Lyrics:
        Fee, fee, fi, fi, fo-fo, fum
        Look at Molly now [2: look out once again, now], here she comes
        Wearin' her wig hat and shades to match
        She's got high-heel shoes and an alligator hat

        F7
        Wearin' her pearls and her diamond rings
                   C7
        She's got bracelets on her fingers, now, and everything
                    G7
        She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
        F7
        Devil with the blue dress on

        C7              F7          C7          F7
        Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
        C7              F7        C7
        Devil with the blue dress on

Verse 2:

        Wearin' her perfume, Chanel No. 5
        Got to be the finest girl alive
        She walks real cool, catches everybody's eye
        She's got such good lovin' that they can't say goodbye
        Not too skinny, she's not too fat
        She's a real humdinger and I like it like that

        She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
        Devil with the blue dress on

        Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
        Devil with the blue dress on

"Good Golly Miss Molly" interlude:

                         Eb7
        Good golly, Miss Molly
        You sure like to ball
                         Ab7
        Good golly, Miss Molly
                         Eb7
        You sure like to ball
                                  Bb7
        While you're rockin' and rollin'
        Ab7                         Eb7
           Can't you hear your mama call
                 Eb [N.C.]
        From the early, early mornin' 'til the early, early nights
        See Miss Molly rockin' at the House of Blue Lights

                          Ab7
        Good golly, Miss Molly
                         Eb7
        You sure like to ball
                                  Bb7
        While you're rockin' and rollin'
        Ab7
            Can't you hear your mama call
