From the recording BLACK MARIAH
Well you said you won't gonna leave me no more,
Well you said you're gonna stick around this time,
That's why I see the closin' door,
And your big ugly face on the other side,
And it gonna take a real big woman, bring you back inside.
If heaven was a Black Mariah, well you boy, you be waitin' on the road,
I tell yah, good God Almighty, good God Almighty,
that a' you just shot your load,
Don't come knockin' on my back door no more, oh, no, no.
My heart is heavy as a stone.
You're the devil in my red shoes, you're the tailor in my seams,
Good God I had some black blues, but you're the lover in my dreams,
Well gonna take a real, real big woman, oh yeah, to keep you clean, oh.
If heaven was a Black Mariah, you boy, you be waitin' on the road,
I tell yah, good God Almighty, that you just shot your load,
Don't come knockin' on my back door no more,
My heart is as heavy as a stone.
I'm your Black Mariah, you're my patent place,
You're a sizzlin' pink pariah, faster than a snake,
You old grizzly adams, yeah, n' all his nasty friends,
Why don't yah keep this cookie crumblin, why you give me the bends.
Won't you sock it to me mister guitar man, ahh yeah baby,
Oh give it to me while you can, oh yeah, play the damn thing there boy,
Give 'em the blues, give it to 'em hard,
Give 'em every last thing you got, gotta keep 'em hot, ooh yeah, big ole woman!
