GLORIA

Original Them version


Like to tell you about my baby
You know she comes around
She about five feet four
A-from her head to the ground

You know she comes around here
At just about midnight
She make you feel so good, Lord
She make you feel alright

And her name is G, L, O, R, I
G L O R I A (Gloria)
G L O R I A (Gloria)
I'm gonna shout it all night (Gloria)
I'm gonna shout it every day (Gloria)
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

She comes around here
Just about midnight
And she make me feel so good, Lord
I want to say she make me feel alright

Comes walking down my street
When she comes to my house
She knocks upon my door
And then she comes in my room
Yeah, and she make me feel alright

G L O R I A (Gloria)
G L O R I A (Gloria)
I'm gonna shout it all night (Gloria)
I'm gonna shout it every day (Gloria)
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Looks so good (Gloria), alright
Just so good (Gloria), alright, yeah
