Lyrics

Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen years ago, On a black, full moon night. I met a girl, named Abyssinia Jones. She was only, fifteen years old, And the devil had her soul. And any man she saw she wanted, She could own. But that was eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago.

She had, a switch in her walk, And a slyness in her talk, And her eyes, shined as black as cole, yeah. Now she was only, fifteen years old, But the devil had her soul. A-ah ooh, Abyssinia Jones. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. A-ah, that was eighteen. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. Eighteen, eighteen years ago. The girl she had, lived all her life. And didn't know the difference between wrong and right. Well ah ooh, Abyssinia Jones. So glad she's behind me, And I hope that she'll never find me. Cause I never want to see, No I never want to see, Abyssinia Jones. Won't she leave me alone, The devil, Abyssina Jones. Eighteen years have passed, I think I've freed myself at last, From the power, of Abyssinia Jones. The woman that I got she's thirty-three. And as fine as she can be. And ah ooh, she loves me. Ah, eighteen, long ago, Ah, eithteen, long ago. Long ago. Fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three, Fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three Fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three. What are you trying to tell me. Fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three, Fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three What are you trying to tell me. Hey, have you noticed your wife the way she walks? Hey, have you noticed your wife the way she talks? Hey, have you noticed the color of her eyes? Hey, I think you're in for a big surprse. Hey, fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three, Hey, fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three. Hey, fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three, Hey, fifteen and eighteen is thirty-three. Aaahhhh.
