  • I don't know what color your eyes are, baby
    But your hair is long and brown
    Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long
    And you don't come from this town

    My head is full of magic, baby
    And I can't share this with you
    The feel I'm on a cross again, lately
    But there's nothing to do with you

    I'm alive, huh, huh, so alive
    I'm alive, huh, huh so alive

    Your strut makes me crazy
    Makes me see you more clearly
    Oh, baby, now I can see you
    Wish I could stop
    Switch off the clock
    Make it all happen for you

    I'm alive, huh, huh, so alive
    I'm alive, huh, huh so alive

    I don't know what color your eyes are, baby
    But your hair is long and brown
    Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long
    And you don't come from this town

    My head is full of magic, baby
    And I can't share this with you
    The feel I'm on top again, baby
    That's got everything to do with you

    I'm alive, huh, huh, so alive
    I'm alive, huh, huh so alive
