The Shirelles – What Does A Girl Do? lyrics

When a boy meets a girl that he wants to get to know
He just walks right up to her, introduces himself, then he tells her so

But what does a girl do when she meets a boy
Who makes her feel the same way too
Somebody tell me, tell me, tell me
What does a girl do (what does a girl do)

And when a boy meets a girl for the very first time
It's not wrong for him to say darling, I want you to be mine


Now she can't stand on a portico
And whistle when she goes walking by, oh no no
She must hope that he can see
The lovin' light burnin' in her eyes, oh yeah yeah
She can't ask him to let her walk him home, oh no
Nor can she ask him for the number
The number on his telephone, oh no I

When a boy meets a girl, yeah, that he wants for the rest of his life
He just walks right up to her and says darling, please be my wife


(Repeat and fade)
Somebody tell me, tell me, tell me
What does a girl do (what does a girl do)
