Sassy Lyrics

By Kurt Elling, Charlie Hunter, Bill Bodine, Cheryl Bentyne, Janis Siegel. Music Publishers: Dill Dough Bean Music (ASCAP); Morton St. Music (ASCAP); Yikes Publishing (ASCAP).

Ya really wanna flip your lid?
Step up and give a listen to the singer.
Hip or square, say a prayer.
When money's stiff, she'll make it on a riff. She turns the major into minor cool.
All over town, she is renown. Woman's the crown jewel of sound.

Dig it!
That Sassy's on a hipper trip.
Rhythm, she can sharpen to a stinger.
Blows insane. That's her lane.
She keeps it loose, a ballad or a blues; Ten thousand hours on a thousand gigs.
Takin' the crown, uptown or down. She is the baddest around.

She's brazen. Simply amazin'
She's blazin.' Shit is hair-raisin.'
Vibrations, a brain invasion.
Her phrasin's just like a saxophone.

Workin' in the daytime. Jammin' ev'ry night.
Blowin' over changes that would give most cats a fright. People call her Sassy. That's her attitude.
Actin' like the devil. But when she sings her blues, you know what she's goin' through.

She's brazen. Simply amazin.'
She's blazin.' Shit is hair-raisin.'
Vibrations, her own creation.
But her phrasings just like a saxophone.

Watch Sassy take another swig. Now she's gettin' evil with the people.
Cigarette; Final Set. Don't wanna miss a prelude to a kiss.
Even the trumpet player's smilin' now. She's walkin' the line, cuttin' in rhyme, she is divine all the time.
Workin' in the daytime. Jammin' ev'ry night. Hangin' with the fellas, till she's ready to ignite.
People call her Sassy, cuz she knows her mind. She became a living legend from songs she redefined.

She's brazen. Simply amazin.'

From the songs she refined...

She's blazin.' Shit is hair-raisin.'

They call her Sassy.

Vibrations, her own creation.

Got that Sassy strut.

Her phrasing just like a saxophone.

Actin' like a devil.
Actin' like a devil.

She's brazen. Simply amazin.'
She's blazin.' Shit is hair-raisin.'
Vibrations, her own creation.
Her phrasing just like a saxophone.

Just like a saxophone...
