Evening Gown Lyrics

by Left Banke

Butler opened the parlor door
I took my coat and approached the floor
A door opened at the top of the stairs
A sexy lady she was a-standing there

I stumbled and turned around to see
Her evening gown
Said yeah
Alright

She said, "Forward your love was there"
The light was on the jewels in her hair
The only sign gettin down on my chest
I start to mumble on the way to address

I made the way up and down upon
Her evening gown
Said yeah
Alright

Alright

The door was on the touch of her feet
Her eyes were wide and her hands petite
I knew I didnt stand a breath of a chance
With all her will she gave me a glance

She won't throw me out, I turned around to meet
Her evening gown
Said yeah

Butler opened the parlor door
I took my coat and approached the floor
A door opened at the top of the stairs
A sexy lady, she was a-standing there

I stumbled in and turned around to see
Her evening gown
