Garfunkel & Oates – One Night Stand lyrics
I never do this ever
It's not what shy girls do
But something in your eyes
Drew me closer to you

Do you feel the spark between us?
Sometimes you just can tell
I feel our two souls touching
Like I know you
Really well, really well, really well (really well)

This might be strange to tell you
And I swear I'm not a whore
But there are 206 bones in my body
And I'd really like
One more, one more, one more (one more)

I'm like Fred Flintstone, I make your bed rock
You're like a parking ticket, so fine
Jean-Claude Van damn, you're s***
Let's get horizontal and combine
'Cause you're fine, you're so fine
Oh, baby, you're so fine
You're so fine you blow my mind (hey)
You can call me coffee bean 'cause I know just how to
Grind (hey)
Your right leg's Thanksgiving, your left is Christmas
Gonna visit in between the holidays
Energizer bunny keeps going and going
We've struck up a match and I set you ablaze
'Cause you're fine, you're so fine
Oh, baby, you're so fine
You're so fine you blow my mind (hey)
You can call me coffee bean 'cause I know just how to
Grind (hey, hey)

Shoot, look at the time
Gotta go, this has been fun, hey
Lots to do in the morning, gotta help my friend move

Gotta do my taxes, gotta check my email
Plus it's Arbor Day (hey)
Where the hell did I put my bra?
Oh, hey

Wait, what, you think we're dating?
However could that be?
We just had s** and it meant nothing at all
To me, to me, to me (to me)

How could we be dating if we never held hands?
We held on to the bedposts but we never held hands
You got inside my body but you didn't reach my heart
We raced right to the finish but I guessed we missed
The start
There's no way we're dating 'cause we never held hands

How could we be dating if you never took me out?
No whisper of sweet nothings
You just made me scream and shout, ooh
There was no love ambition but you taught me new
Positions on the way
The Jackson Pollock, The Praying Mantis, The Moon
You may know my body but you don't know my soul
You want the doughnut but all you're going to get is
The hole

Listen, babe, I'll call you
And probably real soon
But I lost my cell and I'll be out of town 'til June
I guess I didn't mention
My band's going on tour
But I'll be super busy
Otherwise we'd date
For sure (x22)
'Cause it was so great
