Scarlet Lady

This song is by Lucifer and appears on the album As We Are (1975).

Last night, about 11 o'clock
Mayor Davis walked into this room
When he left I was fifty dollars richer
Hit a bottle of French perfume

Lots of ladies 'round here liked to see me in dare
But they'll never see me there
'Cause there ain't no judge in the county
Hasn't send him a velvet chair

Scarlet lady waits for you in my room just down the hall
Mirror on the ceiling, who's the fairest one of all
Lyin' on my big bedspread I've learned my lesson well
Scarlet lady never give away what you can sell

I get them when they're just sixteen
I get them when they're sixty-five
They come in, feeling full of the devil
And leave about half alive

There's a new grand piano in the living room
And closets full of fancy clothes
You may not think it's much of a life
But that's the one I chose

Scarlet lady waits for you in my room just down the hall
Mirror on the ceiling, who's the fairest one of all
Lyin' on my big bedspread I've learned my lesson well
Scarlet lady never give away what you can sell

It's half past ten on the Saturday night
Busy like the one before
But all is half time for the governor
When he comes through my backdoor

So don't you worry 'bout the scarlet woman
When you see her growin' old
My diary is just a little black book
I turn it into gold

Scarlet lady waits for you in my room just down the hall
Mirror on the ceiling, who's the fairest one of all
Lyin' on my big bedspread I've learned my lesson well
Scarlet lady never give away what you can sell

Scarlet lady waits for you in my room just down the hall
Mirror on the ceiling, who's the fairest one of all
Lyin' on my big bedspread I've learned my lesson well
Scarlet lady never give away what you can sell

Scarlet lady waits for you in my room just down the hall
Mirror on the ceiling, who's the fairest one of all
Lyin' on my big bedspread I've learned my lesson well
Scarlet lady never give away what you can sell
