"A Certain Girl" as written by and Allen Toussaint....
There's a certain girl I've been in love with a long, long time
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

I can't reveal her name until she's mine
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

I've tried to make her time and time again
Still we're introduced as nothing but friends
There's a certain girl I've been in love with a long, long time
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

There's a certain chick I've been sweet on since I met her
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

I can't reveal her name until I get her
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

Someday I'm going to wake up and say
I'll do anything just to be your slave
There's a certain girl I've been in love with a long, long time
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

There's a certain girl I've been in love with a long, long time
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

I can't reveal her name until she's mine
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

I've tried to make her time and time again
Still we're introduced as nothing but friends
There's a certain girl I've been in love with a long, long time
What's her name?
I can't tell you
Ahh

    General CommentI love the line "Someday I'm going to wake up and say/I'll do anything just to be your slave"
    What a great bluesy song about unrequited love and hunger for connection in an isolating age
    Great lyrics.
    Great music.
    But of course it is... it's Warren!

    General CommentThis one is not a Warren Zevon creation, this is a cover. Warren was actually covering Clapton, but the song originated much earlier with several different people having been credited as author. Unlike most thing Zevon wrote himself, this one is pretty straight forward.
