Dig, you really wanna flip your lid
Try and give a listen to the singer
Hip or square, dig her wares

When money's stiff, she's thrivin' on a riff
She turns the major into minor cool
In her town she's renowned
She's their crowl jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
And her phrasin', just like a saxophone

Workin' in the daytime, jammin' every night
Till the broad daylight
Blowin' over changes that would give most gals a fright
People call her Sassy, that's her attitude
Actin' like the devil but when she sings her blues
You know what she's goin' through

She's hurtin', I'm certain, she just can't say it
Swings, when she sings, her body
Her soul, she's in control

Dig, watch Sassy take another swig
Now she's gettin' evil with her people
Cigarette, final set

Don't wanna miss her prelude to a kiss
Even the trumpet player's smilin' now
She's walkin' the line, scattin' in rhyme
She's a divine jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
And her phrasin', just like a saxophone

Workin' in the daytime, jammin', every night
Till the mornin' light
Hangin' with the fellas, can't quite quench her appetite
People call her Sassy 'cause she knows her mind
Someday she'll be famous and leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants to do

She knows it and shows it, the girl can't help it
Swings when she sings, her body
Soul, she's in control

When she sings, misty eyes

Workin' in the daytime, jammin' everynight
Till the mornin' light
Hangin' with the fellas till she's ready to ignite
People call her Sassy 'cause she knows her mind
Someday when she's famous, she'll leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants to do

She knows it and shows it, the girl can't help it
Swings when she sings, her body
Her soul, she's in control
