Long Cool Woman (in a Fuku)
- Ph34r & Loathing at the Sea of Light

Saturday night I was downtown,
Drinkin' at the Sea of Light,
Sittin' with a couple of bad men,
Empty beer mugs piling high.

Beer garden high above the city
Full of people ready to play,
Just about to call for the next round
When I saw that woman comin' my way.

A pair of steely eyes made me tumble inside,
My temperature started to rise,
She was a long cool woman in a fuku,
Just a 5'10, beautiful tall!
Stronger than whiskey when she sees you,
Yeah that long cool woman had it all!

I saw her headin' toward the bar then
Her movements were a flickering dance,
The Sega-guy said "Better get ready,
"'Cos I'm tellin' you I've seen that stance!"
Suddenly she stood before me,
He look was pure smoldering cool,
I managed to ask her for her order
Feelin' like a stutterin' fool.

Well she took hold of my left hand,
Then she took hold of my right,
And she told me, "Don't you fear
"Just come on over here,"
And my spirit took a flight,
'Cos I got to spend a night
Dancin' with a long cool woman in a fuku,
Just a 5'10, beautiful tall!
Stronger than whiskey when she leads you,
Yeah that long cool woman had it all!

Long Cool Woman (in a Black Dress)
The Hollies


Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sitting in a nest of bad men
Whisky bottles piling high

Bootlegging boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the DA man
When I heard this woman singing a song

A pair of 45's made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9, beautiful tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
'Cos that long cool woman had it all

I saw her headin' to the table
Well a tall walking big black cat
When Charlie said I hope that you're able boy
Well I'm telling you she knows where it's at
Well suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A jumping out of doors and tables
Well I heard somebody shooting a gun

Well the DA was pumping my left hand
And then she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'Cos you're gonna be spared
Well I've gotta be forgiven
If I wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Well, with just one look I was a bad mess
'Cos that long cool woman had it all
