Roxette – Original Version 3:36

I’m a zombie in the moonlight
I’m sleeping when it’s daylight
I really should be alright, but I’m feeling kinda uptight
I’m messing with a neighbour who killed my amp and Fender
He looked so sweet and tender
It’s hard to tell his gender
Got coffee on the paper
My dog’s an alligator
I want you now and later

I got a crush, got a crush on you
Got a crush, got a crush on you

I’m renting the wrong movie
I’m laughing at the wrong guy
I’m driving on the wrong side
My brain is getting cock-eyed
The flag is never chequered
Can’t find my F-beat records
God, give a little loving
The money’s in the oven
Got dead flies in my Scotch with ice
My talents always vaporize
I want your bird of paradise

I got a crush, got a crush on you
Got a crush, got a crush on you

Crush! Crush! We got a good thing going on
Crush! Crush! Such a good thing going on

I’m freezing in the summer
I’m sweating in the winter
No middle in the centre
No colours in the printer
No treatment at the pharmacy
No lessons learned from history
No future in the factory
No meaning in the poetry
No changing in the weather
No Elvis in the leather
I want you now or never

I got a crush, got a crush on you
Got a crush, got a crush on you

I got a, got a, got a crush on you
On you
I got a crush, got a crush on you
Got a crush, got a crush on you
