"A Girl Like You" as written by and Edwyn Stephen Collins....
I've never known a girl like you before
Now just like in a song from days of yore
Here you come a-knockin', knockin' on my door
And I've never met a girl like you before

You give me just a taste, so I want more
Now my hands are bleeding and my knees are raw
'Cause now you've got me crawlin', crawlin' on the floor
And I've never known a girl like you before

You've made me acknowledge the devil in me
I hope to God I'm talkin' metaphorically
Hope that I'm talkin' allegorically
Know that I'm talkin' about the way I feel

And I've never known a girl like you before
Never, never, never, never
Never known a girl like you before

This old town's changed so much
Don't feel that I belong
Too many protest singers, not enough protest songs
And now you've come along, yes, you've come along
And I never met a girl like you before

It's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
Yeah, it's all right
