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
'Cause that long, cool woman had it all

I saw her headed towards the table,
Like 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"

Then suddenly we heard the sirens,
And everybody started to run
A-jumping out of doors and tables
When I heard somebody shooting a gun

Well the DA was pumping my left hand
And she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'Cause you're gonna be spared

Well I've gotta 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
'Cause that long, cool woman had it all.
Had it all ...
Had it all ...
Had it all ...
Had it all ...
