“She”
By Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart

(She) she told me that she loved me,
And like a fool I believed her from the start
(She) she said she’d never hurt me,
But then she turned around and broke my heart
Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?

(Hey) she only did me wrong
(Hey) I’m better off alone
(She) she devoured all my sweet love,
Took all I had and then she fed me dirt

(She) she laughed while I was crying
It was such a joke to see the way it hurt
Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?

(Hey) she only did me wrong
(Hey) I’m better off alone
And now I know just why she,
Keeps me hanging ’round,
(Hanging ’round)
She needs someone to walk on
So her feet don’t touch the ground
(Don’t touch the ground)
But I love her (love her)
I need her (need her)
I want her (want her)
Yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah she

Why am I standing here
Missing her and wishing she were here?
(Hey) she only did me wrong, now
(Hey) I’m better off alone
(She) why am I missing her?
(She) I should be kissing her
(She) why am I missing her?
(She) I should be kissing her
