Jivin’ Man

You say you’re gonna set me up
with a girl as sweet as wine
you ask me how bout friday night
and i say well friday’s fine
but first i’d like to know a thing or two about this dame
what’s she like and what about the size and shape of her fine frame
is she brunette or blond, and boy the way you start to stall
i have to wonder if this woman has any hair at all

don’t blow sunshine up my skirt my friend
don’t be pullin on my chain
don’t you try and jive a jivin man like me
do you think that i was born just yesterday?

you tell me that you got a car
that you want to sell to me
this ride is fine you say just needs a little tlc
it’s got brand new tires and battery
the body’s clean and straight
and for what you’re askin I ain’t hooked but i just might take the bait
you’re gonna cut me such a deal cause i’m so close to your heart
round now i start to thinkin will the motor even start

don’t blow sunshine up my skirt my friend
don’t be pullin on my chain
don’t you try and jive a jivin man like me
do you think that i was born just yesterday?

you tell me that you like my suit
and the shirt and tie i wear
you even claim to envy all my thick and shiny hair
you like my car, you dig my girl, you think they’re outta sight
well i been meanin to talk to you bout that car, and she’s not my girl alright?
you’d like your shoes to shine like mine and you mean to ask me how
oh brother tell me what you gonna try and sell me now

don’t blow sunshine up my skirt my friend
don’t be pullin on my chain
don’t you try and jive a jivin man like me
do you think that i was born just yesterday?

you must think my noodles slipped off the plate
and i would have to agree
cause you fooled me twice so shame on me
