  • I bet you're from out West somewhere
    Hazel eyes and dark brown hair
    And everything you wear fits you just right
    I bet you drink martinis dry
    And never let him see you cry
    Oh, I bet you're more promiscuous than I

    I bet you're bold, I bet that's why
    You seem to occupy his mind
    I bet you're smart
    But do you know about me?

    Is it me? Is it you?
    Tell me who
    Who's the other girl?
    Who's the first? Who's the fool?
    Who's the diamond? Who's the pearl?
    Are you mad? Me too
    And I wonder in his world
    Is it me? Is it you?
    Who's the other girl?

    Who's gonna put on the red dress?
    Scarlet letter on her chest
    Can't love with this on her conscience
    Tell me who's the other girl
    Who's the other girl?

    Oh, are you the one he's talkin' to
    When he gets up and leaves the room
    And comes back with a distance in his eyes?
    Maybe I should be the one to leave
    But damn, when he starts lovin' me
    He makes me think I'm all that's on his mind

    Is it me? Is it you?
    Tell me who
    Who's the other girl?
    Who's the first? Who's the fool?
    Who's the diamond? Who's the pearl?
    Are you mad? Me too
    And I wonder in his world
    Is it me? Is it you?
    Who's the other girl?

    Who's gonna put on the red dress?
    Scarlet letter on her chest
    Can't love with this on her conscience
    Tell me who's the other girl
    Who's the other girl? Oh

    Yeah, I bet you're cool, I bet that's why
    You seem to occupy his time
    I bet by now
    You know about me

    Is it me? Is it you?
    Tell me who
    Who's the other girl?
    Who's the first? Who's the fool?
    Who's the diamond? Who's the pearl?
    Are you mad? Me too
    And I wonder in his world
    Is it me? Is it you?
    Oh, who's the other girl?

    Who's gonna put on the red dress?
    Scarlet letter on her chest
    Can't love with this on her conscience
    Tell me who's the other girl
    Oh, who's the other girl? Mm
