Lyrics:

I tell ya she's a heart breaker
And you can't tell me she ain't (hey, hey)
There's a little devil livin'
Under all that powder and paint (hey, hey)
And she can hang you up every night
And get you so uptight
She's a 99 pounds (99 pounds)
I say 99 pounds (99 pounds)
She's a 99 pounds of some kind of dynamite

I tell you half a ton of sugar
Ain't half sweet as her (hey, hey)
She can change and rearrange you
Till you don't remember what you were (hey, hey)
And it don't even pay to fight
'Cause she don't know wrong from right
She's a 99 pounds (99 pounds)
I said 99 pounds (99 pounds)
She's a 99 pounds of some kind of dynamite

[instrumental]

And well she may look like an angel
But she's made out of TNT (hey, hey)
She's a little bitty baby
Who makes prose in the tea
Yeah but when she holds you tight
She's some kind of outta sight
She's a 99 pounds (99 pounds)
I say 99 pounds (99 pounds)
I say 99 pounds of some kind of dynamite

I say 99 pounds (99 pounds)
I say 99 pounds (99 pounds)
Stick it to the winchers
I say 99 pounds (99 pounds)
