He took a hundred pounds of clay
And then he said hey listen
I'm gonna fix this world today
Because I know what's missin'
Then he rolled his big sleeve up
And a brand new world began
He created a woman and lots of lovin' for a man
Whoa oh oh with a hundred pounds of clay
People let me tell you what he did
With just a hundred pounds of clay
He made my life worth livin'
I'm gonna thank him every day
For every kiss you've been givin'
And I will thank him every night
For these arms that are holdin' me tight
He created a woman huh
Lots of lovin' for a man
People let me tell you what he did
Look can'tcha see him walkin' 'round and 'round
Pickin' the clay up offa the ground
He's doin' just what he should do
To make a livin' dream dream like you
Then he rolled his big sleeve up
And a brand new world began
He created a woman
Lots of lovin' for a man
Yes he did
I'm gonna tell you what he did
People let me tell ya what he did
Yes he did yes he did yes he did
I know he did yes he did yeah
Yes he did yes he did oh yes he did
All by himself
Can'tcha you see him walkin' 'round and 'round
Pickin' the clay up offa the ground
Doin' just what he should do
To make a livin' dream dream like you
And he rolled his big sleeve up
And a brand new world began
He created a woman
Lots of lovin' for a man
Yes he did yes he did yes he did yes he did
I know I know what he did
Yes he did yes he did yes he did yes he did
I know yes he did
Yes he did
I know he did yes he did yes he did
I know I know I know what he did yes he did
