The late AND great Fred McDowell had a tune called "I Heard Somebody Call," which contained these lyrics at the end:
I got the meanest woman
Lord, that you ever seen
Meanest woman
Lord, I have ever seen

Ask for whiskey
Give me gas, gasoline
Ask for whiskey, and give me
Lord, that the mean, meanest woman
Lord, I ever
Ever seen, Lord.

But with prices being what they are, if he was around today he might be tempted to call her a dog gone queen instead of mean.
