It was a night, I wanna tell you a story

Saturday night I was downtown workin' for the FBI
Sittin' in a nest of bad men whiskey bottles pilin' high
A bootleggin' boozer on the west side
Full o' people who were doin' wrong
A just about to call the DA man
When I heard this woman singin' a song

A pair o' 45's made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise

She was a long cool woman in a black dress
She's a five-nine beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

I saw her head up to the table
Just a tall walkin' big black cat
A'Charlie said, "I hope that you're able boy"
'Cause I'm tellin' you she knows where it's at

Well suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
Jumpin' outta doors and tables
When I heard someone shootin' a gun

Well the DA was pumpin' my left hand
And she was a holdin' my right
I said don't be scared, y'gonna be spared
I gotta be forgivin' if I wanna spend my livin' with

A long cool woman in a black dress
She's a five-nine beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

Missy was fine, she blew my mind
I think about that [Incomprehensible]
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
