Newtown Girls

Verse G D C d7

Chorus C7 C G G7 (repeat) C C# D D7

You’ll often see her on a Friday night
Down on Broughton st among the bright lights.
She and the girls have all got beautiful hair
Everybody knows she’s loaded, but she doesn’t care

She’s a New Town girl
She’s got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into her world
Because I just dont have anything in common with her.

At the age of eighteen
She bought the biggest property that you’ve ever seen
On the edge of George square,
so in the morning she’d have extra time for doing her hair

She’s a New Town girl
She’s got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into her world
Because I just don’t have anything in common with her.

I met her brother Tom, and his new girlfriend Tamara
they’re lots of fun,
they spent the last year living in Nairobi
We’re going straight back out there man
Or so they have told me

You’re a New Town girl
You’ve got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into her world
Because I just dont have anything in common with her

You’re at the Liquid Rooms on a Friday night
Drink some Tennents and you’re feelin alright
You go and talk to her but you wont get far
She only pulls in Garibaldi’s and Po Na Na Na

You’re a Newtown Girl
You’ve got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into your world
Cos I just dont have anything in common with you.
