then the song goes into C#-major

C#.....

She's got hips like a honey, and, Lord, she can make 'em move.
She's got hips like a honey, and, Lord, she can make 'em move.
And she'll do anything to make you get in her groove.

Lord have mercy on you woman, and your wicked soul.
Lord have mercy on you woman, and your wicked soul.
'Cause that high falootin' woman, gonna' live til she's a hundred years old.


in the outro there's a D after the C# and then back to C#.
end.
