Something So Right

ŠPaul Simon, released on There Goes Rhymin' Simon, 1973

.

You've got the cool water

When the fever runs high

You've got the look of lovelight in your eyes

And I was in crazy motion

'til you calmed me down

It took a little time

But you calmed me down

.

When something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it

I'm the first to admit it

And the last one to know

.

when something goes right

Well it's likely to lose me, mm

It's apt to confuse me

It's such an unusual sight

Oh, I can't, I can't get used to something so right

Something so right

.

They've got a wall in China

It's a thousand miles long

To keep out the foreigners they made it strong

And I've got a wall around me

That you can't even see

It took a little time

To get next to me

.

When something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it

I'm the first to admit it

And the last one to know

when something goes right

Well it's likely to lose me, mm

It's apt to confuse me

because it's such an unusual sight

Oh, I swear, I can't get used to something so right

Something so right

.

Some people never say the words "I love you"

It's not their style

to be so bold

Some people never say those words "I love you"

But like a child they're longing to be told, mm

.

When something goes wrong

I'm the first to admit it

I'm the first to admit it

And the last one to know

when something goes right

Well it's likely to lose me, mm

It's apt to confuse me

because it's such an unusual sight

I swear, I can't, I can't get used to something so right

Something so right

.

hmmmmm, ooohhhhh,

Something so right
