Phillips

Got up in the morning in the drizzlin' rain
Walked into a cafe down in old south main
Lady was alone in a corner booth
Lady was a loner and a lookin' for truth
Lady, what's the matter are you lonely?
Really doesn't matter if you're homely
Someone gonna love you if you want it
Someone gonna hold you if you flaunt it
Lady what can I say to you?
Lady I wanna make love with you
Lady I will be near you now

What you gonna do with an irate lady?
What you gonna do when she gets uptight?
Where you gonna go to find a remedy?
How are you gonna lure her back tonight?
Bat eyes, cats' tails make a potion
Luminous green complexion lotion
Tell her put it on when she's got a notion
She will follow you over land and ocean

Lady what can I say to you?
Everything is turning out right
Lady what can I say to you?
Everything is turning out right
Lady what can I say to you?
Won't you please come back tonight?
Lady what can I say to you?
Won't you please come light my light again?

Mama there's tomorrow yeah
Tomorrow gonna bring no sorrow
Fill your heart with laughter
'Cause it really didn't even matter
Concentration daytime yeah, space out every night
Fill your life with love every minute and the world gonna treat you right

I say lady what can I say to you?
Lady I wanna make love with you
Lady I will be with you now
