She used to be 
Everything to me
When she was my girl
When she was my girl

I held her near
Told her how much I cared
When she was my girl
When she was my girl

When she was my girl
There was laughter and loving in my world
Everyday
When she was my girl
Oh what joy she would bring
Now I've lost everything
She's gone, gone, gone gone, gone!

I spend the night 
Dreaming how she used to be
When she was my girl
When she was my girl

When she was my girl
There was laughter and loving in my world
Yes it was
'Cause she was my girl
Oh what joy she would bring
Now I've lost everything
She's gone, the big legged girl is gone

She used to be
Everything to me
When she was my girl, yeah
My girl

She, she's my girl
She's so foxy baby and this girl belongs to me
She's my girl
When we walk down the street
I would tell everyone we meet
This is my girl
She, she was my girl
