“I Got a Woman” Lyrics

Mike: One, two, three, four!

I got a woman
Way over town
She’s good to me
She’s good to me
I got a woman
Over town, ah
She’s good to me
She’s good to me-me-me-me
Now, now she’s my baby
Don’t you understand?
I know, I know, I’m her lovin’ man
I got a woman
Over town
She’s good to me
She’s good to me

I got a woman
Over town

Over town, ha ha
She’s good to me
She’s good to me-me-me
Ah now, baby
Whoa, yes, indeed
And I know I’m the kind of guy she needs
I got a woman
Over town
She’s good to me
Good to me, hey

She always answers
My beck and call
Every lovin’ mama
Mama, she’s so tall
I feel so proud now walkin’ by her side
Couldn’t get a better girl no matter how hard I tried

I got a woman
Over town
Good to me
She’s good to me
I got a woman
Over town, ha
She’s good to me
Good to me
Ah, now she’s my baby
Don’t you understand?
And I know I’m her lovin’ man
I got a woman
Way over town
She’s good to me
She’s good to me, work out

[break]

She always answers
My beck and call
Lovin’ mama
Mama, she’s so tall
I’d feel so proud walkin’ by her side
Couldn’t get a better girl no matter how hard I tried

I got a woman
Way over town
She’s good to me
She’s good to me
I got a woman
Over town, ha
She’s good to me
She’s good to me
Now, she’s my baby, now now now
Understand, now now now now
I know, I know, I’m her lovin’ man
I got a woman
Ah, way over town
She’s good to me
She’s good to me

She’s good to me
Aww, got to, got to
Good to me

Davy: Whoa! Hello! No short jokes, no short jokes!
Peter: Michael’s [???] Ha ha ha.
Micky: Alright!
Davy: [???]
Peter: Hey, listen, we’re gonna play a game, and we’re gonna, it’s gonna be a big flash, because what it is, is everybody flashes their flash cubes at the same time, and uh, that’s a pretty big flash. If you like big flashes, you’ll like this; if you don’t, you’re gonna hate it. The purpose, or one of the other ideas is so that everybody who forgot to bring a flash cube is gonna get a flash picture anyway, ’cause as soon as Micky comes out here, we’re gonna go like “one, two, flash” and that’s when you—hold it!—that’s when you do it. Later. When Micky gets out here. As soon as he changes his shirt and breathe a little oxygen and uh, I hear ya, for cryin’ out loud! Ahh! Ha ha ha. [???]
Mike: Okay, wait a minute. Everybody who’s got a camera now, hold it way up in the air just so we’re gonna play the game. Make sure you got it all loaded up. Okay, you ready now? Now remember, the flash is on three, okay? Here we go. Everybody ready? Okay, here we go. One, two, flash!
Davy: Yay!
