LONG TALL SALLY


Gonna tell Aunt Mary bout Uncle John
He claims he hasn't missed her but he's havin a lot of fun
Oh baby, yes, baby, wooo baby ,havin' me some fun tonight, yeah

Well Long Tall Sally she's built for speed, she's got
Everything that Uncle John need
Oh baby, yes baby, woooo baby,
Havin me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with a ball headed Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin and he ducked back in the alley
Oh baby, yes baby, woooo baby, havin me some fun tonight

(Instrumental)

Well Long Tall Sally she's built for speed, she's got
Everything that Uncle John need
Oh baby, yes baby, woooo baby, havin me some fun tonight, yeah

Well, I saw Uncle John with a ball headed Sally
He saw Aunt Mary comin and he ducked back in the alley
Oh baby, yes, baby, wooo baby havin me some fun tonight, yeah

We're gonna have some fun tonight
Gonna have some fun tonight, wooo
Have some fun tonight
Everything's alright
Have some fun, have me some fun tonight
