I know a girl who likes ice cream cones
I know a girl who likes to pick her nose
I know a girl she’s been led on
She’s terrified to be depended on
Oh Oh she wants a boyfriend

I know a girl she likes bubble baths
I know a girl she likes private naps
She always gets those late night calls
She’s terrified to show her flaws
Oh Oh she wants a boyfriend
She wants someone to hold her tight
All night all night
She wants a boyfriend tonight

The perfect afternoon the sun’s setting soon
She’s got her shoes off her pedal to the floor
She either talked too much or didn’t talk enough
She either was too fat or thin
Tonight she’s gonna find someone who thinks she’s just right
A dirt road superstar good smile and good style
Young at heart who acts his age
No parasites or tornadoes who rip lives apart
She can almost feel it — seal the connection
There’s no speculation it is truth
Damn I’ve never seen her look this good!
