Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley [Live]
by Robert Palmer



Sneakin’ sally through the alley
Sneakin’ sally through the alley
Sneakin’ sally through the alley
Trying to keep her out of sight
Sneakin’ sally through the alley
When up pops the wife

I said, ah I can’t find nothing wrong with being friends
'Cause sometimes she lets me use the car
She said, "If you can’t find nothing wrong with your mind
You’d better, you'd better find something wrong with her"

So I began to try to explain
Ah that it wasn’t just ah what she thought
I’d better find something to do with my time
The fact is I’ve just been caught

Sneakin’ sally through the alley
Trying to get away clean
Sneakin’ sally through the alley
When up pops the queen

Trying to form double talk, get myself in trouble talk
Catching myself in lies, catching myself in lies
Mama, mama, just looked at me as if I was, crazy, yeah
And didn’t even, didn’t even bat an eye

Sneakin’ sally through the alley
[Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]

Sneakin’ sally through the alley
Trying to get away clean, yeah
Sneakin’ sally through the alley
When up pops the queen

Trying to talk doubletalk, get myself in trouble talk
Catching myself in lies, catching myself in lies, lies
Mama just looked at me as if I was crazy, yeah
She didn’t even, she didn’t even bat an eye

Sneakin’ sally through the alley
