: My best guess: the songwriter is talking about hallucinating somebody on waking up. Maybe he calls her "gingerlady" just because that sounds exotic; maybe (a farther-out guess) she looks like a cookie, a gingerbread man but female.

: None of this seems obvious to me.

The 'obvious' reference is to a red-haired woman.
