About A Girl Lyrics
I need an easy friend
I do ... with an ear to lend
I don't think you fit this shoe
I do ... won't you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night for free
I do

I'm standing in your line
I do ... hope you have the time
I do ... pick a number too
I do ... keep a date with you

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night for free

I need an easy friend
I do ... with an ear to lend
I do ... think you fit this shoe
I do ... won't you have a clue


I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night [x2]
For free

I do ... [x4]
