Looking for a song. Might be Tom Petty.

Ok, I'm looking for a particular song. It sounded like it might have been Tom Petty, but I'm not sure. I don't know any definite lyrics, but I know the feel of the lyrics...

What I remember is something like,

"I fell in love with a girl who drank beer
she could hear things that I couldn't hear-
something something something something
something something something something

I fell in love with a girl who drank beer"

Ok, now I don't know if the above lyrics actually occur in the song, but I am pretty sure that the structure is like that - first line, in love with a girl who did something. Second line, rhymes with first line. Third and fourth lines, I don't know. Fifth line, repeat of the first.

The song that I'm thinking of had mutiple verses, each about a different girl who did a different thing with a different result. Kinda silly, but I remember quite liking it.

Anyone?

And no, not The Nails' "88 Lines About 44 Women". That's what half the people I have asked have come up with.

That's a good call. I'll bet I looked on the net for an hour for the answer and couldn't find it.

Song is called "Girl on LSD" and it's the bonus track on the CD-single for "You Dont Know How It Feels"


I know because I have it



edit: I should've read first and seen that it's been answered already, oops

Hey, mind passing along where you downloaded the tune? Never heard this one before, but would love to hear it. Thanks.

GIRL ON LSD

I's in love with a girl on marijuana
She said if i'm not stoned I don't wanna
But she got so paranoid
Her place I would avoid
I's in love with a girl on marijuana

I's in love with a girl on cocaine
She had everything going but her brain
We'd talk endlessy for hours
But by morning I'd go sour
I's in love with a girl on cocaine

CHORUS
Through extacy, crystal meth and glue
Found no drug compares to you
With all these pills
And all this weed
I don't know just what I need

I's in love with a girl on LSD
She'd see things i'd never see
She broadened her perspective
Then I got more selective
I's in love with a girl on LSD

I's in love with a girl who drank beer
Till bad breath and all she disappeared
She was blowing up real bad
But when she left I was still sad
I's in love with a girl who drank beer

I's in love with a girl on china white
We were married for a year one night
Her memory still lingers
Cause I burned all my fingers
I's in love with a girl on china white

I's in love with a girl who drank coffie
There was times when I couldn't keep her off me
That caffine got her going
But her ugly side was showing
I's in love with a girl who drank coffie

I's in love with a girl who was a dealer
I's afraid some body'd come and steal her
We never used to fight
But the phone rang day and night
I's in love with a girl who was a dealer

Sure as hell
She got popped by the big guys
