SASSY (lyrics by Janis Siegel and Cheryl Bentyne)

Dig!
Y'really wanna flip your lid?
Try and give a listen to the singer
Hip or square, dig her wares
When money's stiff she's thrivin' on a riff
She turns the major into minor cool
In her town she's renown, she's their crown jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
(When she sings)
Her phrasin's jus' like a saxophone
(Misty eyes)

Workin' in the daytime, jammin' ev'ry night ('til the broad daylight)
Blowin' over changes that would give mos' gals a fright
People call her Sassy, that's her attitude
Actin' like the devil but when she sings her blues
Y'know what she's goin' through

She's hurtin'; I'm certain, she jus' can't say it
Wings, when she sings
Body, soul, she's in control
Dig!
Watch Sassy take another swig
Now she's gettin' evil with her people
Cigarette, final set
Don' wanna miss her
Prelude to a Kiss
Ev'n the trumpet player's smilin' now
She's walkin' the line, scattin' in rhyme, she's a divine jewel of jazz

She's brazen, simply amazin'
(When she sings)
Her phrasin's jus' like a saxophone
(Misty eyes)

Workin' in the daytime, jammin' ev'ry night ('til the broad daylight)
Hangin' with the fellas can't quite quench her appetite
People call her Sassy coz she knows her mind
Someday she'll be famous and leave the grind behind
She knows what she wants t'do

She knows it, an' shows it, the girl can't help it
Swings when she sings
Body, soul, she's in control

Workin' in the daytime, jammin' ev'ry night ('til the broad daylight)
Hangin' with the fellas 'til she's ready to ignite

People call her Sassy coz she knows her mind
Someday when she's famous, she'll leave the grind behind


She knows what she wants t'do
