she's so fine
Strypes The Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Well I know a little girl who likes to keep her tail up high,
You know she's got a weapon and a method to make you cry,
Because she float like a bee but she sting like a butterfly.

She doesn't like to talk but she likes to dance all night,
She doesn't like the dark but she likes it when I turn out the light,
Because she float like a bee but she sting like a butterfly.
She's So Fine,
She's So Fine,
Yeah my girl's So Fine,




Yeah my baby's So Fine,
Because she float like a bee but she sting like a butterfly.

Overall Meaning

The Strypes' song "She's So Fine" is a playfully romantic tune that depicts the singer's affection for a woman who possesses a potent combination of allure and unpredictability. The singer's description of the woman as someone who likes to keep her tail up high suggests a sense of confidence and power that she exudes. The mention of the woman's weapon and method to make you cry furthers the idea of her enigmatic and potentially dangerous nature. The imagery of a bee and a butterfly is cleverly incorporated to describe her. The bee's ability to float, or move gracefully, is juxtaposed with the butterfly's ability to sting, or cause pain - two contrasting traits that she embodies.


Despite this unpredictable demeanor, the singer is drawn to her, highlighting the allure that she has over him. The fact that she likes to dance all night further emphasizes her energetic and lively persona. Turning off the lights during their time together provides an intimate and romantic setting, showcasing the singer's appreciation for her.


Overall, "She's So Fine" is a catchy and flirtatious song that captures the attraction that the singer has for a woman with a captivating yet unpredictable personality.

Let's talk about something everyone would ignore. He's playing the HECK out of that bass, one of the best rhythm sections I've seen from modern bands, maybe the best!

Ron Roffel

Had this band been around in '66, they would have taken the world by storm, even in the face of stiff competition from the Yardbirds, the Leaves, the Remains and other top acts of the day. The Strypes have energy and musicianship well beyond most of the top 40 acts today. They will still get to the top, despite the presence of non-singers, non-musicians and brats who are the favourites of tweens, teens and people who mistake celebrity for talent.

@Ken Deater Most of my music listening is from the exact time period you've just pointed out and the closest they sound to 60s Britain is Them, The Pretty Things and The Yardbirds, but they have some sort of modern rock thing going on too which isnt very 60s. And in their later career they completely tossed their mod wannabe look

Ken Deater

@EXP Realtor hey Bill, not trolling, being rude or argumentative…you need to check out some early to mid 60s British rock, cause these guys sound exactly like that’s where & when they’re from! Start with some Yardbirds…& limit yourself to pre 67…

Steve Bowness

Agree absolutely 💯 these kids have got more talent in their little finger/s than some of these celebrity singers x factor people

Ron Roffel

@Atkins Paints The World! I have more than 2,500 singles and assorted LPs from the era, and lived through the period, so I know my stuff. Yes, garage bands were as you say "a dime a dozen", but the ones who made it like the Remains, the Seeds, the Leaves, ? and the Mysterians, etc., and made a mark, no matter how small, were not the norm. For every band of that calibre, there were hundreds of others struggling to make ends meet playing music. Most ended up like Mitch Ryder if they stuck with it long enough: he never made it past his one hit, but kept on going, decade after decade, searching for that next break. This is not to disparage his music, just that he is a good example of someone with more tenacity and drive than what the fickle radio/LP market usually wanted. so, I stand by my comment that this band would have made a mark on the music of the time.

Atkins Paints The World!

no they wouldn't, those bands were a dime a dozen back then, do your research. just listen to any of the Pebbles or Rubble compilations, or countless other ones.
