Needle In A Haystack
The Velvelettes Lyrics


Well well, I once believed all fellas were nice
But girls, listen to me, take my advice
Girls, you'd better get yourselves onto my track
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)
(She-doop, she-doop, la la)
(She-doop, she-doop, la la)

Girls, those fellas are sly, slick & shy
So don't you ever let 'em get you starry-eyed
Well, you may think their love is true
But they'll walk right over you
Now girls, you should know these things right off the back
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)
(She-doop, she-doop, la la)
(She-doop, she-doop, la la)

Now girls, I say I'm tellin' you the natural facts
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)

I'm tellin' you, girls, you'd better look before you leap
Still water sometimes runs very deep
You'll be sorry when you just jump
& do justice passed by love
Girls, you should know these things right off the back
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls? (Needle in a haystack)

I say you'd better take heed (needle in a haystack)
Listen to me (needle in a haystack)

You'd better play hard to get
Or you're gonna regret
The day you were born, girl
When he leaves you alone, girl
Good guys are like findin' a (needle in a haystack)
Girls, they're like findin' a (needle in a haystack)

Great tune! Should have been a blockbuster hit!

Sue Robinson

Absolutely the best Motown track EVER. šŸ˜Š As a former member of the Tamla Motown Appreciation Society in the '60s I am so, so pleased to hear this again!

Captain Keyboard

That would be one of the best Motown tracks. My favorite Velvelettes' song is, "He Was Really Saying Something," especially the long edition recorded by mosogotam.

Crackling Vinyl

Top 10 for sure

Allen Nelson

James Busbin
