Oh, she looked good

It was just like a dream

I knew I wouldn't sleep tonight

And her eyes shot right through me

Had me holding on for my life

She knew the magic word

She didn't waste no time

She had my number dialed

Like she could read my mind

She was dead on the money

She was perfect for me

She was dead on the money

She was everything I wanted a love to be

Everything I wanted love to be

So we talked

And then she took me home

I was smoking like a cigarette

She asked for one more kiss

And then I knew

I hadn't seen nothing yet

Like every time before

It was a shot in the dark

But when she took the reins

Yeah, she was right on the mark
