Joe Jackson
Is She Really Going Out With Him

Pretty women out walkin' with gorillas down my street
From my window I'm starin' while my coffee goes cold
Look over there
There's a lady that I used to know
She's married now or engaged or somethin', so I'm told

Is she really going out with him?
Is she really gonna take him home tonight?
Is she really going out with him?
Cause if my eyes don't deceive me
There's something going wrong around here

Tonight's the night when I go to all the parties down my street
I wash my hair and I kid myself I look really smooth
Look over there
Here comes Jeannie with her new boyfriend
They say that looks don't count for much and so there goes your proof


But if looks could kill
There's a man there who's marked down as dead
Cause I had my fill
Listen you take your hands from her head
I get so mean around this scene
Hey, baby


Something going wrong around here
Something going wrong around - here

** this song is probably the first song i ever taped off the radio to cassette and listened to lots as a child. i would have been around seven or eight. I LOVED it. I only remembered this when I heard it on the simpsons last night.
