lyrics

I got my blue dress on
I think I’ll go downtown
Walk into Woodwards
Buy me a good purse
One that can hold a few pounds

I got my black high heels
Oh, and they make me feel
Like Jacki O or Marilyn Monroe
I got my black high heels

And now I just need a place to put this cash
He thought he could fool me but I found his stash
And I’m going shopping and then out to find me a little house
Somewhere a little South of here

I got my suitcase packed
I won’t be looking back
Cuz I’ve had enough of vacuuming rugs
Go find a maid for that!

I got my satin gloves
‘Case I’m inclined to love
Find me a good man
With money to spare and
A hankering for the stuff
