Better Get It While You Can

She's got a stainless steel liver... make any man quiver
The way she drinks that Thunderbird wine
She's got her feet up on the table and she's naked to the navel
Oh I wish she was a friend of mine

If that ain't enough, Lord, she plays the guitar
Just like Mississippi John Hurt
The room's start to bumpin' feet start to pumpin'
My heart jump right outta my shirt

CHORUS:
Better get it while you can
I believe this girl is ready
Well you call yourself a man, Bozo
You better be steady, Freddie
Pull your socks up to your chin
Jump right in
You better get it while you can

Well now the whiskey's kinda soothing
So my feets start to moving
And I stroll on up to say: "Hi!"
But the floor is full of razors
And her eyes are just like lasers
Oooh my tongue feels like a piece of pie
So after choking on my spirit
(that's what you get for getting near it)
She start talking like a telephone
Then she raps her arms around me
Them arms they like to drown me
This girl knows about the flesh and bone

CHORUS:
Better get it while you can
I believe this girl is ready ee-ee
Well you call yourself a man, Jughead
You better be steady, Eddie
Pull your socks up to your chin

Jump right in
You better get it while you can

Pull your socks up to your chin
Jump right in
You better get it while you
You better get it while you
You better get it while you can
