  • I was down on the east side
    On a block with no name
    When I walked in a movie
    You were blue, I was game
    Tell me, did you love it, baby?
    Did you think your smile looked right?
    Tell me when you came together
    Was it in your mind 'cause it sure wasn't out of sight

    Didn't know when I entered
    Second seat, second row
    It was then that I saw you
    But your mouth stole the show

    Tell me, did you love it, baby?
    Did you think your smile looked right?
    Tell me when you came together
    Was it in your mind 'cause it sure wasn't out of sight

    Got your name, got your number
    Got your form on the line
    I don't know who you're under
    But I know it ain't mine

    Tell me, did you love it, baby?
    Did you think your smile looked right?
    Tell me when you came together
    Was it in your mind 'cause it sure wasn't out of sight Writer/s: JOHN LEES
