“Forget That Girl” (rough backing vocals) Lyrics

Micky: Go ahead. Hit it please, Hanky poo?
Peter: One, two, three, four.
Davy: It’s better too.
?: It is better. You’re right.

Forget that girl (Ah)
She’ll only make you sad someday
Forget that girl
She’ll never make you happy
Stay away from her, my friend
Stay away from her

Forget that girl (Ah)
She’ll only bring you down again (Ah)
Forget that girl (Ah)
She’ll only make you lonely (Lonely)
Stay away from her, my friend
Stay away from her

There was a time when she could really love you (Ah-ah)
When she was thinking only of you (Ah-ah)
But now she’s put herself above you (Ah-ah)
And there’s nothing you can do (Ah-ah-ah-ah)

Forget that girl
Even though you find it’s hard
Forget that girl (Ah)
Even though you love her (Love her)
She’s in love with him, my friend (Micky: I think I might overdub this twice.)
She’s in love with him
Oh yeah, she’s in love with him (Him)

?: Oh, god!
Micky: It wasn’t me!
?: Who [???]
Peter: Bull-shit!
Micky: Uh-uh.
?: Eeeee.
?: Once more from the top.
Peter: Yeah, but you’re so—

Forget that girl, forget that girl
Forget that girl, forget that girl
Forget that girl, forget that girl
Forget that girl, forget that girl
