Groupie

Lyrics: Dave Torbert
Music: Dave Torbert

A New Riders song, also played by Dave Torbert with Kingfish.

All the boys taking notice
As she walks up from the back of the hall
You know she's jumping and a-bumping
Man she's really something
Came to hear the music that's all
But things are so confusing
She looks like some illusion
Someone better look and see
You know she really ain't no groupie
She said so in a movie (note 1)
At least that's what she said to me

Here she comes a-dancing
Silver and satin
Looks like an angel I know
She's mighty good looking
And she sure got something cooking
Watch the little lady go
She's just here to tease you
Love you and a-leave you
Someone give the girl a chance
You know she really ain't no groupie
She said so in a movie
At least that's what she said to me

The guards won't let her
But she says she knows the drummer
Gets up on the side of the stage
When she starts a-bopping
The band starts a-rocking
Came to her the music, OK
And later on that evening
She seen with someone leaving
In a long black limousine
You know she really ain't no groupie
She said so in a movie
At least that's what she said to me

You know she really ain't no groupie
She said so in a movie
At least that's what she said to me
Notes
(1) sometimes I think this line may be "She's set to win a movie" - though the official NRPS site says it's "She said so in a movie"
