“99 Pounds” Lyrics

“Wow!”

I tell you she’s a heartbreaker, and you can’t tell me she ain’t (Hey, hey)
There’s a little devil living under all that powder and paint (Hey, hey)
And she can hang you up every night
And get you so uptight
She’s the ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
I say ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
She’s the ninety-nine pounds and some kinda dynamite

I tell you half a tin of sugar ain’t half as sweet as her (Hey, hey)
She can change it, rearrange it, ’til you don’t remember what you were (Hey, hey)
And it don’t even pay to fight
’Cause she don’t know wrong from right
She’s the ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
I said ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
She’s the ninety-nine pounds and some kinda dynamite
Wow!

[break]

And while she may look like an angel, but she’s made outta T.N.T. (Hey, hey)
She’s a little bitty baby of explosivity (Hey, hey)
Yeah, but when she hold ya tight
She’s some kind of outta sight
She’s the ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
I say ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
I say ninety-nine pounds and some kinda dynamite

I say ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
I say ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
Sixty-two inches (Sixty-two inches)
I say ninety-nine pounds (Ninety-nine pounds)
