The Lyrics

I sometimes sing this song while I am sleeping each night. During this song I dream that I had still had a girlfriend.
Girlfriend frequently seen
If you know what I really mean
On the porch under the roof
She could be another sleuth
Girlfriend from a different nest
Very fun just like all of the rest
God only knows if we'll ever get married when we're older
Everybody's trying to steal her
But they don't know where to start
The principal lady says that she has wings on her heart

Girlfriend from a different nest
Very fun just like all of the rest
If you can't catch her, you can't claim her
If you can't see her, don't nickname her
Stay on the ground or she will shoot you down
Wings on her heart, she's my girlfriend

Her only home is with her folks
Telling her to give me the most
Above the whole Shenango Valley
Not the home of my Sally

Girlfriend from a different nest
Very fun just like all of the rest
If you can't catch her, you can't claim her
If you can't see her, don't nickname her
Stay on the ground or she will shoot you down
Wings on her heart, she's my girlfriend

I just don't know if I'm gonna marry her
But I know we will live in Pittsburgh
We'll live on Mount Washington, on Grandview Avenue
Until we decide to retire

Girlfriend from a different nest
Very fun, just like all of the rest
If you can't catch her, you can't claim her
If you can't see her, don't nickname her
Stay on the ground or she will shoot you down
Wings on her heart, she's my girlfriend
Watch out, men, she's my girlfriend

Girlfriend to marry
At the Church of Notre Dame
Girlfriend just like all of the rest
Watch out, men, she's my girlfriend
Shoot you down, she's my girlfriend
It's a girl, it's a friend, she's my girlfriend

Ya know...there ARE other artists out there beside Jimmy Buffet. You should branch out a little.
