Funkadelic – That Was My Girl lyrics

That was my girl
If the girl displayed a smile
That always drove the fellas wild
That was my girl (that was my girl)
If your composure sort of slips
The moment that you saw her lips
That was my girl (that was my girl)
Unlike a deck of cards where there's four of a kind
There's only one of her and she's all mine
If the sight of her brightens your world
Then it had to be nobody (had to be nobody)
It had to be no one (had to be no one)
It just had to be none other (had to be none other)
My girl (my girl)
that was my girl
She would casually strolling by
As rare as a mink with yellow fur
You'll find one of them before you find one of her
She's the only kind like her in the world
Talkin' bout nobody (talkin' bout nobody)
Said I'm speakin' of no one (speakin' of no one)
I'm just rappin' 'bout nobody (rappin' 'bout nobody)
But my girl (my girl)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Talkin' 'bout my girl (whoo-hoo-hoo)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Talkin' 'bout my girl
If beautiful
