Lyrics

Dig!
Y' really wanna flip your lid?
Try and give a listen to the singer
Hip or square, dig her wares
When money's stiff
She's thrivin' on a riff
She turns the major
Into minor cool
In her town she's reknown
She's their crowl jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
(When she sings)
Her phrasin's jus' like a saxophone
(Misty eyes)

Workin' in the daytime, jammin'
Ev'ry night (?il the broad daylight)
Blowin' over changes that would
Give mos' gals a fright
People call her sassy
That's her attitude
Actin' like the devil but
When she sings her blues
Y' know what she's goin' through

She's hurtin', I'm certain
She jus' can't say it
Wings, when she sings
Body, soul, she's in control

Dig!
Watch sassy take another swig
Now she's gettin' evil
With her people
Cigarette, final set
Don' wanna miss her
Prelude to a kiss
Ev'n the trumpet player's
Smilin' now
She's walkin' the line, scattin' in
Rhyme, she's a divine jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
(When she sings)
Her phrasin's jus' like a saxophone
(Misty eyes)

Workin' in the daytime, jammin'
Ev'ry night (?il the broad daylight)
Hangin' with the fellas
Can't quite quench her appetite
People call her sassy
Coz she knows her mind
Someday she'll be famous and
Leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants t' do

She knows it, an' shows it
The girl can't help it
Swings when she sings
Body, soul, she's in control

Workin' in the daytime, jammin'
Ev'ry night (?il the broad daylight)
Hangin' with the fellas
?Il she's ready to ignite
People call her sassy
Coz she knows her mind
Someday when she's famous
She'll leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants t'do

(Repeat bass solo)
