Hell of a Lady
I was a loner and I was seventeen
When I saw her and she blew my mind
I told her "Honey, you are the girl of my dreams."
When she poured me a whiskey and lime
"I'm the king of Coney Island, won't you be my queen?"
I said and asked if she could spare some time
And she said "Sonny, you're really nice and sweet,
Just draw a number and cue up in the line."
She's an angel that swears like a sailor
She's the beat in the heart of my town
She's a trustworthy friend and a traitor
She's a coat hanger when I feel like hangin' around
She's all I ask for, she's all I need
She picks me up, when I'm face down in the street
She's everybody's darling but one hell of a lady to me
