IN A WHIRLPOOL IN HELL WITH MAMIE VAN DOREN (SCRATCHING MY BACK)


WORDS & MUSIC: RAY
GOLDFINGER PUBLISHING, 1993


I saw you in a movie the other day
The way you walked and talked made my heart go astray
Now Iíve got this strange kind of yearning that keeps a-coming back
I want to be in a whirlpool in hell with Mamie Van Doren scratching my back

 

I donít know why-o-why I feel this way
All I know is I go crazy when I hear your name
My friends tell me Iím riding down a no-good track
Wanna be in a whirlpool in hell with Mamie Van Doren scratching my back
Wanna be in a whirlpool in hell with Mamie Van Doren scratching my back

 

Well, it hit me with a bang when I heard you say:
Oh, temptation is my middle name
Is my middle name
Is my middle name
Is my middle name

 

Took a trip to hell Ďcause I wanted to see
Down there I met a guy who looked familiar to me
I asked the devil in a careful tone why heís looking like a wreck
He said:Ē I was in a whirlpool in hell with Mamie Van Doren scratching my back
I was in a whirlpool in hell with Mamie Van Doren scratching my back!Ē

 

Well, it hit me with a bang when I heard you say
Oh, temptation is my middle name
Is my middle name
Is my middle name
Is my middle name
Well, in a whirlpool in hell with Mamie van Doren scratching my back
