Oooh, Oooh, flip-flop girl,
She's been living in her flip-flop world
I bet she never had a backstreet guy
I bet her momma never told her why

I'm gonna try for an flip-flop girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a lolipop man
That's what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an flip-flop girl
You know I've seen her in her flip-flop worlds
She's getting tired of her flip-flop toys
And all her presents from her flip-flop boys
She's got a choice

Oooh, Oooh

Flip-flop girl
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win

And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love
With an flip-flop girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a lolipop man
That's what I am

Oooh, Oooh

Flip-flop girl
She's my flip-flop girl
You know I'm in love
With an flip-flop girl
My flip-flop girl
You know I'm in love
With an flip-flop girl
My flip-flop girl
You know I'm in love
With an flip-flop girl
My flip-flop girl
(fading)
You know I'm in love
With an flip-flop girl
My flip-flop girl
