Versions: #1#2#3
We all have in hart a forgotten little girl
At end hour of high school, ponytail and pleated skirt
We all have in heart an iron piece to erode
An old scooter of dream to put the mess on the road
And lil girl was singing (x2)
This thing to my heart and body still sticking
 
Everybody's doing a brand new dance now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
I know you'll get to like it
If you give it a chance now
(Come on baby, do the loco-motion)
 
We all have in heart the ticket to Liverpool
Helicopter stage exit to escape to walkabout
Excuse me Sir but I can't hear Big Ben ringing
The bourdons are buzzing, in London that's amazing
And Beatles were singing (x2)
This thing to my heart and body still sticking
 
It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, yeah yeah yeah yeah
 
What will it do for me to go and have my hair cut
Certificate once I get, will my life become better ?
Betty has laughed out loud in looking at my buzz cut
You don't like? I ask her,
Go complain to director!
And I was out of door.
And Beach Boys were singing
This thing to my heart and body still sticking
It sounds:
 
Round round get around
I get around
Yeah
Get around round round I get around
Get around
Get around get around
 
We all have in hart holiday in Saint-Malo
And the parents in swimsuits dancing on "Luis Mariano"
At the "Blue waves campsite", I feel myself so bizarre
If I worked a little, well I'd have bought a guitar
Saint-Malo was sleeping
And radios were singing
This thing to my heart and body still sticking
 
Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria
 
In my suburb cafe you saw the gang of Jimmy
It rock a lot, it rolls around the "baby"*
The poor Jimmy got caught at the record store, crazy!
With a single of the Stones hidden in clothing
And rockers were rolling
And the stones were singing
This thing to my heart and body still sticking
 
I can't get no, I can't get no, satisfaction. yeah! yeah! yeah!
 
* baby foot ou baby-foot : Mechanical wooden football game, larger than a pinball machine, usually found in bars in France and Europe where's very popular. It can be played in two or four (1 or 2 people on each side of the game board).
 
Thanks!
