lyrics

Big boots and long black hair
She caught my eye as she was standing there
Seemed to me she was looking for a reaction
I moved closer to that perfect skin
Smelled cigarettes and some weird sin
I can’t deny I felt a certain animal attraction

I said, I don't know if I love you
But I think I'd like to know your name

She said, "Listen, junior, you got big ideas
But you seem a little wet behind the ears,
So allow me to explain this here transaction.
I don't need a lover or a ticket to ride
I don’t need to know how many tears you cried
All I need is a man who can give me satisfaction.

And I might let you love me
But I don’t need to know your name
And another thing boy…

If you want to love me
You better get down on your knees
Say a little prayer for your soul”
Well, you better believe
I got down on my knees
And said a little prayer for my soul
And it went like this...

Well she showed me what the night was for
But when I picked myself up off that kitchen floor
She was gone and she left no forwarding instruction
Well, I miss that girl and the way she moved
But I guess I do feel kind of abused
‘Cause I never got a f-f-formal introduction

And, I think I could have loved her
But I never even knew her name
Yes, I think I could have loved her
But I never even knew her name
She said “I’ll might let you love me
But I don’t need to know your name.
I’m gonna let you love me
But I don’t need to know your name”.
