Lyrics

Virginia backyards, suburban life
Don't wake the parents on Potomac tonight
Roll on the couch by the T.V.'s light
In the basement, no one else in sight

I fear the day that I am not with you

Unlock the front door sneak out the house
Down to Montana where A.C. hangs out
Feeling fifteen, feeling no doubt
That your sweet voice let my youth out

You're just a stupid girl, stupid girl
Stupid girl, I ain't no brilliant boy
You're just a stupid girl, stupid girl
I ain't no brilliant boy

Down to train depot, get in line, in file
Goodbye Virginia with your lousy style
Goodbye my gal, same time next year
Goodbye my gal, I'll always love you dear

Stupid girl, stupid girl
I ain't no brilliant boy
