What kind of girl is this?
She’s never ever been kissed
Rubbidy rub dub dub
She’s never ever been in love
She’s never been in the moonlight
Watchin’ the stars above
What kind of girl is this?
She’s never been out on a date
What kind of girl is this?
She’s never ever come home late
But I begged her on my knees to please go out with me
And she did
Did ya love her? (No, no, no, no!)
Did ya hug her? (No, no no no no!)
Did ya kiss her? (No, no, no, no!)
Did ya squeeze her? (No, no no no no!)
What kind of girl is this?
She’s never ever been kissed
What kind of girl is this?
Let me tell you
She’s the kind you can’t resist
But I lover her, can’t you see?
She’s the kind of girl for me
She’s so respectable!
