Have you seen the cute and keen
Baby sweet as a tangerine?
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

Got blazin' eyes, like temptation,
No more like 'em in creation;
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

She's the red hot mama from Bahama with the red hot cootchie-coo!
You get sweet infection in the deep hot section,
When that gal looks at you!

She ain't fat, she ain't lean,
A just right baby, she's inbetween,
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

Have you seen the cute and keen
Baby sweet as a tangerine?
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

Got blazin' eyes, like temptation,
No more like 'em in creation;
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

She's the red hot mama from Bahama with the red hot cootchie-coo!
Get sweet infection in the deep hot section,
When that gal looks at you!

She ain't fat, she ain't lean,
A just right baby, she's inbetween,
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

Get with me and give me your attention,
I've found affection built to my dimension,
She's lovely, she's sweet,
She's hot, but discreet,
The name I gave my honey is so complete!

Have you seen her, cute and keen,
A baby sweet as a tangerine,
That's my gal, Mezzanine!

Listen, I'd just like to mention
All I like in my creation,
She's a red-hot mama from Bahama with a red-hot kootchie-coo,
You get her sweet affection if you need perfection when my gal looks at you!

She ain't fat, she ain't thin,
She's just right, she's inbetween,
That's my gal, Mezzanine!
