"Standin' on the Corner" as written by and Lea Holder....
Standin' on the corner handbag on her thigh
Standin' in the shadows
Giving all the boys the eye
Does anybody wanna try

Standin' on the corner handbag on her hip
Standin' in the doorway
Giving all the boys some lip
Does anybody wanna dip
So look out now 'cos I might be over tonight

She's a sure shining shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' baby yeah
And she's found herself a shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' man
She's a hard casin' fast racin'
Male chasin' boot lacin' baby yeah
And to get her evil way she'll do most
Anything her devil says she can

Standin' on the corner burning up inside
Bending over backwards
Wants her fire engine tried
Does anybody need the ride, me

Leaning out the window giving out her points
Learned on teacher's right knee
Now it's on the low down joints
Does anybody the points
So look out now 'cos I might be over tonight

She's a sure shining shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' baby yeah
And she's found herself a shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' man
She's a hard casin' fast racin'
Male chasin' boot lacin' baby yeah
And to get her evil way she'll do most
Anything her devil says she can

She's standin' on the corner
With her handbag on her thigh
And then she's standin' in the shadows
Givig all the boys the eye
Does anybody wanna try, me
So look out now 'cos I might be over tonight

She's a sure shining shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' baby yeah
And she's found herself a shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' man
She's a hard casin' fast racin'
Male chasin' boot lacin' baby yeah
And to get her evil way she'll do most
Anything her devil says she can ooh

Aah she's a sure shining shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' baby yeah
And she's found herself a shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' man
She's a hard casin' fast racin'
Male chasin boot lacin' baby yeah
And to get her evil way she'll do most
Anything her devil says she can

She's a sure shining shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin'
Son of a gun from Arizona
That one day I'm gonna own that baby yeah
And she's found herself a shimmy shootin'
High falutin' rootin' tootin' man
She's a hard casin' fast racin'
Male chasin' boot lacin' no good timin'
Sweet tastin' hair raisin' two facin' baby yeah
And to get her evil way she'll do most
Anything her devil says she can
