HARD HEARTED HANNAH
Ella Fitzgerald


In old Savannah, I said Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm
The climates of the southern brand
But here's what I don't understand
They've got a gal there
A pretty gal there
Who's colder than an Arctic storm
Got a heart just like a stone
Even Ice-men leave her alone
They call her hard-hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Leather is tough
But Hannah's heart is tougher
She's a gal who likes to
See men suffer
To tease them and thrill 'em
Torture and kill 'em
Is her delight they say
I saw her at the seashore
With a great big pan
There was Hannah pouring water
On a drowning man
She's Hard-Hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah GA
They call her hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Talk of your cold,
Refrigerating mammas
Brother, she's a polar bear's pajamas
To tease them and thrill 'em
To torture and kill 'em
Is her delight they say
An evening spent with Hannah
Sittin' on her knees
Is like travelin' through Alaska
In your BPT's
She's hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah GA
Can you imagine a woman
As cold as Hannah
She's got the right name,
"The Vamp of Savannah"
Any time a woman can take a great big pan
And start pouring water on a drowning man
She's hard hearted Hannah
The vamp of Savannah GA

Spoken:
Ooh, she's sweet as sour milk!
