(Lennon & McCartney)

Is there anybody going to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay
She's the kind of girl
you want so much it make you sorry
Still you don't regret a single day
Ah, girl, Girl, Girl

When I think of all the times
I tried to hard to leave her
She will turn to me and start to cry
And she promises the earth to me
and I believe her
After all this time I don't know why
Ah, girl, girl, girl

She's the kind of girl who puts you down
When friends are there
You feel a fool (tit, tit, tit. tit. tit.tit, tit, tit, tit.tit, tit, tit)
When you say she's looking good (tit.tit, tit, tit, tit.tit, tit, tit)
She acts as if it's understood (tit.tit, tit, tit, tit.tit, tit, tit)
she's cool, ooh, oo, oo, oo (tit.tit, tit, tit, tit, tit)
Girl, girl, girl

Was she told when she was young
that pain would lead to pleasure
Did she understand it when they said
That a man must break his back
to earn his day of leisure?
Will she still believe it when he's dead
Ah, girl, girl, girl
