Doc and Sally inside
They're cooking for the down five
Who're staring at Miss Rayon
Who's busy licking up her pig pen

I'm searching for my mainline
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
It's just like Sister Ray says

Rosey and Miss Rayon
They're busy waiting for her booster
Who just got back from Carolina
Said she didn't like the weather

They're busy waiting for her Sailor
Who's dressed in pink and leather
He's just here from Alabama
He wants to know a way to earn a dollar

I'm searching for my mainer
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
I couldn't hit it sideways
Just like Sister Ray said
Play it on

Cecil's got his new piece
He cocks and shoots it bang between three and four
He aims it at the Sailor
Shoots him down dead on the floor

Ah, you shouldn't do that
Don't you know you'll stain the carpet
Now don't you know you'll stain the carpet
And by the way you've got a dollar

Oh no man, I haven't got the time-time
Too busy sucking on a ding-dong
She's busy sucking on my ding-dong
Ah, she does just like Sister Ray said

I'm searching for my mainline
I said I c-c-couldn't hit it sideways
I c-c-couldn't hit it sideways
J-J-Just like Sister Ray says

Now who's that knocking
Who's that knocking on my chamber door
Now could it be the police?
They come and take me for a ride-ride

Oh but I haven't got the time-time
Fey, hey, hey, she's been sucking on my ding-dong
She's busy sucking on my ding-dong
Now you're just like Sister Ray said

I'm searching for my mainline
I couldn't hit it sideways
I couldn't hit it sideways
Ah, you're just like, ah just like, ah just like
Just like, ah just like, ah just like

[Incomprehensible]

I'm searching for my mainline
I couldn't hit it sideways
I couldn't hit it sideways
Ah, just like, just like, just like
Just like, just like

Now Rosey and Miss Rayon
They're busy waiting for her booster
She's just got back from Carolina
She says she's bound to beat a Sailor

I said she haven't got the time-time
You're busy sucking on my ding-dong
You're busy sucking on my ding-dong
Now you're just like Sister Ray said

I'm searching for my mainline
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
Said I couldn't hit it sideways
Just like, just like Sister Ray said

I said now Cecil's got his new piece
He cocks and shoots it bang between three and four
He aims it at the Sailor
He shoots him down dead on the floor

Ah, you shouldn't do that
Don't you know you'll hit the carpet
Don't you know you'll mess the carpet
And by the way you've got a dollar

She hasen't got the time-time
Busy sucking on his ding-dong
She's busy sucking on his ding-dong
You're just like Sister Ray said

I'm searching for my mainline
Couldn't hit it sideways
Couldn't hit it sideways
Just like, just like, just like Sister Ray said

Doc and Sally inside
They're cooking for the down five
Who're staring at Miss Rayon
Who's busy licking up her pig pen

I'm searching for my mainline
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
Now just like, just like, I said just like
