Long Cool Woman (Jacinda Beals) video

Saturday night I was downtown,
Working for the FBI,
Sitting in a nest of bad men,
Whisky bottles piling high;
Bootlegging boozer on the west side,
Full of people who were doing wrong,
Just about to call up the D.A. man,
When I heard this guy singing a song.

A pair of forty-fives made me open my eyes,
Temperature started to rise;
She was a long cool woman in a black dress,
Just a five-nine, beautiful, tall;
With just one look I was a bad mess,
That long cool woman had it all.

Saw her a-heading to the table,
Like a tall-walking, big black cat,
Charlie said, "I hope that you're able, boy,
'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at."
Suddenly we heard a siren,
And everybody started to run,
Jumping out of doors and tables,
When I heard somebody shooting a gun.

Well, the D.A. was pumping my left hand,
She was a-holding my right,
When I told her don't be scared,
'Cause you're gonna be spared;
You gotta be forgiven,
If you want to spend a living with,
A long cool woman in a black dress,
Just a five-nine, beautiful, tall;
Just one look I was a bad mess,
That long cool woman had it all.

Had it all... Had it all... Had it all...
Had it all... Had it all... Ooooooo... Had it all...

From Wikipedia:
The Hollies - English pop and rock group, formed in Manchester in the early 1960s, though most of the band members are from throughout East Lancashire. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the 1960s and 1970s. They enjoyed considerable popularity in many countries, although they did not achieve major US chart success until 1966. Along with The Rolling Stones and The Searchers, they are one of the few British pop groups of the early 1960s that have never officially broken up and that continue to record and perform. The Hollies were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
