"Nineteen on the Richter Scale" as written by and David Ashworth Gates....
Alright!

You got your ten girls, do it again girls.
Don't mean nothing to me.
I got the best loving woman in history.

Knees start shaking earth starts quaking.
Every time I hold her tight.
Heart beating thunder, makes me kinda wonder.
If I'll ever make it through the night.

Cause she's a nineteen on the richter scale.
The way she loves, man she oughta be in jail.
And if she was I'd be the first to make her bail.
Cause she's nineteen on the richter scale.

After last night, Mama sure was right.
There's more to a woman than looks.
And I don't mean the way she sews, or cleans house or cooks.

Living on the fault line, working this love mine.
Nobody does me her way.
She gets my knees a-knocking, room starts a-rocking.
Like a Mount St. Helens every night and every day.

Cause she's a nineteen on the richter scale.
The way she loves, man she oughta be in jail.
And if she was I'd be the first to make her bail.
Cause she's nineteen, a nineteen.

She's a nineteen on the richter scale.
The way she loves, man she oughta be in jail.
And if she was I'd be the first to make her bail.
Cause she's nineteen on the richter scale.
