Sister, you've been on my mind
Sister, we're two of a kind
So, sister, I'm keepin' my eye on you

Oh, but trust me
No low life's gonna run me around

Remember your name, no twister
Gonna steal your stuff away, my sister
We sho' ain't got a whole lot of time
So-o-o shake your shimmy Sister
'Cause honey the 'shug' is feelin' fine
