She's only a girl
And her voice is peculiar
And her eyes are strange
She's prone to be willful
You try to cheer her up some
But she's impervious to change

She's only a girl
She dresses in black all of the time
Wears an orthopedic shoe
It's some sort of uglification she's into

She's a hundred and ten
Maybe five foot five
She won't eat meat
But she'll eat you alve
She's only a girl
But she's big time

She's only a girl
And I'll tell you about her
At least all that I know
She's from South Carolina
And she came out here
A few years ago

She waits on tables
Works in a bank
Volunteers at the zoo
You can tell she ain't lazy
But she is very young
That's why I called you

Now that you've seen her, what do you think?
Uh-huh
Yeah
Etc...

Love is blind
And deaf as well
But I love this girl
Can't you tell?
She's only a girl
And she loves me

Why would someone
Beautiful as she
Love someone old like me
Maybe it's the money
Jeez, I never thought of that

God damn it
