Girls Got Rhythm

Album: Highway To Hell (1979)
  • I've been around the world
    I've seen a million girls
    Ain't one of them got
    What my lady she's got

    She's stealin' the spotlight
    Knocks me off my feet
    She's enough to start a landslide
    Just a walkin' down the street

    Wearing dresses so tight
    And looking dynamite
    Enough to blow me out
    No doubt about it can't live without it

    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    She's got the backseat rhythm (backseat rhythm)
    The girl's got rhythm

    She's like a lethal brand
    Too much for any man
    She gives me first degree
    She really satisfies me

    Love me till I'm legless
    Aching and sore
    Enough to stop a freight train
    Or start the Third World War

    You know I'm losin' sleep
    I'm in too deep
    Like a body needs blood
    No doubt about it, can't live without it

    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    She's got the backseat rhythm (backseat rhythm)
    The girl's got rhythm

    You know she moves like sin
    And when she lets me in
    It's like liquid love
    No doubt about it, can't live without it

    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    She's got the backseat rhythm (backseat rhythm)
    The girl's got rhythm (girl's got rhythm)

    You know she really got the rhythm (girl's got rhythm)
    She's got the backseat rhythm (backseat rhythm)
    Rock 'n' roll rhythm (rock n roll rhythm)

  • Keg from EarthGreat youthful song. Could be wrong, but Back seat rhythm = sex in a car which is how a lot of learned it.
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceThere is not a whole lot of deep meaning here, just girls having the right rhythm in their hips. This song appropriately features a wonderful hip grinding rhythm, with a guitar rhythm that is really simple and also very catchy.
