  Long Cool Woman In a Black Dress (Clarke / Cook / Greenaway)
Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sitting in a nest of bad men
Whisky bottles piling high

Bootlegging boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the DA man
When I heard this woman singing a song

A pair of 45's 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
'Cos that long cool woman had it all

I saw her headin' to the table
Well a tall walking 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 suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A jumping out of doors and tables
Well I heard somebody shooting a gun

Well the DA was pumping my left hand
And then she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'Cos you're gonna be spared
Well I've gotta be forgiven
If I wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Well, with just one look I was a bad mess
'Cos that long cool woman had it all

Had it all


Cable Car (Sylvester)
Cable car, flying high
Passing stars or wondering why
Did she go or did she die
I don't know

Mountainside, not so green
Snow is more than ever seen
Will she come back in a dream
I don't know

Thoughts of her reminding me
of a time I couldn't see
anything but you and me together

Colored cloud, on you go
to a land you may not know
If you see her
tell her I'm so alone

verse 4
