Electric Lady Lyrics

by Janelle Monae

Ooh, you shock it, shake it, baby
Electric lady you're a star
You got a classic kind of crazy
But you know just who you are
You got the look the Gods agree they wanna see
All the birds and the bees
Dancing with the freaks in the trees
And watch the water turn to wine
Outer space and out your mind
Ooh shock me one good time

Electric Lady, get way down
Cause tonight we gon' do what we wanna do
Lady, get way down
Cause tonight we gon' do what we wanna do
Lady
Electric Lady

Yeah, I'll reprogram your mind
My spaceship leaves at 10
I'm where I wanna be, just you and me
Baby talking on the side, as the world spins around
Can you feel your spine unwind
Watch the water turn to wine
Ooh shock it one good time

Electric Lady, get way down
Cause tonight we gon' do what we wanna do
Lady, get way down
Cause tonight we gon' do what we wanna do

Gloss on her lips
Glass on the ceiling
All the girls showin' love
While the boys be catchin' feelings
Once you see her face, her eyes you'll remember
And she'll have you falling harder than a Sunday in September
Whether in Savannah, Kansas or in Atlanta
She'll walk in any room have you raising up your antennas
She can fly you straight to the moon or to the ghettos
Wearing tennis shoes or in flats or in stilettos
Illuminating all that she touches, eye on the sparrow
A modern day Joan of Arc or Mia Farrow
Classy, Sassy, put you in a razzy bazzy
Her magnetic energy will have you coming home like Lassie
Saying "ooh shock it, break it, baby"
Electro, sofista, funky, lady
We the kind of girls who ain't afraid to get down
Electric ladies go on and scream out loud

Electric Lady, get way down
Cause tonight we gon' do what we wanna do
Lady, get way down
Cause tonight we gon' do what we wanna do

Ooh, shock it, break it, baby, Electric Lady, Electric Lady
