"Oh Girl" as written by Jim Brown and Troy Lancaster....
Oh, girl
I'd be in trouble if you left me now
'Cause I don't know where to look for love
I just don't know how

Oh, girl
How I depend on you
To give me love when I need it
Right on time you would always be

All my friends call me a fool
They say, "Let the woman take care of you"
So I, I try to be hip and think like the crowd
But even the crowd can't help me now, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, girl
Tell me what am I gonna do
I know I've got a guilty face
Girl, I feel so out of place, oh, yeah, yeah

Don't know where to go and who to see, yeah

Oh, girl
I guess I better go
I can save myself a lot of useless tears
Girl, I've gotta get away from here

Oh, girl
Pain will double if you leave me now
'Cause I don't know where to look for love
And I don't, I don't know how

Oh, oh
Oh, girl
Why do I love you so, yeah
Better be on my way, I can't stay, yeah
Oh yeah
Uh huh
Have you ever seen such a helpless man

    General CommentGreat song, love this original version way better than the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes version (this one is way more laid back). The meaning is pretty straightforward.

    General CommentA man feels he'll be nothing without the woman he loves should she leave him and thinks he should do more. His so-called friends poke fun at him and tell him he's going about it all wrong with the second motion, saying the opposite is true. The man tries to be like the general crowd but in the end forfeits and decides to set the woman free believing she'd be happier with someone else.

    I could be wrong, though.

    General CommentI love this song, Paul Young's version from the early 90's was superb.
