  • Lyrics: Upon Seeing Simone Another new year at the bottom of the Body Shop we were waitin’ to toast our dull little lives when the wind blew her in from the corner of the parking lot I knew there’d be trouble when I glanced at the wives. She had a tube top, double stop and switchblade eyes her hair cut like a man and adolescent thighs She said, “It’s a long way from New York City, but I found the fare for a Greyhound Bus. So don’t say that you missed me or tell me I’m pretty. There ain’t a man here who hasn’t known my sweet touch.” And we said Hey na na Hey Na Na Upon seeing Simone all the girls got up Upon Seeing Simone all the boys got hard Upon Seeing Simone everybody’s worried...Upon Seeing Simone. Satisfied with my alibi, safely keeping my back to the door The love of my life, my virtue, my wife-- I swear I’ve never seen Simone here before. Now all hell’s breakin’ loose all over the place--even the minister’s gettin’ slapped in the face. It’s a long way from New York City, but she found the fare for a Greyhound Bus. So don’t say that you missed her or tell her she’s pretty. There ain’t a man here who hasn’t known her sweet touch. And we said Hey na na Hey Na Na Upon seeing Simone all the girls got up Upon Seeing Simone all the boys got hard Upon Seeing Simone everybody’s worried...Upon Seeing Simone. Now Simone’s comin’ right for me; here comes one leg, two leg and I’m waitin’ on three I never have the words, don’t know what to say... I’ve got a wife and two kids and an IRA. But It’s a long way from New York City, I see you found the fare for a Greyhound Bus. It’s so good to see you again--Let’s drink to something, hell let’s drink to us. And everybody said Hey na na Hey Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Upon seeing Simone all the girls got up Upon Seeing Simone all the boys got hard Upon Seeing Simone everybody’s worried...Upon Seeing Simone.
