  • It's quite possible that I'm your third man girl
    But it's a fact that I'm the seventh son
    It's quite possible that I'm your third man girl
    But it's a fact that I'm the seventh son
    And right now you could care less about me
    But soon enough you will care, by the time I'm done

    Let's have a ball and a biscuit sugar
    And take our sweet little time about it
    Let's have a ball girl
    And take our sweet little
    Tell everybody in the place to just get out
    And we'll get clean together
    And I'll find me a soap box where I can shout it
    Yeah

    Read it in the newspaper
    Ask your girlfriends and see if they know
    Read it in the newspaper
    Ask your girlfriends and see if they know
    That my strength is ten fold girl
    I'll let you see if you want to before you go

    Let's have a ball and a biscuit sugar
    And take our sweet little time about it
    Let's have a ball
    And take our sweet little time about it
    Tell everybody in the place to just get out
    And we'll get clean together
    And I'll find my a soap box where I can shout it
    And I can think of one or two things to say
    About it
    Alright, listen

    Alright, you get the put now

    It's quite possible that I'm your third man girl
    But it's a fact that I'm the seventh son
    It was the other two which made me your third
    But it was my mother who made me the seventh son
    And right now you could care less about me
    But soon enough you will care by the time I'm done

  • Maryann from Liverpool NyAwesome song
  • Josh from Houston, TxYou can Youtube "Jack White Interviews" and actually take a tour of the studio and see the very microphone he was talking about.
  • Alden from Asheville, NcFor a number of years now, if asked my favorite song or music, it has been invariably The White Stripes or one of their songs. I've said for just as long that Jack is the new Bob. I'm consistently astounded by the raw talent, and creativity of this duo. Thank you Jack, for the gift of your music.
  • Mike from Bloomington, IlThere are few modern guitarists on a level with White (Morello and Homme being a couple). His blues influenced style is so different than the same old formula music being put out today.
  • Tadi from Mitrovica, Ali listen 60's and 70's rock music, and the white stripes is the only band of these days that i enjoy listening. ball and biscuit is one of my favorite song, and my favorite of all is catch hell blues
  • Keri from Dahlonega , GaI absolutely love Jack's more blues influenced songs. My favorite is catch hell blues, it has awesome riffs.
  • Ziggy from HellThis is like the Blues for a new generation. I applaud Jack White for this song, it's brilliant.
  • Michelle from Elkridge, MdJack White somewhat recently performed the song with Bob Dylan on stage and this fact can be cited in the Bob Dylan song guide book "Keys to the Rain".
