I mean it's tight like that If you see my man, tell him to hurry home I ain't had no bread since he's been gone Another man, slender and slim When he struts his stuff, why, too bad, Jim Oh, it's tight like that Oh, it's tight like that Ah, hear me talkin' to you I mean it's tight like that (Instrumental Break) Ah, the little red rooster said to the hen You ain't laid a egg in I can't tell when The little red hen said to the rooster You don't come around as often as ya used ta Now it's tight like that A long delay makes it tight like that Hear what I say, hear me talkin' to you I mean it's tight like that (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
