lyrics

If I was whiskey, and you were a cup
I'd dive to the bottom and I'd never come up
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, or do I have to hesitate?

Mama, mama, mama, look at sis
She's out on the levee doing the double twist
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, or do I have to hesitate?

I knew a lady, she was tall
She made me think about my parasol
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, or do I have to hesitate?

She said, "touch my bonnet, touch my shawl,
But do not touch my waterfall"
How long do I have to wait?

Come in here, you dirty little sow
You try to be a bad girl, you don't know how!
How long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, or do I have to hesitate?
