  • Who's that lady (who's that lady)
    Beautiful lady (who's that lady)
    Lovely lady (who's that lady)
    Real fine lady (who's that lady)

    Hear me calling out to you
    Cause that's all that I can do
    Your eyes tell me to pursue
    But you say "Look yeah, but don't touch, baby"
    Nah, nah, nah don't touch

    Who's that lady (who's that lady)
    Sexy lady (who's that lady)
    Beautiful lady (who's that lady)
    Real fine lady (who's that lady)

    I would dance upon a string
    Any gift she'd want I'd bring
    I would give her anything
    If she would just do what I say
    Come 'round my way, baby
    Shine my way

    Who's that lady (who's that lady)
    Beautiful lady (who's that lady)
    Lovely lady (who's that lady)
    Real real fine lady (who's that lady)

    I would love to take her home
    But her heart is made of stone
    Gotta keep on keepin' on
    If I don't she'll do me wrong
    Do me wrong, yeah Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER H JASPER, ERNIE ISLEY, MARVIN ISLEY, O'KELLY ISLEY, RONALD ISLEY, RUDOLPH ISLEY

  • Joyce from PaWithout a doubt, 1 of the best since 1973...ever retaining sheer unique guitar, vocals set. Will never age, and will be played at my funeral for sure. My all time favorite for 45 yrs.
  • Joyce from PaOne of the greatest guitar pieces and songs ever!
  • Markantney from Biloxi, MsTo Piggyback everyone else's "Guitar" Theme, Ernie's playing is so great you almost forget how great the vocals, percussions, and arrangement of the song are.

    I remember as a Kid reading the "Jet" Magazine's Top 20 Records every week waiting-hoping for it to make it to #1.

    I love Marvin Gaye and own most of his catalog but "Let's Get It On" is about the only hit of his I don't like as much as everyone else. Maybe I was too young at the time to appreciate it and it kept my "Who's That Lady" from it's rightful place at the top of the Charts:):):)
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn July 8th 1973, "That Lady - Part One" by the Isley Brothers entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #89; and on September 30th, 1973 it peaked at #6 (for 3 weeks) and spent 20 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #2 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart...
    The 2 weeks it was at #2 on the Hot R&B Singles chart, the #1 record for both those weeks was "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye...
    Between 1959 and 2003 the brothers had forty-two Top 100 records, with four making the Top 10; and their biggest hit was "It's Your Thing", it peaked at #2 (for 1 week) on April 27th, 1969...
    The week "It's Your Thing" was at #2 on the Top 100, the #1 record was "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In" by the 5th Dimension.
  • James from Gettysburg, PaThe funkiest song I had ever heard in my life. I had heard it before in a movie, but one day I was shopping in a dollar store with my daughter. "That Lady" played over the store's music system and for the life of me, I had never heard anything so cool in my life. The waa-waa guitar just seemed to go on forever, which was just fine with me.
  • Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScNo wonder the guitar solos sound remoniscent of Jimi Hencricks. That's one of the things I thought when I first heaard this.
  • Scott from Chicago, Ilone of the greatest guitar solos to reach the top 40 in single form........so fuzzed out,
    funky, just plain wicked....
