DOWNTOWN SUZIE (aka SWEET LUCY)

(B. Wyman)

Got the Monday mornin' bill (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Monday wasn't really real (yeah, yeah)
Oh, lying on a naked bed (yep, yep, yeah)
With an Alka Seltzer head (yeah, yeah)

Dippidy dog doo... all right!

Oh, Lucy looked sweet just a-strollin' down Newport Street
Talkin' 'bout Lu, what ya gon' do
And I feel so bad, have you ever been had
I'll dry out sweet Lucy

Took an early morning shower (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Well I wasted 'bout half an hour (yeah, yeah)
I heard the ringing of a bell (yeah, yeah, yeah)
It's Lucy with the cleaning towel (yeah, yeah)
Oh, I'm feelin' like the Sunday Times (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Soaked in Californian wine (yeah, yeah)
Oh Lucy kicked me in the hole (yep, yep, yeah)
A tenner's worth of achin' balls (Ooh-wooh)
Oh Lucy! Yep! Ohhhh... humbly humbly hubby...

Oh Lucy looked sweet just a-strollin' down Newport Street (yeah that true!)
Talkin bout Lu, what ya gonna do
Yeah I feel so bad
Have you ever been had
Got a dose from now sweet lucy

Oh Lucy looked sweet just a-strollin' down Newport Street
Talkin bout Lu (who?) what ya gonna do?
Oh and I feeling so bad
Have you ever been had?
Oh by thou sweet Lucy
