Lyrics

Something Else

Look at that
Here she comes
Here comes that girl again
One of the cutest since I don't know when

But she don't notice me when I pass
She goes with all the guys from out of my class
But that can't stop me from thinking to myself
She's sure fine looking, man, she's something else

Look at that
Across the street
There's a car built just for me
To own a car would be a luxury

But right now I can't afford the gas
A brand new convertible is out of my class
But that can't stop me from thinking to myself
That car's fine looking, man, it's something else

Hey, look at that
Just wait and see
Worked hard and saved my dough
I buy that car and then I roll up with Joe

Get me that girl and we go riding around
We look real sharp with the wide top down
I keep on dreaming and thinking to myself
When it all comes true, man, that's something else

Hey, look at that
What's all this?
Never thought I'd do this before
But here I'm a-knocking on her door

My car's out front and it's all mine
It's a '41 job not a '59
I got that girl and I'm thinking to myself
She's sure fine looking, man, she's something else
