Baby's got a brand new hairdo, but doesn't she look so nice?
She said everything that she cares to, she's saying it not once but twice
She said it doesn't matter unless I say it matters
Well, I don't care about all that modern jazz
The girl that used to have it and the girl who still has
She's the girl that used to have it and the girl who still has

Baby's got a brand new hairdo, and doesn't she look so fine?
She said everything that she used to
Except she's picking your heart, not mine
She said "it doesn't matter unless I say it matters"
The pretty girls of Beak Street sit there flattered
I don't care about all that modern jazz
The girl that used to have it and the girl who still has
She's the girl that used to have it and the girl who still has

Baby's got a brand new hairdo, and doesn't she look so good?
She looks like Billy Boy Arnold, said I wish you would
I wish you would

Baby's got a brand new hairdo, I wonder what's left inside
She used to play me for the next fool before she learned how to be snide
She walks in the place and everybody scatters
I don't care about all the modern girls
The girl that used to have it and the girl who still has
She's the girl that used to have it and the girl who still has
She's the girl that used to have it and the girl who still has
She's the girl that used to have it and the girl who still has
She's the, she's the, she's the...
