the devil’s bells

Posted: 11/11/2011 in house of women

in the courthouse,

they got a second floor

(mine’s better)

just as if them old hairy-nosed judges

was puttin’ on wings not ratty black robes

that their nasty wives mend

in front of evenin’ tv shows.


in the court house,

they got an elevator

but i always take the marble stairs.

judge gordy like to keep his cattin’ quiet,

an’ i will say

gee i miss ya babe


can’t ya make a girl’s problem

just go away


i saw your (nasty nasty) wife

just the other day–

b’lieve i’ll pay a call.


in the courthouse

they got these marble stairs

and i got

a pair of heels that if i wear

make a noise goin’ up

like the devil’s bells.

judge gordy gonna hear my problem,

good as fixed before i knock;

honey i got faith

an’ a knack to walk the walk.
