Three Handed Woman - Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five

Three Handed Woman

Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five

(Ben Raleigh - Hilda Taylor, DECCA 27694, 1951)

Yes, she's a three handed woman
A three handed woman
She's right handed, and left handed
And underhanded too
She's a three handed woman
And she knows just what to do
She's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you

With her left hand she'll caress you
While her right hand straightens your tie
And then she picks the phone up
And calls another guy
Though you take her here and take her there
You'll find before you're through
While you think you're taking her
Jack, she's taking you

'Cause she's a three handed woman
And she knows just what to do
She's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you

Everytime you take her dancing
While her arms hold you tight
Across your shoulder she's making eyes
At every man in sight
When she says goodnight she tells you
You're the one she's crazy 'bout
But you can bet someone else walks in
Jack, when you walk out

'Cause she's a three handed woman
And she knows just what to do
She's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you

With her left hand she'll embrace you
While her right hand dims the light
And then she starts rehearsing
For her date tomorrow night
When she puts her arms around you
There's a love light deep in her eyes
A light that shines for you and me
And fifteen other guys

'Cause she's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Yeah, she's right handed, and left handed
And she's underhanded too

Also recorded by Louis Prima, Lenny Welch, Lucky Peterson, a.o.
