Aah, I'm itchy
And I don't no where to scratch
Come here, baby
Scratch my back
I know you can do it
So baby, get to it
Aah, you're workin' wit' it now
Ya got me feelin' so good
A li'l bit to the center now, baby
This little girl sho' knows how to scratch!
Now you're doin' a chicken scratch
(instrumental & guitar)
Aah, it's lookin' good, baby!
Just go 'head an scratch it!
That's what I'm talkin' about
(harmonica - instrumental to end)
