Sunday afternoon

And I ain’t got nowhere to go

So I think I’ll just pick up

My blues guitar and

Play just a little more now

Sit underneath the shade of a big tree

Right across from the café

With sweet ole Bessie Mae

Handing me my beers

Just about every day

I got it made in the shade

And it happens just about everyday

With my blues guitar in my hand underneath the sun

Till the stars come up in the morning

I’ve got it made now

Got it made in the shade alright yeah

I got a sweet old lady

She’s the apple of my eye

I never ever have to worry

About some other guy

She’s got a red dress on

And high heels too

She’ll turn around

And boogaloo for you

Evert time she turns around baby

She makes a livin’ mess right outta you

I got it made in the shade

And it happens just about everyday

With my blues guitar in my hands

With a drink underneath the stars

Till the sun comes up in the mornin’

I got it made now

I got it made in the shade alright yeah

I got it made now

I got it made in the shade alright now that’s right

Now little Bessie Mae

Now she’s about 80 years old

With a black dress on and white pearls

Around her neck now you know

She got her hair done up right

At the salon today

If she sees’s you standin’ there man

Guaranteed to take of you o k

I got it made now in the shade

And it happens just about everyday

With my blues guitar in my hands

With a drink underneath the stars

Till the star in the mornin’ come around now

I got it made now hum

I got it made in the shade alright now

Hum hum that’s right now whoo-whoo

I got it made now

With my number one fan man

Made in the shade that’s right

You know what I’m talking about

I got it made in the shade hum hum

Got it made in the shade now
