He Was Really Sayin' Somethin'

Album: The Very Best of the Velvelettes (1964)
Charted: 64
  • I was walkin' down the street
    When this boy started following me
    Though I ignored all the things he said
    He moved me in every way
    With his collar unbuttoned
    By my side he was struttin'

    He was really sayin' somethin'
    Really sayin' somethin'
    (Bop bop soo-be-do-wa)
    (Bop bop soo-be-do-wa)

    He flirted every step of the way
    I could hear every word he'd say
    My resistance was gettin' low
    And my feelings started to show
    My heart started pumpin', blood pressure jumpin'

    He was really sayin' somethin',
    Really sayin' somethin'
    (Bop bop soo-be-do-wa)
    (Bop bop soo-be-do-wa)

    He walked me to my door
    I agreed to see him once more
    Late night it may not be
    But he moved me tremendously
    Though he was bold, my heart he stole
    He was really sayin' somethin',
    Really sayin' somethin'
    (Bop bop soo-be-do-wa)
    (Bop bop soo-be-do-wa)

    He was really sayin' somethin'Writer/s: JR., EDWARD HOLLAND, EDWARD, JR. HOLLAND, NORMAN WHITFIELD, NORMAN J. WHITFIELD, WILLIAM STEVENSON
