Met a foxy lady down N New Orleans
Finest little woman that ever did C
When asked her, "Baby, what do U do 4 fun?"
She said, "U look young enuff 2 B my son"
& kept on singin', yeah
Yeah... {scatting}

She made me feel real bad that did not buy
just came right on out with this funky reply
said, " may B young but would U rather me B old?
My money is still green & my love is made of gold"
Oh yeah, yeah... {scatting}

She said, "Come over here, little daddy, c'mon, go with me
wanna C ur golden love
Don't worry about the money
wanna find out just what U'r made of"
Hey {scatting}

Went 2 her apartment way across town
Sure was a long way 2 go just 2 get down
My hands began 2 tremble once we got inside
She looked at me & smiled & said
"Prince, do U wanna ride, do U wanna ride?"
Do U wanna ride, do U wanna ride?

She took me by the hand & led me 2 her boat
We flipped a coin 2 C who would stroke
Heads! won so took the oar
Then rowed & rowed until she couldn't stand it no more
& kept on singin', oh baby, oh yeah
Yeah... {scatting}

When we got thru sailing, couldn't sail no more
She said, " never been loved like this b4"
Anybody ask U who destroyed all ur pride
Tell 'em, "The golden lover did it, yes he did
& he sure knows how 2 ride"
Said, "He knows how 2 ride"
Ride, he knows how 2 ride

Yeah, wanna feel it
Oh yeah, ur sailing days R over
done cleaned up this town
Yeah, done blown ur cover
Yeah, don't mess with the golden lover
Don't U want 2 ride with me, baby?
Don't U want 2 ride?
Don't U want 2 ride with me, baby?
Don't U want 2 ride?
