Something So Right
Paul Simon Lyrics


Whoa I got time on my hands tonight
You're the girl of my dreams
When I'm near you my future seems bright

Oh I want you to be my girl
I want you to be my movie
I am Sal Mineo and I need you so
Sweet Bernadette

Whoa you got style from your hair to your heels
Though my words may be jumbled
Still I'm telling you just how it feels

I love you
I love you

And the breeze that wraps around you
Satin summer nights
A girl I can't forget
Whoa you're the smile of the moon Bernadette

Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home
Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home

Wop, wop, wop, wop
Come with me
There's a place I want you to see

When the leaves are dark
I've got a hiding place in central park
And the sky is a coat of diamonds

There's a wooden cross over my bed
The city is lit with candles
They're shining for you Bernadette

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Oo oo, Bernadette

Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home
Dom dom dom doo
Well-a well I'm home

Wop, wop, wop, wop, wop

Miss Understanding

You've got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You've got the look of love light
In your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
'Til you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down
When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right
They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
I've got a wall around me
You can't even see
It took a little time
To get to me
When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right
Some people never say the words
I love you
It's not their style
To be so bold
Some people never say those words
I love you
But like a child they're longing
To be told
When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

You've got the cool water

You've got the look of lovelight in your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
Til you calmed me down

But you calmed me down

When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
I've got a wall around me
You can't even see
It took a little time
To get next to me

When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

Some people never say the words
I love you
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say those words

But like a child they're longing to be told

When something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it
But the last one to know
When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

What a soulful, moving and totally chill song! My goodness! Listening in 2020!!!

Nadya de Jong

Genius. Beautiful lyrics. Can’t believe there are so few views and no comments...

Please permit me to speak oh great one

I've never heard this version before, I grew up with a live version that in my eyes is a better performance.
Not sure of the exact version but after the line "They got a wall in China" he sings "It's a thousand miles or more"....which I prefer.

Sameh Strauch

This is the kind of song that as a songwriter, I wish I had written.

Edward Guevarra

You're right this song is pure genius! It's been one of my favorite songs since I w as 14 . Im 61 and it's still as awesome as the first time I heard it!
