about

Country, Bluesy, Jazzy, this is a song about a girl like "Stupefyin' Jones," who is so sultry, she causes chaos in her wake. The lyrics, and the song, are both meant in fun.

lyrics

When you go walking down the street,
Men whistle; Cars beep.
They can’t believe the thing they saw;
You oughta be against the law.

Dark eyes of mystery;
The latest style on your feet.
The right curves, but lean and mean
On everything that’s in-between.

Women envy; men fall—
You oughta be against the law.

Yeah, women envy; men fall—
You oughta be against the law.

Ya know, it’s the strangest thing,
but you don’t know anything
‘bout the chaos you leave in your wake;
‘bout the many hearts you break.

I guess it’s not your fault;
You’re just made that way, after all…
And if there were a law against you,
I would just have to break it;
I just couldn’t take it

Ya know, it’s the strangest thing,
but you don’t know anything
‘bout the chaos you leave in your wake;
‘bout the many hearts you break.

I guess it’s not your fault;
You’re just made that way, after all…
And if there were a law against you,
I would just have to break it;
I just couldn’t take it!

Your kinda smart your kind of tough,
And if that were not enough,
You got some “wise”;
You got some “wild”;
You got some “Devil” in your smile.

You knock me out and that’s not all;
You oughta be against the law.

You oughta be against the law.
You oughta be against the law.
Mmmmmm… mmm… mmm…
You oughta be against the law…

Hahaha…
