Catch 22 Lyrics

Not long ago in my high school days
I watched a girl from so far away
But every time she passed me by
I turned my head away and quietly sighed
And when she walked by
Her hair would dance a secret tango
That only I could understand
And if she asked me for the time of day
I'd look her in the eyes and quietly say
Ooh Kristina, Kristina
Do you have any clue who I am?
(Hell no)
So listen up because I'll tell you once
And I'll explain myself the best that I can
Ooh Kristina, Kristina
You don't know me so I'll have to persist
I'm kind of shy so don't wonder why
Kristina she don't know I exist

From class to class I followed her
But I swore I'd leave her undisturbed
And if she ever stopped and turned around
I got so nervous and I stared at the ground
And then one day in photography
I found a contact print that I could not believe
And there she was staring back at me
So I took her home so quietly

1.17.98 it's been a day that I've come to hate
As I walked into the video store
There she stood as my jaw fell to the floor
Tapping her toe waiting in line
With a movie and another guy
Why did I bother?
Why did I care about this girl named Kristina Behr?
Kristina, Kristina
You'll never get to know who I am
This is goodbye so please don't cry
And I'll let you down as softly as I can
Kristina, Kristina
Another name to cross off my list
In another life it could have been nice
But Kristina she won't know what she missed

The original Keasbey Nights will always be the best. But Tom expanded on a lot with streetlight


like many people, I guess, I went out with a girl named Kristina and we had a wicked good time listening to this and the SM version. good times, good song.

This was my song dedicated to a girl named Kristina in my college algebra class back when I was 18 (like 13 years ago i'm so old!) and of course she didn't know I existed!
