Looking For A Girl

  • I've been looking for agirl who drinks and smokes
    Who takes a lot of drugs and can take a joke
    Where does this girl of mine hide herself away?
    Whoever she is I hope she's on her way

    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl who knows how to love me

    I've been looking for a girl who is good in bed
    Who knows when it's time to knock it on the head
    I guess it's good lovin' that I want the most
    Someone who turns my bread into buttered toast

    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl who knows how to love me

    I've been looking for a girl won't scream and shout
    When I disappear for weeks like a roustabout
    This kind of good lovin' is hard to find

    The perfect combination of the cruel and kind

    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl who knows how to love me

    I see those couples going streaming by
    Looking so easy like they don't even try
    It's like a magic trick slight of hand
    Sawn in half by a golden band

    I've been looking for a girl easy on the eyes
    But not so fuckin' stupid that I want to cry
    I know god doesn't give with both his hands
    So I guess I just want someone I can stand

    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl
    I've been looking for a girl who knows how to love me Writer/s: ADAM TEDDY THOMPSON
