  • Your hair's a mess
    You better put on a dress
    And get your feet back on the ground
    You fix your eyes
    For some city guys
    Who wouldn't save you if you drowned
    You hang on Forty-second street
    And do your homework in the bar
    Saint Helen says you're missin' school
    And I'm wond'rin' where you are

    Holyanna
    Holyanna
    Girl, what you do to me
    Holyanna
    Holyanna
    Girl, you're a blue-eyed mystery

    You read your books
    Until nobody looks
    And then you slip out after dark
    You steal my love
    Then say you're sorry
    And do your penance in the park
    You fooled your mother when you skipped ballet
    To paint your face for the midnight show
    And in the morning you knelt beside your bed
    And prayed she'd never know

    Holyanna
    Holyanna
    Girl, what you do to me
    Holyanna
    Holyanna
    Girl, you're a blue-eyed mystery

    Holyanna
    Holyanna
    Girl, what you do to me
    Holyanna
    Holyanna
    Girl, you're a blue-eyed mystery Writer/s: DAVID PAICH, JEFF PORCARO
