Girl

Is there anybody going to listen to my story,
All about the girl who came to stay,
She's the kind of girl you want so much it makes you sorry,
Still you son't regret a single day.
Ah, Girl, (oothss) Girl, Girl.

When I think of all the times I tried so hard to leave her,
She will turn to me and start to cry,
And she promises the earth to me and I believe her,
After all this time I don't know why.
Ah, Girl, (oothss) Girl, Girl.

She's the kind of girl who puts you down,
When friends are there, you feel a fool.
(Tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu)
When you say she's looking good,
She acts as if it's understood,
She's cool, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Girl, (oothss) Girl, Girl.

Was she told when she was young that pain would lead to pleasu-re,
Did she understand it when they said,
That a man must break his back to earn his day of leasure,
Will she still believe it when he's dead.
Ah, Girl, (oothss) Girl, Girl.
Ah, Girl, (oothss) .....


Αυτό ήταν για το κορίτσι των ονείρων. Όταν ο Paul και εγώ γράφαμε στίχους τις παλιές μέρες, συνηθίζαμε να γελάμε γι' αυτό, όπως θα γελούσαν οι άνθρωποι στην Tin Pan Alley. Και ήταν μόνο αργότερα, πού προσπαθήσαμε να ταιριάξουμε τους στίχους στον τόνο. Μ' αρέσει αυτό. Είναι από τα καλύτερα μου.
