Rock Ballad of The Week: The Troggs “With A Girl Like You”

9 Comments

I want to spend my life with a girl like you,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
And do all the things that you want me to,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
‘Till that time has come that we might live as one
Can I dance with you,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba

I can tell by the way you dress that you’re so refined,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
And by the way you talk that you’re just my kind,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
Girl why should it be that you don’t notice me
Can I dance with you,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba

Baby baby, is there no chance
I can take you for the last dance
All night long, yeah, I’ve been waiting
Now there’ll be no hesitating

So before this dance has reached the end,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
To you across the floor my love I’ll send,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
I just hope and pray that I’ll find a way to say
Can I dance with you,
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba bah ba ba ba ba

  1. Oh, what a gem of a rock ballad! Thanks for sharing this lovely classic today, Syl!

  2. My computer at work broke and now I’m using one with no sound! I’ll have to make a note to check back when I’m home. I know the group but can’t place the song.
