DETROIT MEDLEY


Devil with a blue dress, blue dress, blue dress
Devil with a blue dress on
Devil with a blue dress, blue dress, blue dress
Devil with a blue dress on
Fee, fee, fi, fi, fo, fo, fum
Look at Molly now, here she comes
Wearin' her wig hat and shades to match
She's got high-heel shoes and an alligator hat
Wearin' her pearls and her diamond rings
She's got bracelets on her fingers, now, and everything
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Wearin' her perfume, Channel # 5
Got to be the finest looking woman alive
She looks so pretty every time she walks by
The boys are too nervous even to say "Hi"
Not too skinny, she's not too fat
She's a real humdinger and I like it like that
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on

("Good Golly Miss Molly" interlude:)
Good golly, Miss Molly, you sure like to ball
Good golly, Miss Molly, you sure like to ball
While you're rockin' and rollin'
Can't you hear your mama call
From the early, early mornin' 'til the early, early nights
See Miss Molly rockin' at the House of Blue Lights
Good golly, Miss Molly, you sure like to ball
While you're rockin' and rollin'
Can't you hear your mama call
Hey!
Oh see, see see rider
Oh see, what you have done now
Oh see, see see rider
I said see, what you have done now
Ahh You made me love you
now, now, now your man has gone

Oh, I'm going with my baby, and I won't be back till fall yeah
Oh, I'm going with my baby, and I won't be back till fall yeah
And if I find me a new girl, I won't be back at all

Ah Jenny Jenny Jenny, wont you come along with me
Jenny Jenny Jenny, wont you come along with me
I worry bout you baby (?spendin nights in misery?)

Spinnin', spinnin' spinnin' spinnin' like a spinnin' top
Spinnin', spinnin' spinnin' spinnin' like a spinnin' top
Come along baby (?...feelin' love?)

Yeah see, see see rider
Oh see, what you have done now
Oh see, see see rider
Ah come on see, what you have done now
Ahh You made me love you
now, now, now, now your man has gone
Ah Jenny Jenny Jenny, wont you come along with me
Jenny Jenny Jenny, wont you come along with me
Come along girl (??)
Spin spin spinnin like a spinnin top
Spin spin spinnin like a spinnin top
