A Girl Like You Lyrics By The Smithereens

    the following tone is a reference tone of 700
    hertz the remainder of the tones are
    recorded at this level with the exception of
    the last tone which is a reference tone at
    operating level

    i used to travel in the shadows
    and i never found the nerve to try to walk up to you
    but now i am a man and i know that there’s no time to waste
    there’s too much to lose
    girl you say anything at all and you know that you can call
    and i’ll be right there for you
    first love heartbreak tough luck big mistake
    what else can you do

    i’ll say anything you want to hear
    i’ll see everything through
    i’ll do anything i have to do
    just to win the love of a girl like you
    a girl like you

    people talk and people stare tell them i don’t really care
    this is the place i should be
    and if they think it’s really strange for a girl like you
    to be in love with someone like me
    i wanna tell them all to go to hell
    that we’re doing very well without them you see
    that’s just the way it is and they will see
    i am yours and you are mine the way it should be

    a girl like you
    a girl like you
    oh yeah


    now if i seem a little wild there’s no holding back
    i’m trying to get a message to you
    i won’t take anything from anyone
    i won’t walk and i won’t run i believe in you
    london washington anywhere you are i’ll run
    together we’ll be
    inside outside got my pride
    i won’t let him take you from me

    a girl like you
    a girl like you
    a girl like you
    a girl like you
    oh yeah
    i’ll say anything i’ll say anything
    i’ll take anything i’ll take anything
    i’ll say anything
    almost anything except goodbye
