  • That girl thinks that she's so fine
    That soon she'll have my mind
    That girl thinks that she's so smart
    That soon she'll have my heart
    She thinks in no time flat
    That she'll be free and clear to start
    With her emotional rescued love
    That you'll leave torn apart

    That girl thinks that she's so bad
    She'll change my tears to joy from sad
    She says she keeps the upper hand
    'Cause she can please her man
    She doesn't use her love to make him weak
    She uses love to keep him strong
    And inside me there's no room for doubt
    That it won't be too long
    Before I tell her

    That I love her, that I want her
    That my mind, soul and body need her
    Tell her that I'd love to
    That I want to
    That I need to do
    All that I have to, to win her love
    I've been hurting for a long time
    And you've been playing for a long time
    You know it's true
    I've been holding for a long time
    And you've been running for a long time
    It's time to do what we have to do

    That girl
    That girl yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    That girl knows every single man
    Would ask her for her hand
    But she says her love is much too deep
    For them to understand
    She says her love has been crying out
    But her lover hasn't heard
    But what she doesn't realize is that
    I've listened to every word
    That's why I know I'll tell her

    That I love her, that I want her
    That my mind, soul and body needs her
    Tell her that I'd love to
    That I want to
    That I need to do
    All that I have to, to win her love

    Tell her I love her, that I want her
    That my mind, soul and body needs her
    Tell her that I'd love to
    That I want to
    That I need to do
    All that I have to, to win her love

    Tell I love her, that I want her
    That my mind, soul and body needs her
    Tell her that I'd love to
    That I want to
    That I need to do
    All that I have to, to win her love

    That I love her, that I want her
    That my mind, soul and body needs her
    Tell her that I'd love to
    That I want to
    That I need to do
    All that I have to, to win her love

    That girl, that girl, that girl
    Oh, that girl, that girl, that girl Writer/s: Stevie Wonder
