From the musical ĎACE OF DIAMONDSí

Slop it over the rim

Donít say nothiní Ďbout the shape that Iím in

Everybody needs a little help now and then

So, pour it out

Put it in

If you need a little somethiní

Ya-oo

Slop it over the rim

 

Slop it over the sides

Let it rip and let the other one slide

Gonna party with my baby till we

Get it right

So, pour it out

Put it in

We need a little somethiní

Ya-oo

Slop it over the rim

 

Get what I need no matter what they pay

You can bet your life on that

Say what I mean and I mean what I say

So go, lead, follow or get out of my way

 

Slide it on down the line

She ainít pretty but tonight sheíll be mine

Give her my best, tell her

Love is blind

So, pour it out

Put it in

Gonna need a little somethiní

Ya-oo

Slop it over the rim

 

Slop it over the rim

Runniní on empty, so hit me again

Peddle to the metal of the

Thunderiní wind

So, pour it out

Put it in

When you need a little somethiní

Ya-oo

Slop it over the rim
