    Bessie Smith and Alberta Hunter
    Two women I'd have loved to know
    Would have loved to be close
    Would have reveled in their flow

    Two hard drinkin
    Hard lovin women
    They didn't give a ****
    Smoked their cigarettes
    Cussed out their man
    I would have loved them as hard as I could
    I would understand

    They could sing the blues
    Burn up some pots
    As both loved to be cookin
    Hearts big, just like them
    Cried like little girls
    When no one was lookin
    Yes, I would understand

    They sang about men
    Jim Crow and Old Black Joe
    Wanting a little sugar in their bowl
    These women knew all about men
    They had them too
    Young and old

    They didn't give a danm
    What the world thought
    Struttin in Chicago
    Diamonds and minks
    Which they bought

    As much as they loved men
    They never needed one
    Their story told in song
    You had to listen closley
    To hear about the fun

    Two great women
    Too much for a man to handle
    But if I was around
    I'll be damned if I wouldn't try
    Finding out how they made men laugh
    And much more intriging
    How they made men cry

    Yeah, Bessie and Alberta
    Make me understand
