"Centerfold" as written by Luigi Ricco and Philippe / Escano....
Does she walk? Does she talk?
Does she come complete?
My homeroom homeroom angel
Always pulled me from my seat

She was pure like snowflakes
No one could ever stain
The memory of my angel
Could never cause me pain

Years go by I'm lookin' through a girly magazine
And there's my homeroom angel on the pages in-between

[Chorus: x2]
My blood runs cold
My memory has just been sold
My angel is the centerfold
Angel is the centerfold

Slipped me notes under the desk
While I was thinkin' about her dress
I was shy I turned away
Before she caught my eye

I was shakin' in my shoes
Whenever she flashed those baby-blues
Something had a hold on me
When angel passed close by

Those soft and fuzzy sweaters
Too magical to touch
Too see her in that negligee
Is really just too much

[Chorus]

It's okay I understand
This ain't no never-never land
I hope that when this issue's gone
I'll see you when your clothes are on

Take you car, Yes we will
We'll take your car and drive it
We'll take it to a motel room
And take 'em off in private

A part of me has just been ripped
The pages from my mind are stripped
Oh no, I can't deny it
Oh yea, I guess I gotta buy it!

[Chorus]

    General CommentGreat song. I agree. One of my favorites by J. Geils Band.. They got great rythems in their music, very genious as well, musically. Excellent lyrics too.

    Specifically about this song, I wonder if it's true. It'd be funny if it was. Imagine seeing a girl you know in a playboy or something? A girl who I went to school with, I found a photo of her with her pants down, with two other girls.

    My InterpretationThe song is about him finding his girlfriend (or a girl he has a crush on) in one of his "girly magazines" (playboy) and now when he sees her, he can only picture her as she was in his magazine.
