Lyrics IN OLD SAVANNAH,
I SAID SAVANNAH,
THE WEATHER THERE
IS NICE AND WARM!
THE CLIMATES
OF A SOUTHERN BRAND,
BUT HERE'S WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND:
THEY GOT A GAL THERE,
A PRETTY GAL THERE,
WHO'S COLDER
THAN AN ARCTIC STORM,
GOT A HEART JUST LIKE A STONE,
EVEN ICE MEN LEAVE HER ALONE!

THEY CALL HER
HARD HEARTED HANNAH,
THE VAMP OF SAVANNAH,
THE MEANEST GAL IN TOWN.
LEATHER IS TOUGH,
BUT HANNAH'S HEART IS TOUGHER,
SHE'S A GAL
WHO LOVES TO SEE MEN SUFFER!
TO TEASE 'EM,
AND THRILL 'EM,
TO TORTURE AND KILL 'EM,
IS HER DELIGHT, THEY SAY,
I SAW HER AT THE SEASHORE
WITH A GREAT BIG PAN,
THERE WAS HANNAH POURING WATER
ON A DROWNDING MAN!
SHE'S HARD HEARTED HANNAH,
THE VAMP OF SAVANNAH, GA!

THEY CALL HER
HARD HEARTED HANNAH,
THE VAMP OF SAVANNAH,
THE MEANEST GAL IN TOWN
TALK OF YOUR COLD,
REFRIGERATIN' MAMAS,
BROTHER,
SHE'S A POLAR BEAR'S PAJAMAS!
TO TEASE 'EM,
AND THRILL 'EM,
TO TORTURE AND KILL 'EM,
IS HER DELIGHT, THEY SAY,
AN EVENING SPENT WITH HANNAH
SITTIN' ON YOUR KNEES,
IS LIKE TRAVELIN' THROUGH ALASKA
IN YOUR BVDS.
SHE'S HARD HEARTED HANNAH,
THE VAMP OF SAVANNAH, GA!

CAN YOU IMAGINE A WOMAN
AS COLD AS HANNAH?
SHE'S GOT THE RIGHT NAME,
THE VAMP OF SAVANNAH.
ANY TIME A WOMAN
CAN TAKE A GREAT BIG PAN
AND START POURING WATER
ON A DROWNIN' MAN.
SHE'S HARD HEARTED HANNAH
THE VAMP OF SAVANNAH GA.

OHH, SHE'S SWEET AS SOUR MILK!
