Cars, The - My Best Friend's Girl Lyrics

You're always dancing
Down the street
With your suede blue eyes
And every new boy that you meet
He doesn't know the real surprise

(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing
'Neath the starry sky
Ooh, she'll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing
'Neath the starry sky
I kinda like the way she dips

She's my best friend's girl
She's my best friend's girl
But she used to be mine

You've got your nuclear boots
And your drip dry glove
Ooh, when you bite your lip
It's some reaction to
Love, oh..ove, oh..ove

(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing
'Neath the starry sky
Yeah, I think you'll flip
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing
'Neath the starry sky
(Here she comes again)
I kinda like the way
I like the way she dips

'Cause she's my best friend's girl
Well, she's my best friend's girl
And she used to be mine
She's so fine

You're always dancing
Down the street
With your suede blue eye.. eyes
And every new boy that you meet
Doesn't know the real surprise

(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing
'Neath the starry sky
(Here she comes again)
Oh, she'll make you flip
(Here she comes again)
When she's dancing
'Neath the starry sky
(Here she comes again)
I kinda like the way
I like the way she dips

'Cause she's my best friend's girl, uh
She's my best friend's girl
She used to be mine
She so fine

(My best friend's girlfriend)
(My best friend's girlfriend)
She used to be mine
(My best friend's girlfriend)
Yeah, yeah
(My best friend's girlfriend)
Said she used to be mine
(My best friend's girlfriend)
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
(My best friend's girlfriend)
She used to be mine
(My best friend's girlfriend)
(My best friend's girlfriend)

  1. Duncan Mcpherson

    Shane McCormick Macdadfu

  2. John Powers

    Lead guitar breaks into 'Words of Love' at the end with a little help from 'Come Go with Me' Stratocasters vs. Telecasters I think.

  3. William Olson

    Actual live performance. No lip syncing, no tape enhancement....

  4. Ker Plunk

    All these years later and I still love their music

  5. Lisa Cunningham

    Rest in peace, Ric. They don't make music like this anymore and that's a damn shame.

  6. Trish Muega

    I can't believe Benjamin Orr and Ric are my favorites and now they are in heaven RIP 😔

  7. Brian Melvin

    How can ELLIOTT Easton cram so many great riffs and one song. Incredible!

  8. Bob billings

    Does anyone know when and where this was?

  9. Cab Terrot

    Hopefully Ric and Ben have made peace on the other side. It didn't happen here.

  10. Arcade85

    What a great sound. Elliot Easton.

  11. Bill Hamm

    Reminds me of early Beatles

  12. PoppaFunkBand NYC Funk Rock Band

    Awesome Rockabilly vibe!

    How can a nation produce something so brilliant as the cars and so awful as Donald Trump?

    One has nothing to do with the other, idiot.

  14. Viking 44

    The most recognized Adams apple in Rock n Roll, these guys were the best!!!
