  • Hello, open the door
    Guess who's gonna ring the chimes
    That's right, lend me a paper
    You know I've change you right

    Oh, girl, make it a quick one
    I'm only here tonight
    I know, sadder but wiser
    I'm still the same old guy

    Take a look at me
    See, I couldn't look no better
    Girl, I'm at my peak
    And that's a fact, that's a fact

    Take a part of me
    You know it couldn't feel no better
    Take it all with ease
    Before you break your back
    Or get a heart attack

    I'm a wonderful thing, baby
    Such a, such a
    (Wonderful)
    I'm a wonderful thing, baby
    Such a, such a

    Goodbye, sorry I can't stay
    But I don't have my style
    I've got a dozen or more babes
    To see before I fly

    Hot stuff, beggin' to see me
    Why should they really pry?
    Come on, give me your blessin'
    You're still the first in line

    Take a look at me
    See, I couldn't look no better
    Girl, I'm at my peak
    And that's a fact, that's a fact

    Take a part of me
    You know it couldn't feel no better
    Be sure that you breathe
    Before you break your back
    Or get a heart attack

    I'm a wonderful thing, baby
    Such a, such a
    (Wonderful)
    I'm a wonderful thing, baby, baby
    (Wonderful)

    I'm a wonderful thing, baby
    Such a, such a, such a wonderful thing

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute
    Okay, alright, go home
    Let's just, let's just start with the A's
    I just want you to show you something
    Just start with the A's, alright?

    Now Aida, right? Anna, right?
    Anita, Anita too
    Abby, you remember Abby
    Abby, this is Abby, Abby Long

    Abby Long, I'm goin' up, eh
    Something Boulevard, hey, hey
    You remember Abby, no? Right

    And there's, eh, Amanda, Amanda Blue
    Amanda Blue, hi, Amanda
    How many is that? I ain't countin' no more
    There's, eh, Sophie

    Ho-hold it, ho, ho, ho
    Who is Sophie?
    Why don't you talk about the A's?
    (I'm a wonderful thing, baby)

    Hold it, hold it, hold it
    (I'm a wonderful thing, baby)
    Vincent, are you ready for some more B's?
    Hahaha

    (I'm a wonderful thing, baby)
    B's, there's Bonnie, Becca
