Gloss on her lips
Glass on the ceiling
All the girls showing love while the boys be catching feelings
Once you see her face, her eyes you'll remember
And she'll have you falling harder than a Sunday in September
Whether in Savannah, Kansas, or in Atlanta
She’ll walk in any room have you raising up your antennas
She can fly you straight to the moon or to the ghettos
Wearing tennis shoes or in flats or in stilettos
Illuminating all that she touches eye on the sparrow
A modern day Joan of her Ark or Mia Farrow
Classy, Sassy, put you in a razzle-dazzy
Her magnetic energy will have you coming home like Lassie
Saying ooh, shock it, break it baby
Electro, sophista, funky lady
We the kind of girls who ain't afraid to get down
Electric Ladies go on and scream out loud

Electric Lady, get way down (get down, get down)
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
Electric Lady, get way down (get down, get down)
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to

Cee Lo Green:
Her smile is a special effect
her femininity a firework
enough light to illuminate an entire Earth
Just how does one house it?
And I must utter something absolutely avante-garde to arouse it
The smell of you and the sight of you
The center to the left and the right of you
I'm somewhere in the ballpark of being all heart
She's the intangibility encouraging all art
And I'm so sincere
I'd write my name somewhere to let them know that Lo has been here
But know not to deface it or disgrace it
It's affection
I love you and I'm proud just to embrace it
Lady, let your light shine despite mine
I want to watch you come alive in the nighttime
'Cause she's been blessed with the best, it's depressive
Turn it up, she's electric

Electric Lady, get way down (get down, get down)
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
Electric Lady, get way down (get down, get down)
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to

Lady, Electric Lady
Yeah

Big Boi:
I got that Georgia power
In the way I brush my history having a gripping with some hours
Distracting, divine, hitting 'em from a flower, no botanist
But doubling down with such prowess
And cowards are easily devoured
Ain't no need for sweet and sour chicken
You see about a we about to meteor shower
From the top of the heavens I drew the Earth
Intergalactic satisfaction with me burst a pair of solar flares
And we nowhere because that's only me and her
Hunting me, another dimension in this love and she concurs
Or agree to disagree
We might bump heads, then bump other cause she's into me
Or shall I say I'm all the way into her
On the ass like some yoga pants
Naked Pilates, get it started, get that pole dance
Keep it swollen like a boxer's eye with no hands
With no hands, no hands

Ooh, shock it, break it, baby
(Electric Lady)
Electric Lady, Electric Lady
(Get way down, gotta get down, down...)
