Well, we like to have some friends around
Do the twist to Ray Charles and James Brown
After lunch I'll maybe take a nap
I like a nap before a scrap

Honey, pass me more of them peas
Mm, I do like these
And let me have some more of those
More steak and potatoes, yeah

In a little while I'm going downtown
Maybe take me one or two rounds
I'm gonna knock that man clean out
He's going down, no doubt

Maybe I was born on a bad luck day
Born under a bad sign
But today is okay
Today's just fine

Baby you can read my mind
I'll be home just after nine
You're the best medicine I know
Tonight we're gonna let it all go

Put on that pretty silk shirt
Put on on that tight black skirt
Put on those heels so black
We can party on when I get back

Maybe I was born on a bad luck day
Born under a bad sign
But today is okay
Today's just fine
