Mean Woman With Green Eyes    (1950)

Green eyes

It takes a mean woman with the green eyes
To make me want to catch that train
It takes a mean woman with the green eyes
To make me want to change her name

I think my baby's jealous
She says that I'm her man
She done and blowed her lid but didn't hurt the can
She's a mean woman with the green eyes
Me, oh me, what a gal!

It takes a mean woman with the green eyes
To make you want to navigate
It takes a mean woman with the green eyes
To start my blood to circulate

My baby had no doctor
She had no doctor's nurse
She'll keep a treatin' daddy till he rides that big, black hearse
Cause she's a mean woman with the green eyes
By-jiminy, what a gal!

Now if I see her running round with other Jacks and Joes
I'm gonna get my suitcase down and then I'll pack my clothes
And leave that mean woman with the green eyes
Gosh, golly, bum, what a gal!
