“Sunny Girlfriend” Lyrics

Mike: I’d like to do a song off of our latest album called Headquarters. Oh, you know it. It’s called “Scroungy Girlfriend”.

Well, she owns and operates her own sunshine factory, yep, doo-bop, yep
Painting smiles on dolls and then on me, doo-bops around
She’s my sunny girlfriend and personality-ty-ty

Well, she’s got a book that tells about everybody’s past, yes, she does, it’s a book, and it can tell about everybody’s past
And she can make you slow while making your mind move fast, make you slow while making your mind move fast
Well, she’s my sunny girlfriend, and she is never last

While I am sleeping, shoo-bop-a-bop, shoo-bop-a-bop, daa
Then she comes creeping
Into my thoughts at night, yea-ah
Gazing down through eyes as red as thunder

Well, she can send you on your way to everywhere, woo
And she’s only started after you think that she is there
Well, she’s my sunny girlfriend, and she just doesn’t care
Well, she’s my sunny girlfriend, she doesn’t really care

Micky: Thank you.
