Hard Hearted Hannah Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In old Savannah, I said Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm
The climate's of the southern brand
But here's what I don't understand

They've got a gal there, a pretty gal there
Who's colder than an arctic storm
Got a heart just like a stone
Even nice men leave her alone

They call her, "Hard hearted Hannah"
The vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Leather is tough but Hannah's heart is tougher
She's a gal who loves to see men suffer

To tease them and thrill 'em
To torture and kill 'em
Is her delight they say

I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan
There was Hannah pourin' water on a drownin' man

She's hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah, G A

The call her, "Hard hearted Hannah"
The vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Talk of your cold refrigerating mamas
Brother she's a polar bears pajamas

To tease them and thrill 'em
To torture and kill 'em
Is her delight they say

An evening spent with Hannah sitting on your knees
Is like travelin' through Alaska in your BVDs

She's hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah, G A

Can you imagine a woman as cold as Hannah?
She's got the right name, "The vamp of Savannah"
Anytime a woman can take a great big pan
Start pourin' water on a drownin' man

She's hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah, G-A

Ooh, she's sweet as sour milk
