Lyrics SATURDAY NIGHT
I WAS DOWNTOWN
WORKING FOR THE F.B.I.
SITTING IN A NEST
OF BADMEN,
WHISKEY BOTTLES
PILING HIGH.
BOOTLEGGING BOOZER
ON THE WEST SIDE
FULL OF PEOPLE
WHO ARE DOING WRONG.
JUST ABOUT TO CALL UP
THE D.A. MAN
WHEN I HEARD
THIS WOMAN
SINGING A SONG.
A PAIR OF FORTY FIVES
MADE ME OPEN MY EYES,
MY TEMPRATURE STARTED
TO RISE.

SHE WAS A
LONG COOL WOMAN
IN A BLACK DRESS,
JUST A FIVE NINE
BEAUTIFUL TALL.
WITH JUST ONE LOOK
I WAS A BAD MESS
BECAUSE THAT
LONG COOL WOMAN
HAD IT ALL.

I SAW HER HEAD UP
TO THE TABLE,
WELL,
A TALL WALKING
BLACK CAT.
WHEN CHARLIE SAID,
I HOPE
THAT YOU'RE ABLE.
BOY,
I'M TELLING YOU
SHE KNOWS
WHERE IT'S AT.
SUDDENLY WE HEARD
THE SIRENS,
AND EVERYBODY
STARTED TO RUN.
JUMPING OUT
OF DOORS
AND TABLES
WHEN I HEARD SOMEBODY
SHOOTING A GUN.

WELL,
THE D.A.
WAS PUMPING
MY LEFT HAND
AND SHE WAS,
WAS A-HOLDING
MY RIGHT,
WELL,
I TOLD HER
DON'T GET SCARED
BECAUSE YOU'RE GONNA
BE SPARED.
WELL,
I'M GONNA BE FORGIVEN
BECAUSE I WANT TO
SPEND MY LIVING
WITH A:

LONG COOL WOMAN
IN A BLACK DRESS.
JUST A FIVE NINE
BEAUTIFUL TALL.
WITH JUST ONE LOOK
I WAS A BAD MESS
BECAUSE THAT
LONG COOL WOMAN
HAD IT ALL.

GET IT ON.
GET IT ON,
GET IT ON,
GET IT ON,
GET IT ON.
GET IT ON!
