"Sassy" as written by Cheryl Bentyne, Janis Siegel and Bill ...
Dig!
Why' really wanna flip your lid?
Try and give a listen to the singer
Hip or square, dig her wares
When money's stiff
She's thrivin' on a riff
She turns the major
Into minor cool
In her town she's reknown,
She's their crowl jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
(When she sings)
Her phrasin's jus' like a saxophone
(Misty eyes)

Workin' in the daytime, jammin'
Ev'ry night ('til the broad daylight)
Blowin' over changes that would
Give mos' gals a fright
People call her Sassy,
That's her attitude
Actin' like the devil but
When she sings her blues
Why' know what she's goin' through

She's hurtin', I'm certain,
She jus' can't say it
Wings, when she sings
Body, soul, she's in control

Dig!
Watch Sassy take another swig
Now she's gettin' evil
With her people
Cigarette, final set
Don' wanna miss her
Prelude to a Kiss
Ev'n the trumpet player's
Smilin' now
She's walkin' the line, scattin' in
Rhyme, she's a divine jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
(When she sings)
Her phrasin's jus' like a saxophone
(Misty eyes)

Workin' in the daytime, jammin'
Ev'ry night ('til the broad daylight)
Hangin' with the fellas
Can't quite quench her appetite
People call her Sassy
Coz she knows her mind
Someday she'll be famous and
Leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants t' do

She knows it, an' shows it,
The girl can't help it
Swings when she sings
Body, soul, she's in control

Workin' in the daytime, jammin'
Ev'ry night ('til the broad daylight)
Hangin' with the fellas
'til she's ready to ignite
People call her Sassy
Coz she knows her mind
Someday when she's famous,
She'll leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants t'do

(Repeat Bass Solo)

    General CommentUm….

    You won’t believe this but listen to this chick we’ve got. Cool or nerdy—it don’t matter—check out what she’s selling. Even on a shoestring budget, she cooks. Check out what she’s saying. She’s tireless and this goes on day and night. She has every intention of landing feet first—a tough little cookie. People don’t really call her Sassy but they could—she can be—often [does an excellent sneer …] Acts sometimes like she’s possessed by demons and then rolls into such heartfelt blues, she makes you cry and then says—but I’m okay—really—it’s nothing—when maybe it’s not. Tossed around like a ship in the ocean, she can and does put her foot down—cut this shit and right now! Knows what she wants to do … our crown jewel of jazz.
