"The Girl In The Dirty Shirt" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
If I may be so bold that I could say something
Come and make me my day
The clouds around your soul don't gather there for nothing
I can chase them all away
Why do you need a reason for to feel happy
Or shining for the rest of the world
Give me just a smile and would you make it snappy
Get your shit together girl
You got a feeling lost inside
It just won't let you go
Life is sneaking up behind
It just won't let you go
No it just won't let you go
Is what I'm trying to say
Is would you maybe, come dancing with me
'Cause to me it doesn't matter
If your hopes and dreams are shattered
'Cause when you say something you make me believe
In the girl who wears a dirty shirt
She knows exactly what she's worth
Knows exactly what she's worth to me!
That I can see, I can see
If you ever find yourself inside a bubble
You've gotta make your own way home
You can call me anytime you're seeing double
Now you know you're not alone

    General CommentLiam&Noel say..The Girl in the Dirty Shirt- "Meg is the girl in the dirty shirt. We were doing a gig in Brighton just before me and Meg were going out. She was at the hotel ironing a dirty shirt because she hadn´t brought enough clothes with her. I know it sounds a bit soft. Liam will read this and say, `You wanker!´ becuase he thinks all the songs are about him. He even thinks Wonderwall is about him."

    General CommentI've found this song a bit of a disappointment. I still love it but i was kinda hoping that the dirty shirt was somehow metaphorical.

    General CommentI totally agree with Nymphetamineaddict. I was hoping for "dirty shirt" to be a metaphor as well, but as with any song, even though the artist intended for it to be about something specific, we can still relate to the song in our own way. In whatever way we get the most out of the song. :) Love this song, and all of Be Here Now.

    General CommentAlso, being really sad here, the lyrics that have been put up are gramatically very wrong. You're is what YOU'RE looking for. (you are seeing double)
