"Back Street Girl" as written by Jackie De Shannon and Shari K Sheeley....
Here I stand on the corner for the 100th time
I must be crazy, must be losing my mind
he belongs to somebody else
but I love him so much I just can't help myself

A few more minutes and he'll be here
my life begins when he holds me near
I know that it's wrong, I meet him secretly
but I can't let him go, he's such a part of me

Back street girl you'll never wear his name (oh no)
Back street girl his love is bringing you shame (I don't wanna hear it)
Back street girl why don't you let him be
He's wrecking your life and you'll never be free

Why couldn't I have met him first, why must it be my fate
to have to hide my love for him because it came too late
he belongs to somebody else
but I love him so much I just can't help myself

Back street girl you'll never wear his name (oh stop it now)
Back street girl his love is bringing you shame (I love him anyhow)
Back street girl why don't you let him be
He's wrecking your life and you'll never be free

Back street girl you'll never wear his name (oh please don't say it)
Back street girl his love is bringing you shame (I can't stop loving him)
Back street girl why don't you let him be
He's wrecking your life and you'll never be free

Back street girl you'll never wear his name (oh no)
Back street girl his love is bringing you shame (I don't wanna hear it)
Back street girl why don't you let him be
He's wrecking your life and you'll never be free
