MEAN WOMAN BLUES

Original Elvis Presley version


I got a woman mean as she can be
I got a woman mean as she can be
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me

A black cat up and died of fright
'Cause she crossed his path last night
I got a woman mean as she can be
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me

Kiss so hard, she bruise my lips
Hurts so good, my heart just flips
I got a woman mean as she can be
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me

The strangest gal I ever had
Never happy unless she's mad
I got a woman mean as she can be
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me
Yeah
Ooh ohh
Yeah
Oohhh

She makes love without a smile
Ooh hot dog that drives me wild
I got a woman mean as she can be
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me
Sometimes I think she's almost mean as me
