The Amplifetes – Somebody New Lyrics:
ou got that dance
You got that bongo drum
You got that whiskey cupboard

You got that gaze
You got those magic shoes
You got that hickey covered

You do that walk
You got that masterplan
You do that vowel tuck-in

You got that voice
You got that eurolook
You got that bag of goodies

And now the sun goes down my friend
As we’re going south bound once again

This time I’ll let you come along
Cause you know just what to do
This time I’ll let you come along
Cause I need somebody new

I want some sun
I need some action man
I want some recreation

You want some speed
You need some motion burn
You want some kisses static.

I got my time
I got my overdrive
I got my mind on Memphis
And though it’s to comprehend
I think we’re heading south bound once again

This time I’ll let you come along
Cause you know just what to do
This time I’ll let you come along
Cause I need somebody new
x2

You got that dance.
You got that bongo drum.
You got that whiskey cupboard.

You got that gaze.
You got those magic shoes.
You got that hickey covered.

You do that walk.
You got that masterplan.
You do that vowel tuck-in.

You got that voice.
You got that eurolook.

This time I’ll let you come along.
Cause you know just what to do.
This time I’ll let you come along.
Cause I need somebody new.
