Dirty Martini Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Two in the morning there's a drink in my hand
(Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini)
Nothing moving the place but sweat

I heard a rumor 'bout a Cajun band
(Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini)
The bartender says, "It's early yet"
Wait the bartender says, "It's early yet"

Too many olives in too much gin
Steppin' out in the City of Sin
Too much dirty rice and too many beans
Gettin' down and dirty down in New Orleans
Gettin' down and dirty down in New Orleans

Have another, I believe I will
(Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini)
And you can stir it with a dirty spoon

There's a prescription I've gotta fill
(Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini)
And the doctor's gonna be here soon
Jimmy says, "The doctor's gonna be here soon"

Too many olives in too much gin
Steppin' out in the City of Sin
Too much dirty rice and too many beans
Gettin' down and dirty down in New Orleans
Gettin' down and dirty down in New Orleans

Too many olives in too much gin
Steppin' out in the City of Sin
Too much dirty rice and too many beans
Gettin' down and dirty down in New Orleans
Gettin' down and dirty down in New Orleans

Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini
Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini
Stir it with a dirty spoon
Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini
Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini
Dirt, dirt, dirty Martini
