Black Dog

Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.
Oh, oh, child, way you shake that thing, gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting.
Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way, watch your honey drip, can’t keep away.

[Chorus:]
Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah. Ah yeah, ah yeah, ah, ah, ah.
I gotta roll, can’t stand still, got a flaming heart, can’t get my fill
Eyes that shine burning red, dreams of you all through my head.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby, tell me that you’ll do me now
Hey, baby, oh, baby, pretty baby, do me like you do me now
Didn’t take too long ‘fore I found out, what people mean by down and out.
Spent my money, took my car, started telling her friends she’s gonna be a star.
I don’t know but I been told, a big-legged woman ain’t got no soul.

[Chorus]

All I ask for when I pray, steady rollin’ woman gonna come my way.
Need a woman gonna hold my hand, won’t tell me no lies, make me a happy man.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
