Well it's boy meets girl and it starts a fire
Two hearts burn in pure desire
A candle burns the midnight oil
Lust to love and raise the spoil

Chorus:
When the girl goes down
That's the way I like it, like it, like it, like it
When the wheel goes 'round
Neither one can fight it

Can't fight the lust
Can't find the truth
Ain't nothing you can do
When the girl goes down

Hollywood and Vine on the hundredth floor
All the lies in bed, couldn't take it no more
Now standing on the ledge and faces truth
As she ate 'em up spit 'em out, his time is through

Chorus:
When the girl goes down
That's the way I like it, like it, like it, like it
When the wheel goes 'round
Neither one can fight it

Misery loves company
Nothing you can do
When the girl goes down

Solo

I woke up this morning in the paper read
The Hollywood Police found a young man dead
No name, no face, or known I'd
Just no different than you and me

Now someone arrives in her strange world
And the story goes it's boy meets girl

Chorus:
When the girl goes down
That's the way I like it, like it, like it, like it
When the wheel goes 'round
Neither one can fight it

Chorus:
When the girl goes down
That's the way I like it, like it, like it, like it
When the wheel goes 'round
Neither one can fight it

Can't fight the lust
Can't find the truth
Ain't nothing you can do
