    Ow, she's a brick house
    She's mighty-mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
    She's a brick house
    That lady's stacked and that's a fact
    Ain't holding nothing back
    Ow, she's a brick house
    Well put-together, everybody knows
    This is how the story goes

    She knows she got everything
    That a woman needs to get a man, yeah, yeah
    How can she lose with the stuff she use
    Thirty-six, twenty-four, thirty-six oh what a winning hand

    'Cause she's a brick house
    She's mighty-mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
    She's a brick house
    Ow, that lady stacked and that's a fact
    Ain't holding nothing back
    Ow, she's a brick house

    Yeah, she's the one, the only one, built like an amazon
    The clothes she wears, her sexy ways
    Make an old man wish for younger days, yeah, yeah
    She knows she's built and knows how to please
    Sure enough to knock a strong man to his knees

    'Cause she's a brick house
    Yeah, she's mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
    She's a brick house
    The lady's stacked and that's a fact
    Ain't holding nothing back

    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down now

    Brick house
    Yeah, she's mighty mighty, just lettin' it all hang out
    She's a brick house
    Yeah, she's the one, the only one, built like an amazon, yeah

    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it, shake it
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it down now
    Shake it down, shake it down, shake it

    Ow, a brick house

    unfair to count lionel’s solo stuff against the commodores, because of ‘endless love’. FATALITY

    That would be tough cause Cameo was so dope, but P-Funk had a much bigger imprint on the music world.
    Still gotta love Larry Blackmon and all his "OWWWW"s and "Say What"s.

    Two definitely different acts and you can't forget about that transition time when they put out "She's Strange" "Attack me with your love" and "Single Life", even though the later period was so huge, I still think "Alligator Woman" is one of the most unique songs ever written.

    I think U gotta take them as a whole.

    Gotta love the fashion statements, and anybody that can put "your big behind, it makes me blind" in a song is a great lyricist.
