Something else
Sharon Sheeley / Bob Cochran - 1959

A look a-there, here she comes.
There 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 all the guys from outta my class.
But that can’t stop me from a-thinkin’ to myself:
She’s sure fine lookin’, man. She’s somethin’ else.

Hey, look a-there, across the street.
There’s a car made just for me.
To own that car would be a luxery.
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. It’s somethin’ else.

Hey, look a-here, just wait and see.
Worked hard and saved my dough.
I’ll buy that car that I been wanting so.
Get me that girl and we’ll go ridin’ around.
We’ll look real sharp with the flight top down.
I keep right on a-dreamin’ and a-thinkin’ to myself:
When it all comes true, man, wow, that’s somethin’ else.

Look a-there, what’s all this?
Never thought I’d do this before
but here I am a-knockin’ on her door.
My car’s out front and it’s all mine.
Just a 41 Ford, not a 59.
I got that girl and I’m a-thinkin’ to myself:
She’s sure fine lookin’, man. Wow, she’s somethin’ else.
