SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GIRL

Music by Stevie Wonder 
Lyrics by Stevie Wonder, Clarence Paul, Morris Broadnax

There’s something about this girl

I know it in my heart

I’ve tried to deny it, but I can’t hide it

The truth remains the same

When she talks to me,

She looks right through and I cling to every word

(Or: and I don’t hear a word

(Ohhhh, she’s saying to me, a word, she’s saying to me...)

 

There’s something about this girl

That draws me to her world

Every day she looks through, her astrology books

Tracing movements in the sky

And when our stars align she invades my mind

And when our stars align she dance through mind

Leaving nothing but stardust behind

 

I think of her as a ray of light

That haunts me through my lonely nights

Have you any love for me?

Wont you tell me? You can set me free

 

There’s something about this girl

I knew it from the start

I’m trying to decide, how I can make her mine

As I bide my time

She’s the one I want, she’s the one I need

Gotta have her in my life

 

Interlude

Oh it’s something,

Something about this girl

 

There’s something about this girl

I know it sounds strange, but she’s from another world

But she’s my secret obsession, my blind ambition

To end up by her side

It’s hard to resist, I confess, I admit

I’m quietly losing my mind

 

I think of her as a ray of light

That haunts me through my lonely nights

Have you any love for me?

Genie, can you set me free?

Wont you tell me? You can set me free

 

I think of her as a ray of light

That haunts me through my lonely nights

Have you any love for me?

Genie, can you set me free?

Wont you tell me? You can set me free

 

(Optional)

There’s something about this girl

I knew it from the start

I’m trying to decide how I can make her mine

As I bide my time

She’s the one I want, she’s the one I need

Gotta have her in my life
