In old Savannah
I said Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm
The climate`s of a southern brand

But here`s what I don`t understand
They`ve got a gal there
A pretty gal there
Who`s colder than an artic storm

Got a heart just like a stone
Even nice men leave her alone
They call her "hard hearted Hannah"
The vamp of Savannah

The meanest gal in town
Leather is tough, but Hannah`s heart is tougher
She`s a gal who loves to see men suffer
To tease them and thrill `em

To torture and kill `em
Is her delight they say
I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan
There was Hannah pourin` water on a drownin` man

She`s hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah, G-A
The call her "hard hearted Hannah"
The vamp of Savannah

The meanest gal in town
Talk of your cold, refridgerating mamas
Brotha she`s a polar bear`s pajamas
To tease them and thrill `em

To torture and kill `em
Is her delight they say
An evening spent with Hannah sitting on your knees
Is like travelin` through Alaska in your BVDs

She`s hard hearted Hannah 
The vamp of Savannah, G-A
Can you imagine a woman as cold as Hannah?
She`s got the right name "the vamp of Savannah"

Anytime a woman can take a great big pan
Start pourin` water on a drownin` man
She`s hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah, G-A

Spoken: Ooh! She`s sweet as sour milk.
