THE HOLLIES – LONG COOL WOMAN IN A BLACK DRESS LYRICS

THE HOLLIES – LONG COOL WOMAN IN A BLACK DRESS LYRICS sung by artist The Hollies from album Miscellaneous

Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sittin’ in a nest of bad men
Whiskey bottles piling high

Bootleggin’ boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doin’ wrong
Just about to call up the DA man
When I heard this woman singin’ a song

A pair of [incomprehensible] made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise

She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5-9 beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
‘Cause that long cool woman had it all

I saw her headin’ to the table
Well a tall walkin’ big black cat
When Charlie said, ‽I hope that you’re able, boy”
Well, I’m telling you she knows where it’s at

Well then suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
Jumpin’ under doors and tables
Well, I heard somebody shootin’ a gun

Well, the DA was pumping my left hand
And she was holding my right
Well, I told her, “Don’t get scared
‘Cause you’re gonna be spared”

Well, I’m gonna be forgiven
If I wanna spend my living

With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5-9 beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
‘Cause that long cool woman had it all

Had it all, had it all, had it all
Had it all, had it all, had it all
