"Hey Girl (live)" as written by and Gerry/king Goffin....
I took this girl out last night and we left around 12,
We walked along lonely streets and got to know ourselves,
I like to read, she likes to write,
She likes to sleep, and I love to stay up all night,
My friends say I'm crazy and I agree,
But that's okay that's the way I like to be

Hey girl, come with me and let yourself go
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go

We went out late that night and we danced through the night
I was holding on to her and she be gripping it tight, she was
But she didn't care, I didn't mind
I was unaware that she liked to act so kind,
My friends say I'm crazy and I agree,
But that's okay that's the way I like to be

Hey girl, come with me and let yourself go (C'mon, c'mon)
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go (Just let yourself go)

Hush little baby don't say a word
I'd like to give you everything that you deserve.
I'll give you my heart, give you all my soul.
You can ask for my money, if you like you can have control.
In my mind, I miss you every night that you're not here.
Oh, I just want to sit around your life and breathe your air.
And if I cannot have you, I just don't want to live.
Oh I've got so much I'd like to give.

Hey girl, come with me and let yourself go (C'mon, c'mon)
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go (Just let yourself go)

My baby, my darling
Just let yourself go
My baby, my darling
I need to know
My sweetie, my lovely
I'd love to let you go
But I'm coming back for you, and I'm walking to your door.

    General CommentOh man... that section where it starts out "hush my little baby, don't you say a word..." breaks my heart... if anyone ever wanted to make me fall in love, that is all they'd ever have to say.

    I love this band... I'm so glad that people are finally starting to recognize them.

    General CommentI love the way that the last verse thingie means excatly the opposite of the origional song... the origional seems like typical frat boy/booty call situation (just sounds better cuz everything out of Marcs mouth just sounds better) and this version is probably the most touching and moving and emotional and sweet things i have ever heard...
