32 teeth in a jawbone, Alabama trying for none
Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run
Reason the poor girls love him, promise them everything
Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring

Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away

Major Domo Billy Bo jangles, sat down and had a drink with me
What's this about Alabama? It keeps a coming back to me
I heard your plea in the courthouse, witness box began to rock and rise
49 sister states all had Alabama in there eyes

Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away

Major said, Why don't we give him rope enough to hang himself?
No need to worry the jury, they probably take care of themselves
23rd psalm Major Domo, reserve me a table for three
Down in the valley of the shadow, just you, Alabama, and me

Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away

Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away
Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away

Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away
Alabama getaway, getaway, Alabama getaway, getaway
