She was sitting crossed legged on a hood of a ford Filing down her nails with a emery board Talking to her friends about people they knew And a lot the things that young girls do
When she said you see that guy in the baseball cap I'd like to spend some time with a boy like that Betty said I seen him at the hardware store I think his name is Billy, but I'm not sure
And as they talked a little while he passed by She smiled at him he just said "hi" He was thinking to him self as he walked away Man I'd like to find a girl like her someday
[Chorus] Young love, strong love, true love It's a new love Their gonna make it through the hard times Walk those lines yeah these ties will bind Young love
We'll she just couldn't stop her self from thinking about him And at a store downtown she saw him again She had both hands full He held open the door
Said my name is Billy I've seen you before Can I help you with these Can I give you a ride
Can I take you out on a Saturday night She didn't have to say what she was feeling inside He could see the answer shining in her eyes
Well from that day on You couldn't keep them apart They were side by side, heart to heart Momma cried as Billy slipped the ring on her hand And when the baby was born she was crying again
Well he worked real hard and put some money down On a little old house at the edge of town And that night as he held her he couldn't believe That god had made a girl that he'd never ever leave
She was sitting crossed legged on the hood of a ford Filing down her nails with an emery board

The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
There was a rumor in the Soviet Union that The Beatles had secretly visited the U.S.S.R. and given a private concert for the children of top Communist party members. They believed the song "Back In The U.S.S.R." was written because of the concert. Actually, some fans still believe so.
