Well she was just 17
You know what I mean
And the way she looked
was way beyond compare
So how could I dance with another
And I saw her standin' there

Well she looked at me... and I, I could see
That before too long I'd fall in love with her.
She wouldn't dance with another
I'd I saw her standin' there.

Well, my heart went boom,
When I crossed that room,
And I held her hand in mine

Whoah, we danced through the night,
And we held each other tight,
And before too long I fell in love with her.
Now I'll never dance with another
Since I saw her standing there

    General CommentYeah this sure was originally a Beatles tune. I've never heard the MxPx version, but I'm sure the Beatles' was better...just becuase NO ONE can ever top the Beatles. But I'm sure it's fantastic.

    General Commenti never knew that mxpx did a cover of this song. i used to like mxpx alot, but i'm a huge beatles fan now, and i can only hope that mxpx didn't ruin this great song.

    General CommentI heard this cover a few years back, but it wasn't clear at all, and I can't find a good version anywhere. But from what I heard it wasn't bad, but the Beatles did do better.
