THREE HANDED WOMAN
(Ben Raleigh - Hilda Taylor)
LOUIS PRIMA (CAPITOL RECORDS)

With her left hand she'll caress you
While her right hand straightens your tie
Then she picks up the telephone
And calls another guy
You take her here and you take her there
You'll find before you're through
While you think you been taking her
She's been taking you

She's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Yeah, she's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Now she's right handed, left handed
And underhanded too

Everytime you take her dancing
And her arms are holding you tight
Across your shoulder she's making eyes
At every man in sight
When she says goodnight she tells you
You're the one she's crazy about
But you can bet that someone else
Walks in when you walk out

She's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Oh, she's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Now she's right handed, left handed
And underhanded too

With her left hand she'll embrace you
While her right hand lowers the light
She starts to work you
For a date tomorrow night
She puts her arms around you
There's a love light in her eyes
A light that shines for you and me
And fifteen other guys

She's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Yeah, she's a three handed woman
And she ain't no good for you
Now she's right handed, left handed
And underhanded too
