Lyrics


There she is again, steppin' out of her limousine, well

Looking like the cover of a twenty-dollar magazine

She's got it where you find it

If you know what I mean


She's a natural born woman

Natural born woman

She's a natural born woman


There she is again watch her stop the Main Street in its tracks

Looking like Creole queen, hair hangin' down her back

I say, don't look too long, boy

She'll make your glasses crack


She's a natural born woman

Natural born woman

She's a, yeah yeah, natural born woman


Yeah yeah, get your track

Yeah, natural born woman

Yeah, yeah, natural born woman

Yeah, yeah, she's a natural born woman


Well, I'm sweatin' and I'm shakin' when I'm bringin' you the news

You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Why I'm standin' here today

Preachin' natural born woman blues


Well, she's a natural born woman

Well, yeah, natural born woman

Well, yeah, natural born woman


Well, I'm looking out my back door, wonderin' which place to go

Think I'll move on down to Memphis

Pay my money to see a rock 'n' roll show

Find me a sweet-heart Susie, together we can lose control


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

She's a natural born woman

Yeah, yeah, natural born woman

Yeah, natural born woman

Yeah
