Lyrics
May it never be said she's knockin' them dead
At the start as we all should know
But is there a fame, it's such a cryin' shame what they're sayin'
That she's some kind of sleaze, that's a social disease
It's more than a game that they're playin'
Shut up, shut up
Don't tell me that my best friend's a menace
As loony as the day she was born
She might wind up in a book written by Guinness
It's all right with me, if she wants to be

Shut up, shut up
Round me a bend and I'm needin' a friend she comes to me
Call her name in the air and she'll soon be there
If you want her to be

She's one of a kind and I sure am glad that I met her
The story book lies, there's stars in her eyes
I couldn't have found one much better
But there's something we all should know
Shut up, shut up
She's a kind of a gnu that belongs in a zoo

Don't tell me that my best friends like Alice
It's all right with me, if she wants to be
Who might wind up in a looking-glass palace
As naughty as the day she was born
Shut up, shut up
Call her name in the air and she'll soon be there
If you want her to be
Round me a bend and I'm needin' a friend she comes to me
Don't tell me that my best friend's a menace

She might wind up in a book written by Guinness
As nutty as the day she was born
It's all right with me, if she longs to be
Shut up, shut up
Call her name in the air and she'll soon be there

If you want her to be

Round me a bend and I'm needin' a friend she comes to me
Shut up, shut up
