Not That Kind Of Girl


I guess I ain’t no father figure,
‘n’I don’t want mother-of-pearl.
I’m lookin’ for another treasure,
but she’s “not that kind of girl”.
It’s not the fact that I’m a shy boy,
I’ll give anything a whirl.
Met one too many in my lifetime,
mmmh another “not that kind of girl”.

She’s “not that kind of girl” – she told me.
She’s “not that kind of girl”.
She’s “not that kind of girl” – yeah I know.
She’s “not that kind of girl”.
She’s “not that kind of girl” – she told me.
She’s “not that kind of girl”.
She’s “not that kind of girl” – yeah I know.
She’s “not that kind of girl”.

All I want’s to make her happy,
see how things with us unfurl.
A lot of fun and much more loving,
but she’s “not that kind of girl”.
We go drinkin, we go dancin’,
she’s-got me in the biggest swirl.
But it seems like pleasure’s great sin.
‘cos she’s “not that kind of girl”.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I’d really like to, I’d really like to. I’d really like to. Cut to the chase.
I’d really like to, I’d really like to. I’d really like to. Ain’t no disgrace.
I’d really like to, I’d really like to. I’d really like to. Put her straight.
I’d really like to, I’d really like to. I’d really like to. Light up her face.

Some say beauty’s only skin-deep,
but wow! This lady’s got it all.
Just needs and loves her nightly beauty sleep
yeah, she’s “not that kind of girl”.
My honesty just falls on deaf ears
so time to lie and be a churl.
But all my wiles leave her in tears,
‘cos she’s “not that kind of girl”.

CHORUS
