Doo-da-lang' scat singing over first 2 lines):
Well well, I once believed all fellas were nice
But girls, listen to me, take my advice
Girls, you'd better get yourselves onto my track
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)
(X2): (She-doop, she-doop, la la)

Girls, those fellas are sly, slick & shy
So don't you ever let 'em get you starry-eyed
Well, you may think their love is true
But they'll walk right over you
Now girls, you should know these things right off the back
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)
(X2): (She-doop, she-doop, la la)

(Instrumental)

Now girls, I say I'm tellin' you the natural facts
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)

I'm tellin' you, girls, you'd better look before you leap
Still water sometimes runs very deep
You'll be sorry when you just jump
& do justice passed by love
Girls, you should know these things right off the back
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)

I say you'd better take heed (needle in a haystack)
Listen to me (needle in a haystack)
('she-doop' scat singing over next 4 lines):
You'd better play hard to get
Or you're gonna regret
The day you were born, girl
When he leaves you alone, girl
Good guys are like findin' a (needle in a haystack)
Girls, they're like findin' a (needle in a haystack)

    It's not so much a meaning but your feet that explain the meaning to othese lyrics. Watch any true northern soul dancer and the song lyric will become clear. Its all in the feet.

    did you know that every night before you go to sleep there is one person of the opposite sex thinking of you. They want to kiss you, they want to be with you, they are always thinking about you, this is all true and not fake. If you repost this in 5 min the person that is longing to be with you will approach you within one month and ask you out or grab you and kiss you. but if you break this chain no one will like you or ask you out again for like 5 years...
    advice...
    WHEN SHE SAYS YOU ARE CRAZY/WEIRD
    -SHE IS REALLY CRAZY ABOUT YOU!
    WHEN SHE ACTS SHY
    -SAY I LOVE YOU
    WHEN SHE RUNS AWAY FROM YOU
    - CHASE HER
    WHEN SHE PUTS HER FACE NEAR YOURS
    - KISS HER
    WHEN SHE KICKS & PUNCHES
    - HOLD HER TIGHT
    WHEN SHE IS SILENT
    - SHE'S THINKIN OF HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU
    WHEN SHE IGNORES YOU
    - SHE WANTS ALL YOUR ATTENTION!
    WHEN SHE PULLS AWAY
    - GRAB HER BY THE WAIST AND NEVER LET GO
    WHEN YOU SEE HER AT HER WORST
    - TELL HER SHE'S BEAUTIFUL
    WHEN SHE SCREAMS AT YOU
    - TELL HER YOU LOVE HER BUT MEAN IT!!
    WHEN YOU SEE HER WALKING
    -SNEAK UP BEHIND HER GRAB HER BY THE WAIST AND GIVE HER A KISS
    WHEN SHE'S SCARED!!!
    -HOLD HER AND TELL HER EVERYTHING WILL BE OK CAUSE SHE'S WITH YOU
    WHEN SHE LOOKS LIKE SOMETHINGS THE MATTER
    - KISS HER AND TELL HER NOT TO WORRY
    WHILE SHE HOLDS YOUR HAND
    - PLAY WITH HER FINGERS
    WHEN SHE SAYS SHES COLD
    -SHE WANTS YOU TO HOLD HER TIGHT
