she's so fine
The Boppers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I′ve been searching for a girl
Bobby socks and a pony tail
When I saw her standing there
I had to pick her up I couldn't fail
′Cause I knew I had to make her mine
She's so cool, she's so fine
Woah woah woah woah
I was thinking there of things to say
Strollin up to her to make my play
I decided that I′d drive her home
Call her later on the telephone
′Cause I knew I had to make her mine
She's so cool, she′s so fine
Woah woah woah woah

(And then I knew she could be mine)
She said a guy was just a waste of time
(He's gonna lose that girl to me)
Just you wait and see!

Maybe later we could make a date
It′s gotta be tonight
'Cause I just can′t wait
If he sees us holding hands
He'd be wise to understand
That I knew I had to make her mine
She's so cool, she′s so fine
Woah woah woah woah

(Doo wop de waddy waddy
Doo wop de waddy waddy)
(Doo wop de waddy waddy
Doo wop de waddy waddy)
I′ve been searchin' (I′ve been searchin') for a girl




I′ve been searchin' (I′ve been searchin') for a girl
Wooh woo-oo-ooh
