Copacetic, calm my frenetic, she's the shit y'all
Highly-rated, well-educated, she's an angel
She's ambitious, beautiful, delicious, got a restaurant
I can take it, truth stripped me naked, yeah I fucked up? yeah

She was my girl
Used to be my world
I miss my girl
What a fine girl

She put together, says she's doing better since she let go
Repeating dreamer, now and then I see her and we have lunch
Ever playful, hook the jumper cable, give me fresh spark
Sister ringing, old reminder stinging, bridges burned hoss? yeah

She was my girl
Used to be my world
I miss my girl
What a fine girl

She called me up, I guess she pretty stuck, she needed my help
It made me happy, hence the lyric sappy, I still love her? yeah

She was my girl
Used to be my world
I miss my girl
What a fine girl

Such a fine girl
I miss my girl
Used to be my world
She was my girl

    I agree. The 'D-Trip" CD as a whole is wearing thin on me except for a few songs, including this one.

    I used to hate this song. I just thought, because of the title that it was only a love song. I knew that Jerry was trying to distance himself from his work with Alice somewhat but I just really did not believe that he shoud be sounding like a love sick teenager. Then I actually listened to it! Now I love it!

    Wow. Not only did he have to contend with the loss of Layne, arguably the closest male & creative relationship he\'d ever had, but with the loss of Courtney, the love of his life, to boot! Geez, no wonder the guy was so messed up. So many times I wish I could just hug the hell outta him. ????
