Saturday night I was downtown, working for the F-B-I.
Sitting in a nest of bad men, whiskey 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 .45s 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 heading to the table with a tall walking big black cat.
When Charlie said, "I hope that you're able, boy,
'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at."
Well, then suddenly we heard the sirens and everybody started to run.
Jumping under 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, '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...
