a tale of desire with a retro swing

lyrics

___________________________________________

SURELY, SHIRLEY

He’s going crazy
slowly but surely and
Shirley’s the reason why
He wants to tell that girl
with the curls how he feels
oh but he’s way too shy

Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday

He gets kind of swirly,
like a hurly burley
every time he sees her walk by
He can’t say a word to that bird he adores
‘cause his tongue is tied

Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday

He’s going crazy
slowly but surely and
Shirley’s the reason why
But maybe today he will say ”Hey, babe!”
and Shirley will stop and say “Hi”

Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley
Surely, Shirley will love him truly someday
Surely, Shirley
