“I Can’t Get Her Off My Mind” (prev. unissued early version) Lyrics

I’ve been standing on the corner all day
Tryin’ to think of little things to say
’Cause she walks by every day about this time
And I can’t, I can’t get her off of my mind

I only met her ’bout a week ago
But the way she smiles lets me know
That she could see that maybe we were two of a kind
And I can’t, I can’t get her off of my mind

She’s so pretty
I couldn’t believe she’d ever look my way
But the way I’m feeling
I’m going to be stealing
That little girl’s heart today

I’m so happy I could almost fly
And I guess you know the reason why
I’m walkin’ down the street
With her little hand in mine
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind

[break]

She’s so pretty
I couldn’t believe she’d ever look my way
But the way I’m feeling
I’m going to be stealing
That little girl’s heart today

Well, I’m so happy I could almost fly
And I guess you know the reason why
I’m walkin’ down the street
With her little hand in mine
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind
And I don’t think I’ll ever get her off of my mind
