Went to the fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

Said she'd take a look at my palm
Said "Son, do you feel kind of warm?"
And she looked into her crystal ball
Said "You're in love"

Said it could not be so
Not with all the girls I know
Said when the next one arrives
Looking into her eyes

I left there in a hurry
Much to my big surprise
The next thing I discovered
The fortune teller told me lies

So I ran back to that woman
Mad as I could be
Told her I didn't see nobody
How she made a fool out of me

At last something shook me
As if it came down from above
And now the fortune teller
And I fell in love

Southern nights
Have you ever felt a southern night?
Free as a breeze
Not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so

Southern nights
Just as good even when closed your eyes
I apologize to anyone who can truly say
That he has found a better way

Southern skies
Have you ever noticed southern skies?
It's precious beauty lies just beyond the eye
It goes running through your soul
Like the stories told of old
Old man
He and his dog that walked the old land
Ev'ry flower touched his cold hand
As he slowly walked by
Weeping willows
Would cry for joy
Joy

Feel so good
Feel so good
It's frigth'ning
Wish I could
Stop this world from fighting
La da da da da da la da da da da da da da da

Mysteries
Like this and many others in the trees
Blow in the night
In the southern skies

Southern nights
They feel so good it's fright'ning . .
Wish I could stop this world from fighting
La da da da da da la da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da da

The worst person I know, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
She worries me so, mother-in-law,mother-in-law
If she leaves us alone, we would have a happy home
Sent down from below
Mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law

Sin should be her name, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
To me, they're about the same, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
Every time I open my mouth, she steps in, tries to put me out
How could she stoop so low?
Mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law

I come home with my pay, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
She asks me what I make, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
She thinks her advice is a contribution
But if she will leave that will be a solution
And don't come back no more
Mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law

Sin should be her name, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
To me, they're about the same, mother-in-law, mother-in-law
Every time I open my mouth, she steps in, tries to put me out
How could she stoop so low?
Mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law, mother-in-law

Lyrics © EMI Music Publishing

Sneakin' sally through the alley
Sneakin' sally through the alley
Sneakin' sally through the alley
Trying to keep her out of sight
Sneakin' sally through the alley
When up pops the wife

I said, ah I can't find nothing wrong with being friends cos sometimes
She lets me use the car
She said if you can't find nothing wrong with your mind
You'd better find something wrong with her, her
So I began to explain ah that it wasn't just ah what she thought
I'd better find something to do with my time
The fact is I've just been caught

Sneakin' sally through the alley
Sneakin' sally through the alley
Trying to get away clean
Sneakin' sally through the alley
When up pops the queen

Trying to double talk, get myself in trouble talk, catching myself in lies
Catching myself in lies
Mama just looked at me as if I was, ah, crazy
And didn't even bat an eye
So I began to try to explain, ah that it just wasn't what she thought
I'd better find something to do with my time
The fact is ah just been caught, just been caught,
Sneakin, sneakin, sneakin,

Trying to talk doubletalk, get myself in trouble talk
Catching myself in lies, catching myself in lies
Mama just looked at me as if I was crazy
She didn't even bat an eye

Sneakin' sally through the alley with sally
Sneakin' sally through the alley with sally
Sneakin sally through the alley
Sneakin sally through the alley
Sneakin sally through the alley

Belle-maman, belle-maman {x2}

C'est un vrai tyran
(Belle-maman) belle-maman
Elle ressemble à Satan
(Belle-maman) belle-maman
La vie est un enfer
Et je fais des prières
Pour qu'elle fiche le camp
(Belle-maman) belle-maman {x2}

Elle radote tout le temps
(Belle-maman) belle-maman
Elle réclame de l'argent
(Belle-maman) belle-maman
J'y laisserai ma peau
Elle me rendra marteau
Avec ses boniments
(Belle-maman) belle-maman {x2}

Ce qui est surprenant
(Belle-maman) belle-maman
Et même renversant
(Belle-maman) belle-maman
C'est que bien souvent
Malgré tout, je lui pardonne
Car grâce à elle
J'ai la femme la plus mignonne
Et je lui dois tant
(Belle-maman) belle-maman {x2}

(Belle-maman) oh! ma belle-maman

You don't love me no more
Get out my life woman
You don't love me no more
Get out my life woman
You don't love me no more

Get out my eyes teardrops

Get out my life, heartaches

Get off my ladder, woman
I got to climb up to the top
Get off my ladder, woman
There is nothin that can make me stop

Get out the way, woman

We gon' just a-singin' occapella.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just a-singin' occapella.

To add a little song into each life,
You know it's finger poppin' good.
