Sister,you’ve been on my mindSister, we’re two of a kindSo sister,I’m keepin’ my eyes on youI betcha thinkI don’t know nothin’But singin’ the bluesOh sister, have I got news for youI’m somethin’I hope you thinkthat you’re somethin’ too
Oh, Scufflin’,I been up that lonesome roadAnd I seen a lot of suns goin’ downOh, but trust meNo low life’s gonna run me around
So let me tell you somethin’ sisterRemember your nameNo twister,gonna steal your stuff awayMy sisterWe sho’ ain’t got a whole lot of timeSo shake your shimmy,Sister‘Cause honey the ‘shugis feelin’ fine
