"Hey Girl" as written by and Gerry/king Goffin....
I took this girl out last night and we left around 12,
We walked along lonely streets and got to know ourselves,
I like to read, she likes to write,
She likes to sleep, and I love to stay up all night,
My friends say I'm crazy and I agree,
But that's okay that's the way I like to be

Hey girl, come with me and let yourself go
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go

We went out late that night and we danced through the night
I was holding on to her and she be gripping it tight, she was
But she didn't care, I didn't mind
I was unaware that she liked to act so kind,
My friends say I'm crazy and I agree,
But that's okay that's the way I like to be

Hey girl, come with me and let yourself go (C'mon, c'mon)
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go (Just let yourself go)

Hush little baby don't say a word
I'd like to give you everything that you deserve.
I'll give you my heart, give you all my soul.
You can ask for my money, if you like you can have control.
In my mind, I miss you every night that you're not here.
Oh, I just want to sit around your life and breathe your air.
And if I cannot have you, I just don't want to live.
Oh I've got so much I'd like to give.

Hey girl, come with me and let yourself go (C'mon, c'mon)
Hey girl come with me and let yourself go, go, go (Just let yourself go)

My baby, my darling
Just let yourself go
My baby, my darling
I need to know
My sweetie, my lovely
I'd love to let you go
But I'm coming back for you, and I'm walking to your door.

    General CommentGOD DAMN DO I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG - most pretty huge o.a.r. fans favorite song is old school - off the wanderer - something like about an hour ago - but god damn it i fucking love this song just cause it makes you feel soo good - its the perfect serenader too: basically its about getting with a girl whose nothing like you - but your just having such a good time with it you couldn't care less - my school is filled with uptight chicks - and they all calm down and think less when i play this song (i played it with a band) - Guitar players: this song will get stubborn girls to give in
