The Yardbirds – Respectable lyrics

(Isley / Isley / Isley)
She's so respectable,
She's so respectable,
Tell me, what kind of girl is this?
-- What kind of girl is this?
She's never ever been kissed.
-- What kind of girl?
Rubbidy dub dub dub,
-- What kind of girl is this?
She's never ever been in love,
-- What kind of girl?
She's never been out in the moonlight,
Watching the stars above.

She's so respectable,
Tell me, what kind of girl is this?
-- What kind of girl is this?
She's never ever been on a date.
-- What kind of girl?
What kind of girl is this?
-- What kind of girl is this?
She's never ever been on a date.
-- What kind of girl?
Yes, I'm telling you people,
She's the kind of girl for me.

She's so respectable.

-- Did you love her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!
-- Did you hug her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!
-- Did you squeeze her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!
-- Did you kiss her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!

-- What kind of girl is this?
The kind of girl you just can't resist.
-- What kind of girl is this?
The kind of girl who's never been kissed.
Yeah, I'm telling you people,
She's the kind of girl for me.

-- She's so respectable.
Wow!

She's so respectable,
She is so respectable,
Tell me, what kind of girl is this?
-- What kind of girl is this?
She never, ever, ever been kissed.
-- What kind of girl?
Rubbidy rub dub dub,
-- What kind of girl is this?
She never ever been in love.
-- What kind of girl?
She never been out in the moonlight,
Watching the stars above.

-- She's so respectable,
Tell me, what kind of girl is this?
-- What kind of girl is this?
She never ever been on a date.
-- What kind of girl?
What kind of girl is this?
-- What kind of girl is this?
She never ever been on a date.
-- What kind of girl?
Yes I'm telling you people,
She the kind of girl for me.

She's so respectable.

-- Did you love her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!
-- Did you hug her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!
-- Did you squeeze her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!
-- Did you kiss her?
No, no, no, no, no, no!

-- What kind of girl is this?
The kind of girl you just can't resist.
-- What kind of girl is this?
The kind of girl who's never been kissed.
I'm going down on my knees,
She'll go out with me.

She's so respectable.

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a big fall,
All the king's horses and all the king's men,
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Tell me,
Tell me,
Tell me,
She's so respectable,
Tell me,
Please tell me,
...

She's the kind of girl for me.
