I know a gal named Sadie Green,
Hottest gal in New Orlean,
She loves to dance, she loves to sing,
Say, she'll take a chance on any old thing!
The other night down at the hall
When the band would play,
You know, Miss Sadie'd get on that floor,
Boy, and this is what she'd say:

"What she say, Don?"

How'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Twee-twee-twee-twa-twa!
Oh, how'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Oh, gee, baby, oh sure!
Say, I'll admit I'm not the best in town,
But I'll be best until the best come 'round.
How'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Twee-twee-twee-twa-twa!

I'm asking you, how'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Twee-twee-twee-twee-twa-twa!
Oh, how'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Oh, gee, baby, oh sure!
Now, I'm not braggin', but it's understood,
That everything I do, I sure do good!
How'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Mmmmmm-ah!

How'm I doin'? Hey-hey!
Twee-twee-twee-nya-nya-nya-nya!
Oh,how'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Oh, gee, baby, oh sure!
Now, I only meant to do a little bit,
You done made me like it and I just can't quit!
How'm I doin'? Hey, hey!
Twee-twee-twee-twee-twa-twa!

Oh, how'm I doin'?
Hey, hey!
