New York Dolls – Something Else lyrics

(E. Cochran/S. Sheeley)

[Originally by Stray Cats]

Hey look a there
Here she comes
Here comes that girl again
Wanted to date her
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 a thinkin' to myself
She's sure fine lookin', man
She's somethin' else

Hey look a there
Across the street
There's car
Meant just for me
To own that 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 a thinkin' to myself
That car's fine lookin', man
It's somethin' else

Hey look a here
Just wait and see
Work hard
And save my dough
I'll buy that car
That I've been wantin' so
Get me that girl
And we'll go ridin' around
We'll look real sharp
With the white top down
I'll keep right on a dreamin'
And a thinkin' to myself
When it all comes true man
Wow, that's somethin' else

Hey, look a here
What's all this
Never thought I'd do this before
But here I am
A knockin' on a door
My car's out front
And it's all mine
Just a '41 Ford
Not a '59
I got that girl
And I'm a thinkin' to myself
She's sure fine lookin', man
Wow, she's somethin' else
