Lyrics of

Ida Lee

View the transcriptions
They're throwin' a party
For big Ida Lee
The man from the skyway
The Chinaman and me
There's so much affection
It's making me crazy
I've run out of reasons
For keeping it neat

Everybody's laughin'
Everybody's makin' love
Ida Lee
It's you I'm thinkin' of

Threw out the favors
The hooters and the hats
Put out the candle
And blew out the cat
My temperature's rising
We're all on the chaise lounge
Big Ida Lee
She's nowhere to be found


They open the air shaft
As Ida walks in
She comes up to me and whispers
Honey, where have you been?
I'm stripping my gears
I'm blowing my fuse
Cause Ida Lee's giving me somewhat more than I can use
