"Mississippi Queen" as written by David Rea, Felix Pappalardi, Laurence Laing and Leslie A. Weinstein....
Mississippi Queen - you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen - she taught me everything

Way down around Vicksburg around Lousisiana way
There's a cajun lady called the Mississippi Queen
You know she was a dancer, she moved better on wine
While the rest of those dudes where gettin' their kicks
Buddy, beg your pardon, I was gettin mine

Mississippi Queen - if you know what I mean
Mississippi Queen - she taught me everything

This lady she asked me if I would be her man
You know that I told her I'd do what I can
To keep her lookin pretty, buy her dresses that shine
While the the rest of them dudes was makin their bread
Buddy beg your pardon I was losing mine

You know she was a dancer, she moved better on wine
While the rest of those dudes where gettin there kicks
Brother beg your pardon I was gettin mine

Ohhhhh Mississippi Queen
Look out, Helter Skelter!
Wouah ha ha ha

"Okay, put it up, let's see what we got"
"Man, that one note is a fucking bitch..."
