Lyrics

Born in Louisiana in a town called Franklin
And she was fully matured by the time she reached the age of 10
Mulatto girl, that's what they called her
And mulattos never had no trouble at all with men

And they don't say she was as sweet as honey
'Cause she's 34, 38 and 22 at the tummy

They call her sweet Rhode Island red
Sweet Rhode Island red, sweet Rhode Island red
Sweet Rhode Island red, sweet, cheap, that's what they said
About sweet Rhode Island red

So she tried to live the life they said they wanted her to
She went to church, went to school, never be the white man's fool
And Pastor Sam, and Nathan Jones
They were just too hot headed to leave her alone

And they both said, the girl's as sweet as honey
'Cause she's 34, 38 and 22 at the tummy

They call her sweet Rhode Island red
Sweet Rhode Island red, sweet Rhode Island red
Sweet Rhode Island red, sweet, cheap, that's what they said
About sweet Rhode Island red

Well, she was 17 when she moved down to New Orleans
'Cause living in the city had always been her dream
And people there said it was a shame and a pity
When old man Daley gave her the keys to the city

And he too said she was as sweet as honey
'Cause she's 34, 38 and 22 at the tummy

They call her sweet Rhode Island red
Sweet Rhode Island red, sweet Rhode Island red
Sweet Rhode Island red, sweet, cheap, that's what they said
About sweet Rhode Island red, yeow

34, 38 and 22
Sweet, cheap, that's what they said
About sweet Rhode Island red, yeah
