They call her Hardhearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Leather is tough, but Hannah’s heart is tougher
She’s a gal who likes to see men suffer

To tease them and thrill them
To torture and kill them
Is her delight, they say
I saw her at the seashore with a great big pan
There was Hannah, pouring water on a drowning man

That’s Hardhearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah, GA

They call her hard-hearted Hannah,
The Vamp of Savannah
The meanest gal in town
Talk of your cold, refrigerating mamas;
Brother, she’s the polar bear’s pajamas

To tease 'em and thrill 'em
To torture and kill them
Is her delight, they say
An evening spent with Hannah sitting on your knees
Is like being in Alaska in your BVDs

That’s why Hardhearted Hannah
The Vamp of Savannah, GA
