In old Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm

They`ve got a gal there
Who`s colder than an artic storm
Got a heart just like a stone
They call her "hard hearted Hannah"

Leather is tough, but Hannah`s heart is tougher
To tease them and thrill `em
To torture and kill `em
I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan

The vamp of Savannah, G-A
The vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Brotha she`s a polar bear`s pajamas

Is her delight they say
Is like travelin` through Alaska in your BVDs
She`s hard hearted Hannah
Can you imagine a woman as cold as Hannah?

Start pourin` water on a drownin` man
The vamp of Savannah, G-A
Spoken: Ooh! She`s sweet as sour milk.In old Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm

They`ve got a gal there
Who`s colder than an artic storm
Got a heart just like a stone
They call her "hard hearted Hannah"

Leather is tough, but Hannah`s heart is tougher
To tease them and thrill `em
To torture and kill `em
I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan

The vamp of Savannah, G-A
The vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Brotha she`s a polar bear`s pajamas

Is her delight they say
Is like travelin` through Alaska in your BVDs
She`s hard hearted Hannah
Can you imagine a woman as cold as Hannah?

Start pourin` water on a drownin` man
The vamp of Savannah, G-A
Spoken: Ooh! She`s sweet as sour milk.In old Savannah
The weather there is nice and warm

They`ve got a gal there
Who`s colder than an artic storm
Got a heart just like a stone
They call her "hard hearted Hannah"

Leather is tough, but Hannah`s heart is tougher
To tease them and thrill `em
To torture and kill `em
I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan

The vamp of Savannah, G-A
The vamp of Savannah
