Opelousas (Williams Victoria)

She's cruising the streets Making damn sure she don't run into that old man Around him she hardly ever speaks She slips into an old retreat I saw her strutting in a dress That was lucky last week Keeping an eye out for a shady Who's holding something sweet Some sweet relief Some find it in a bathtub Or a back rub The clothes they wear or just in the air In the food they eat, it's something sweet Some sweet relief Now Opelousas is a dim-lit town by night But the people down there They sure know how to live right Why, they dance by the moon They give a party for a fight They got that look in their eyes says They're holding something sweet Some sweet relief It's in a handshake or a lucky break In a bottle of wine or just losing some time It's in the road you meet, oh It's something sweet Some sweet relief Now you tell me you got some I hope that's true But you want some assurance You'll never be blue It's in a boat ride On the holy side It's at the five and ten It's everywhere you've ever been It's in the very words you speak It's something sweet Some sweet relief
