Michael McDonald - Hey Girl Lyrics

Hey girl, I want you to know
I'm gonna miss you so much if you go
Hey girl, I'll tell you no lie
Something deep inside of me's going to die
If you say so long, if this is goodbye

Hey girl, this can't be true
How am I supposed to exist without you?
Hey girl, don't put me on
What's gonna happen to me when you're gone?
How will I live, how can I go on?
How can I go on?

Hey girl, now sit yourself down
I'm not afraid to get down on the ground
And beg you, beg you to stay
Don't go away

    I remember having heard another remix version on radio, but couldn't locate that version since then......

  14. jeremy moviefan

    Real music from a legend

  15. Feiko Temme1

    I remember kneeling down in front of my girl like that.It didn't help me.I clutched her leg,kneeling.She shrugged me off.It took me years to understand.That deep down she knew she hadn't been given time enough to waste time with anybody who threathened her limited span of life - me,at that time.She passed away,39 years old,19 years ago.Married to somebody else.I never met her again after we parted.Because we didn't want to hurt each other.I only visited her grave once I learned she passed away.I'm 60 now,but it comes back to me every once in a while,it can be a sound,a smell,a place,a lightfall,everything.But most of all this song.

  16. Simon Johnson

    If I could sing like anyone in the entire history of music it would have to be Michael McDonald.

  54. Edward Sarkisian

    I LOVE THIS,...

  55. Mason Martinez

    The original by Freddie Scott is one of my all-time favorites.  Michael McDonald does it justice . . . excellent cover!!!!!

    Ruben's SmoothJazz

    Thanks Mason, Michael since the Doobie Brothers was unique and remain true to his interpretations with these songs. best regards.

    Sydney Masinga

    I thought the original was Carole King and Gerry Goffin: I could be wrong.


    @Sydney Masinga Freddie Scott recorded the original version in 1963. Carole King and Gerry Goffin did write it, but Carole didn't record it until 1980 (although she probably recorded a demo originally).

  56. Al Gibbs

    This is one fine recording

    Mason Martinez

    +Al Gibbs This is good . . . also Billy Joel's version.

    Al Gibbs

    Michael is in a class by himself
