Whoa, Mama was a rock and roll singer yeah
Papa used to write all her songs
Well you could hear their music playing
On the jukebox all day long

They were bringing down together
Yes, yes in a 2-part harmony
Till one day, one day my daddy sang alone
He sang his song just for me
Good God

(Sha woo wa wa wa, Sha woo wa wa wa)
You think you're just a fox
And that's all you got to be
Oh well you might be a fox
But lady that ain't enough for me
You're vamping everybody in town
But your jacking me around

[Chorus:]
(You got a pretty) Foxy lady shine it on
I hope you miss me when I'm gone
Cause foxy lady gone is where I'm gonna be

You're super fine
And you blow people's mind I know
But will you pardon me please
If I don't stick around for your show
You got everybody chasing your tail
They even let you put them in jail

[Chorus]
(You got a pretty) Foxy lady shine it on
I hope you miss me when I'm gone
Cause foxy lady gone is where I'm gonna be

Whoa, damn you girl
You went and messed up the world we had
And what I'm trying to say
In my own sweet way is I'm mad
You got everybody singing your tune
But you're flying on a crazy balloon

[Chorus]
(You got a pretty) Foxy lady shine it on
I hope you miss me when I'm gone
Cause foxy lady gone is where I'm gonna be

Hey....


How come the whole world can't be just like me?
I can only sing in two part harmony

    General CommentCorrection, the last verse says, "I know the whole world can't be just like me. I can only sing in two part harmony". I just the 9 minute version of the song and that's all it says for the last 6 minutes, over and over again.
