"Mystery Girl" as written by and Nicholas Joseph Zinner Karen Lee Orzolek....
It was the struggle of the century
And all the grown men came to see
The girl who tamed the tiger, yeah yeah
The heart of southern lovebirds
They found her under the sea
She said she came from cell block three

The girl hit hot like a barracuda baby
She floated on air like a crest of wave
She was a primal institution
She was a danger to herself, yeah

Mad loving by the cold hearted
Take a big breath
Because we just started

Mystery girl
Mystery girl
Keep on faking your mystery world
Cause the mystery boys
Will be your toys, yeah
Cause the mystery boys
Will be your toys

Not a day goes by I want to disappear
Into her eyes a mother pearl
And my head feels dead
With all this useless fighting
But my heart ain't dead
Cause it keeps on loving

The girl hit hard like a barracuda baby
She floated on air like a crest of wave
She was a primal institution
She was a danger to herself yeah

Mad loving by the cold hearted
Take a big breath
Because we just started

Mystery girl
Mystery girl
Keep on faking your mystery world
Cause the mystery boys
Will be your toys, yeah
Cause the mystery boys
Will be your toys, yeah
There be your toys
There be your toys, alright

    General CommentWell, in an interview she did with "The Advocate," Karen O was asked if the song was about a girl crush, and she responded, "That song wasn’t about a particular girl. When I first started writing songs, the subject (the person I was singing about or to) would be a girl. But there are two types of girls I get crushes on. One is the sort of girl who’s really got it together and who has a sort of boyish look and who’s really got it going on. And then the other is the blond cheerleader type who has like a lip ring or something like that but yet is still just clueless."

    In case you're interested:

    General Commentim trying to date this 'mysterious' girl right now. she has strange emotional prolems, but im saying the chorus " mystery boty will be your toy" it is kindof provoking that if a girl acts mysterious, she can get the mysterious boys. its unrelated to my thing with the girl; dont kno why i mentioned it lol ohhh because im putting it on the mixtape for her :D
