BIG LEGGED WOMAN

by Brownie McGhee


Big legged woman now, where have you been?
I ain't had no lovin' now, since God knows when
Aaah, big legged woman tell me where have you been?
I ain't had no lovin' yeah, since God knows when

Big legged woman now, put on your negligee
I wanna find out what you got that's getting me
Aaah, big legged woman please put on your negligee
I just wanna find out what you got that's killin' me

All my life big legged women's all I crave
I believe to my soul they gonna carry me to my grave
All my life big legged women's all I crave
I believe to my soul they gonna carry me to my grave

When I was kid going to school
'Twas a big legged woman made me break mama's rule
Oh, when I was kid goin' to the public school
It was a big legged teacher made me break my mama's rule

You got a big legged woman boys, pin'r to your side
She holds up her thumb now, I'm bound to let her ride
You got a big legged woman, please pin her to your side
Now she holds up her thumb, I'm bound to let her ride
