"Be My Girl - Sally" as written by and Sting....
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

I was blue and lonely,
I couldn't sleep a wink
And I could only get unconscious
If I'd had to much to drink

There was somehow, something wrong somewhere,
And each day seemed grey and dead
The seeds of desperation
Were growing in me head

I needed inspiration,
A brand new start in life,
Somewhere to place affection,
But I didn't want a wife

And then by lucky chance I saw
In a special magazine
An ad that was unusual,
The like I'd never seen,

"Experience something different
With our new imported toy,
She's loving, warm, inflatable
And a guarantee of joy"

She came all wrapped in cardboard,
All pink and shriveled down
A breath of air was all she needed
To make her lose that frown

I took her to the bedroom
And pumped her with some life,
And later in a moment
That girl became my wife

And so I sit her in the corner
And sometimes stroke her hair
And when I'm feeling naughty
I blow her up with air

She's cuddly and she's bouncy,
She's like a rubber ball,
I bounce her in the kitchen
And I bounce her in the hall

And now my life is different
Since Sally came my way
I wake up in the morning
And have her on a tray

She's everything they say she was
And I wear a permanent grin,
And I only have to worry
In case my girl wears thin

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my girl
Won't you be my, be my,
Be my girl

    General CommentI think the final verse actually ends with "in case my girl wears thin".

    I love the contrast between the sung and spoken portions of the song. This is a rare vocal by Andy Summers. "Mother" on Synchronicity also has Andy on vocals and is also about a very sexually disturbed man.

    General Comment… and 'Be My Girl - Sally', about Andy Summers falling in love with an inflatable doll (too much Bryan Ferry listening, Andy?), is hilarious as long as it's music, but I don't think the narrative interruption is funny at all. Experimental, maybe, but... eh...
    In all other respects, though, Outlandos D'Amour is really cool to listen to, and for many bands of the epoch it would have been a crowning masterpiece - it is nothing short of a miracle that the Police's next two records each improved on each other. Take this one as the band's Please Please Me.

    General CommentThis song was also one of the highlights of the Police's early concerts. Believe it or not! :-D
    Andy Summers did have a taste for distasteful lyrics :-P
    Also: Friends (a song about cannibalism)!

    General CommentI just love Andy's poem! This is the sweetest declaration of love to an inflatable doll of all time! : D OK, it's the only declaration to a doll I know, but still, I don't think anyone could beat it. *rofl*
    I also like the way he reads the poem, as if it was a bedtime story for kids.
