Song title: Crush on you

Crush on you

My feet were flyin’ down the street
just the other night
When a Hong Kong special
pulled up at the light
What was inside, man,
was just c’est magnifique
I wanted to hold the bumper and let her
drag me down the street

Ooh, ooh, I gotta crush on you
Ooh, ooh, I gotta crush on you
Ooh, ooh, I gotta crush on you tonight

Sometimes I spot a little stranger
standing ‘cross the room
My brain takes a vacation
just to give my heart more room
For one kiss, darling I swear
everything I would give
Cause you’re a walking,
talking reason to live


Well now she might be
the talk of high society
She’s probably got a lousy personality
She might be a heiress to Rockefeller
She might be a waitress or a bank teller
She makes the Venus de Milo
look like she’s got no style
She make Sheena of the Jungle
look meek and mild
I need a quick shot, Doc,
knock me off my feet
Cause I’ll be minding my own business
walking down the street... watchout!
