Black Betty
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Black Betty had a child, bam-ba-lam
The damn thing gone wild, bam-ba-lam
She said "I'm worryin' outta mind", bam-ba-lam
The damn thing gone blind, bam-ba-lam
I said oh, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam

Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
She really gets me high, bam-ba-lam
You know that's no lie, bam-ba-lam
She's so rock steady, bam-ba-lam
And she's always ready, bam-ba-lam
A-whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam

Get it

Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
She's from Birmingham, bam-ba-lam
Way down in Alabam', bam-ba-lam
Well, she's shaking that thing, bam-ba-lam
Boy, she makes me sing, bam-ba-lam
A-whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam, yeah
