My Best Friend's Girl
The Cars Lyrics


You're always dancing down the street
With your suede blue eyes
And every new boy that you meet
He doesn't know the real surprise

(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
Ooh, she'll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
I kinda like the way she dips

She's my best friend's girl
She's my best friend's girl
But she used to be mine

You've got your nuclear boots
And your drip dry glove
Ooh when you bite your lip
It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
Yeah, I think you'll flip
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
(Here she comes again)
I kinda like the way, I like the way she dips
'Cause she's my best friend's girl
Well she's my best friend's girl
And she used to be mine
She's so fine

You're always dancing down the street
With your suede blue eye-eyes
And every new boy that you meet
Doesn't know the real surprise

(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
(Here she comes again)
Oh, she'll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing 'neath the starry sky
(Here she comes again)
I kinda like the way, I like the way she dips
'Cause she's my best friend's girl, uh
She's my best friend's girl-irl uh-irl
She used to be mine
She so, fine

(My best friend's girlfriend) oh
(My best friend's girlfriend)
She used to be mine
(My best friend's girlfriend) yeah yeah
(My best friend's girlfriend)
Said she used to be mine
(My best friend's girlfriend) oh, yeah yeah yeah
(My best friend's girlfriend)
She used to be mine
(My best friend's girlfriend)
(My best friend's girlfriend)

If I was Ric Ocasek writing this song, I would be so fascinated by the initial rhythm guitar part, that I would never even think about lead guitar parts and solos. This is the TAB of his intro/verse riff (it was written, performed, and recorded in E major, but they sped the studio version up to F. If you want to play along to the studio version, either put a capo on your 1st fret, or just learn the difference in F; it's not too hard):

E--------------------------|-------------------------------|
B--------------------------|-------------------------------|
G--------------------------|-------------------------------|
D--------------------------|----2-2-2-0-1-1-1-11----|
A----2-2-2-2---2-2-2--|----0-0-0-0-2-2-2-22----|
E----0-0-0-0---0-0-0--|-------------------------------|

What I love about this is, it goes from two power (root and fifth) chords, E and A, to a root and major-third dyad, instead of doing that B as a regular power chord. If you try it with a regular B power chord, it's a lot less interesting.
So it was a good song from the start, but wow, Elliot Easton put such great hooks and solos into it!

0:49 0:50 - The drummer accidentally hits the rim instead of the snare, missing the snare beat. These kinds of recording errors actually show that these are fine musicians, who aren't unafraid of leaving in the occasional human mistake.  I'll take that over any overproduced auto-tuned product any day.
