Stray Cats – Somethin' Else lyrics

Hey lookee there. Here she comes
Here comes that girl again.
Wanted to date her since I don't know when
But she don't notice me when I pass,
She goes with other guys that are outta my class
But that can't stop me from a-thinkin' to myself
She's sure fine lookin' man, uh.
She's somethin' else

Hey lookee there across the street
There's a car made just for me
To own a car would be a luxury.
But right now I can't afford the gas.
A brand new convertible is outta my class.
But that can't stop me from a-thinkin' to myself,
That car's fine lookin' man, uh, it's somethin' else.

Hey lookit here, just wait and see
Work hard and save my dough
I've got the car that I've been wantin' so
Get me the girl we'll go ridin' around
We'll look real sharp with the white top down
I'll keep right on a-dreamin' and a-thinkin' to myself
When it all comes true man, wow! That's somethin' else

Hey lookit here, what's all this?
Never thought I'd do this before
Here I am knockin' down your door
My car's out front and baby it's all mine
A '41 Ford not a '59.
I got that gal and I'm a-thinkin' to myself
She's sure fine lookin' man, wow! She's somethin' else
