"Something So Right" as written by and Paul Simon....
Whoa I got time on my hands tonight
You're the girl of my dreams
When I'm near you my future seems bright

Oh I want you to be my girl
I want you to be my movie
I am Sal Mineo and I need you so
Sweet Bernadette

Whoa you got style from your hair to your heels
Though my words may be jumbled
Still I'm telling you just how it feels

I love you
I love you

And the breeze that wraps around you
Satin summer nights
A girl I can't forget
Whoa you're the smile of the moon Bernadette

Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home
Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home

Wop, wop, wop, wop
Come with me
There's a place I want you to see

When the leaves are dark
I've got a hiding place in central park
And the sky is a coat of diamonds

There's a wooden cross over my bed
The city is lit with candles
They're shining for you Bernadette

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Oo oo, Bernadette

Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home
Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home

Wop, wop, wop, wop, wop

    General CommentHe's been hurt before, so he built a wall. She treats him good and he's beginning to bring down the wall. It's been a long time, but he's beginning to trust and love again.

    General CommentThis song always makes he feel relaxed and good. One of Paul's best songs. Very chill and good to listen to late at night when your gettin baked.

    General CommentOMG, this is my favorite Paul Simon song, it's very peaceful, like you said. Not exactly sure what the meaning is, or maybe I'm just too lazy to try and figure it out, lol.

    General CommentI love this song - especially the chorus. It's about how easy it is to focus on what's wrong - or to just assume the worst - and to question or not trust everything that seems good.
