Sister Ray Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Jimmy came from Carolina
Wants to know a way to earn a dollar
Says he's suffering with a fever
Just like sister Ray says

I'm searching for my mainline
I couldn't hit it sideways
I'm searching for my mainline
I couldn't hit it sideways

Jimmy's got a new piece
Lying cold for a quarter hour
Took it out of his suitcase
Shot him dead right on the floor

Hey man, you shouldn't do that
Don't you know you'll stain the carpet?
Hey man, you shouldn't do that
Just like sister Ray says

Too busy sucking on a ding dong
Hey, don't you know you'll stain the carpet?
Too busy sucking on my ding dong
Hey, you know you shouldn't do that

I'm searching for my mainline
I couldn't hit it sideways
I'm searching for my mainline
Going to count one, two, three, four

Jimmy came from Carolina
Wants to know a way to earn a dollar
Says he didn't like the weather
It's just like sister Ray says

Hit on it Jim, hit on it Jim
Hit on it Jim, hit on it Jim, Jim
Hit on it Jim, hit on it Jim
Hit on it Jim, hit on it Jim, Jim
Hit on it Jim, hit on it Jim
Hit on it Jim, hit on it Jim, Jim

Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night

Jimmy's got a new piece
Cold hearted for the fingering
Took it out in front of him
Shot him dead right on the floor

Hey man, you shouldn't do that
Hey, don't you know you'll stain the carpet?
Hey man, you shouldn't do that
Don't you know you'll stain the carpet
It's just like Sister Ray said
Just like Sister Ray said

Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night

[Incomprehensible]

Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night

Had a good night, had a good night
Had a good night, had a good night

Just like sister Ray said
Just like sister Ray said
[Incomprehensible]
