“The Girl I Knew Somewhere” Lyrics

You tell me that you’ve never been this way before
You tell me things I know that I’ve heard somewhere
You’re standing in the places
And you’re staring down faces
That bring to mind traces of a girl
A girl that I knew somewhere

I just can’t put my finger on what it is
That says to me, “Watch out, don’t believe her”
[???] in a whirl
My thoughts are bound down in a whirl
I just can’t think who in the world was that girl?
I know I met her somewhere

Someway, somehow, the same thing was done
Someone, somewhere, did me the same wrong

[break]
Hup! Hup!

So, goodbye, dear, I just can’t take this chance again (Yeah, goodbye, dear, I just can’t take this chance again)
My fingers are still burning from the last time (My fingers are still burning from the last time)
And if your love was not a game
I only have myself to blame
That’s as may be, I can’t explain, just ask
The girl that I knew somewhere

And if your love was not a game
I only have myself to blame
That’s as may be, I can’t explain, just ask
The girl that I knew somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere

Peter: Yeah! Thank you then.
Micky: And now, the velvet voiced midget will sing that song so dear to our hearts.
