MARY LOUISE WATSON

Live 17 Dec 1971 version


Well I got a girlfriend
Mary Lou Watson is her name
Yeah I said I got a girlfriend
Mary Lou Watson is her name
Now she'll tell you that she don't have a lover
But I know that she do just the same

And she's a sweet young thing
Her best friends they all call her Lulu
And she's a sweet young thing
Her best friends they call her Lulu
She might tell you that she don't
But I know that she do, oh yeah

[Long instrumental]

Mr. Dave Sancious!

[Long instrumental]

Yeah she's a sweet young thing
Look like an angel that has set her heart on fire, yeah I think
She's a sweet young thing
She's dressed just like an angel with her heart on fire, oh yeah
You might think she's a butterfly
Boy but that woman ain't no doubt
She's a black widow spider

Oh you know, yeah I got a girlfriend
Mary Louise is her name
Oh buddy I got a girlfriend
Oh sweet Louise, that's her name
She can tell you that she don't love you
But she send you ???
