But what they really wanna' know
Is are you gonna' stay?
You've seen so many girls.
I was passing through your way.

Well you're a guy and I'm a doll.
Huckster lad
Will you keep me in your mind
I can hear me in your sigh.

But lover, I recall a faint melody
of when you turned your back
and I had to scream,

"We were falling in love." Oh, no. Oh, no.
"We were falling in love." Oh, no. Oh, no.

But what I really wanna' say
is I dreamt as if I lived
such a complex day
but then I lived and died today.

But lover, I recall a faint history
of when I dropped my back
and you had to scream,

"We were falling in love." Oh, no. Oh, no.
"We were falling in love." Oh, no. Oh, no.

One, two, one, two, three
I'm in love. I'm in love.
I said to him, "What do you do
when everything you heard was true?"
I said to him, "What do you do
when everything you heard was true?"

Daddy, am I a nice girl for making him cry?
Daddy, am I a nice girl for making him cry?

In love, oh no. Oh, no.
We were falling in love.
Oh, no. Oh, no.

    General CommentI have no idea what its about, maybe a realtionship going bad? Anyone there's some errors withe lyrics. According to the liner notes this is how the first two paragraphs should go. The fixed lyrics are in CAPS

    But what they really wanna' know
    Is are you gonna' STAY?
    You've seen so many girls.
    I was passing through your way.

    Well you're a guy and I'm a doll.
    Huckster lad
    WILL YOU KEEP ME IN YOUR MIND.
    I can hear ME in your sigh.

    General CommentI think is about a relationship that has reached it's end. It appears that the guy was caught cheating with several girls. It also appears that she was a jealous and/or difficult girl friend. Then by the end of the song, the girl gets even by cheating on him as well.

    I wonder if this song could be about an experience Nina had???
