The Band Jemima Surrender

Jemima surrender, I’m gonna give it to you,

Ain’t no pretender, gonna ride in my canoe

If I were a barker in a girly show,

Tell ya what I’d do,

I’d lock the door, tear my shirt and let my river flow

Oh, oh, sweet Jemima, wont’cha come out tonight?

The ground is so warm and the moon is so bright!

Jemima surrender, that’s all you have to do

I’ll bring over my Fender

And I’ll play all night for you

There’s a bird on my head

And his mouth won’t talk (He won’t talk– he’s in shock),

You know he laughs just like a goose,

But looks like a hawk

Jemima, you know what I’m tryin’ to say,

Meet me in the front and we’ll fly away

You can change your name

You can find a new walk

You can change your lock, it’s all the same

You don’t have to give out

If you’ll only give in

You can jump and shout

But can’t you see girl, that I’m bound to win

Jemima surrender, I’m gonna give it to you,

Ain’t no pretender, wanna see my tattoo?

I hand you my rod and you hand me that line,

That’s what you do

And now we ain’t doin’ much fishin’

Or drinkin’ any wine

Sweet Jemima, if I were a king

I’d fix you up with a diamond ring
