How do you make a lady (x3)
I'll show you one more time
How do you make a lady (x3)
I'll show you one more time

Hey hey baby maybe you can show me your lady
And we can make a lady tonight
Hey hey baby maybe you can show me your lady
And we can make a lady tonight

Her name is Barbara (Barbara) Jackson (Jackson)
That is her name
Her name is Barbara Jackson
How do you make a lady?
Barbara (Barbara) Jackson (Jackson) that is her name
Her name is Barbara Jackson
How do you make a lady?

Barbara Jackson is my name and I don't play no game
If that's all the same, but I'll still take the train
My name is Barbara Jackson
And that's what you should call me
My name is Barbara Jackson
But you don't ever call me
You don't ever call me

We're making ladies (x3)
Construct a lady all night
We're making ladies (x3)
Construct a lady all night

I'm making her from faberge
I'm making her with fabric
I'll put her in some negligee
I'll conjure her with magic

I'll clean up all her accidents
And paint her with mascara
We'll get upon our fancy boats
And ride the Riviera

How do you make a lady (x3)
I'll show you one more time
How do you make a lady (x3)
I'll show you one more time

Hey hey baby maybe you can show me your lady
And we can make a lady tonight
Hey hey baby maybe you can show me your lady
And we can make a lady tonight

Her name is Cathy (Cathy) Curtis (Curtis)
That is her name
Her name is Cathy Curtis
How do you make a lady?
Her name is Cathy (Cathy) Curtis (Curtis) that is her name
Her name is Cathy Curtis
How do you make a lady

My name is Cathy Curtis and I'm so happy to be here
I'm in my fourth year of studying taxidermy
And I love hunting deer
My name is Cathy Curtis and I'm so glad you get to know me
I know where the girl's room is you don't need to show me
You don't need to show me
You don't need to show me

We're making ladies (x3)
Construct a lady all night
We're making ladies (x3)
Construct a lady all night

You made me out of faberge
You made me out of fabric
You put me in a negligee
You conjure me with magic

You clean up all my accidents
You paint with mascara
You put me in a fancy boat
We'll ride the Riviera

    General CommentThis song can be found on disc 2 of the the deluxe version of "Ta Dah," which could explain why its first comment was on 7.3.07-- it was apparently not widely released, especially in the United States. xxDuckie is right, it's a very fun song. The Cathy Curtis lady is funny as hell. This song is a prime example of the influence of the B-52s on the Scissor Sisters, which is probably what drew me to the S.S. in the first place.
