Sophisticated Lady
Elli Medeiros Lyrics


Sophisticated lady tryin' to change my ways
Just because you're caught in your social maze
I think it's 'bout time that you realize
Your money and your power's got you mesmerized

Pretty lady, get back
Pretty lady, yea
Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

Educated lady with your college degree
Amazes me why you just can't see
Learned everything from your books on the shelf
But no one ever taught you how to think for yourself

Pretty lady, get back
Pretty lady, yea, sweet thing
Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

Sophisticated lady take a lesson from me
I can help you be what you want to be
Together we'll see many brighter days
If it takes forever, gonna change your ways

Pretty lady, get back
Pretty lady, yea, sweet thing
Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

Sophisticated lady put your blue jeans on
You're anybody's baby when your mama's gone

This is my all time favorite version of this song! Elli Medeiros may not be a "serious" jazz singer, but even if this performance is a one-off accident it's still an absolute delight. It's sort of a modern "Darlene Edwards" version of the great classic, and the first time I heard it I had to pull off the road because I was laughing so hard, and how often does one do that for a tired 80 year-old song? The percussion effects are truly inspired, and the whole band "Come on, fellas!" is a treat.
