’ big black cat
a charlie said, “i hope that you’re able boy”
’cause i’m tellin’ you she knows where it’s at
well suddenly we heard the sirens
and everybody started to run
jumpin’ outta doors and tables
well i heard someone shootin’ a gun

well the da was pumpin’ my left hand
and she was a-holdin’ my right
well i told don’t be scared ’cause y’gonna be spared
well i gotta be forgivin’, if i wanna spend my livin’ with

a long cool woman in a black dress
just a 5 – 9 beautiful tall
with just one look i was a bad mess
’cause that long cool woman had it all

had it all, had it all, had it all
had it all, had it all, had it all
