Miss Celie's Pants Lyrics


by . From Color Purple.


Celie
Dear nettie, i went back home. The house was okay, but the store was a dusty mess.
But i fixed it up, and now i'm makin' pants for anybody who wants 'em. I change the
Cloth, i change the print, i change the waist, i change the pocket. Only thing i can't
Do is quit makin' 'em.
All i need's a needle and a spool of thread.
Got about a million patterns in my head.
All the ladies' legs are gonna love to dance
When they in miss celie's pants.
Glodene & odessa
Gabardine, velveteen, satin, or lace.
Buttons and bows all over the place.
Celie
Styles that make you look like a queen.
Church ladies
That woman's a wiz with her sewin' machine!
Everyone
Who dat say
Who dat say
Who dat?
Who dat say
Who dat say
Who dat?
Who dat say
What you say
In miss celie's pants!
Who dat say
Who dat say
Who dat?
Sofia
Lookit here,
Get out my way.
Sofia's back,
And i'm here to stay
Everyone
In miss celie's pants!
Shug
Girl, you swept out the mem'ries,
Filled this place with joy.
Sofia
In this big ol' store
18
Doris
Got your sewing machines,
Darlene
Mirrors shiny clean,
Jarene
And a fittin' room
Smell like sweet perfume.
Sofia
That man might have
Shug, glodene & odessa
Done you wrong,
Celie
But look . . .
I said, look . . .
Are you lookin'? . . .
Celie looks around at all of them and sings to shug.
Celie
Look who's wearing the pants now!
Everyone
Who dat say
Who dat say
Who dat?
Who dat say
Who dat say
Who dat?
Who dat say
What you say
In miss celie's pants!
(scat)
Who dat say
Who dat say
Who dat?
Who dat say
What you say
In miss celie's pants!
