Needle In A Haystack Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

Well, well, I once believed
All fellas were nice
But, girls, listen to me
And take my advice

A-girls, you'd better get yourselves
On the right track
'Cause finding a good man
Girls is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
A-what did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

Girls, those fellas are sly, slick and shy, yeah
Oh, don't you ever let them catch you looking starry-eyed
They'll tell you that their love is true
And they'll walk right over you

Now, girls, you'd better know these things
A-right off a-the bat
'Cause finding a good man
Girls, is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

Well, now girls, I say
I'm tellin' you the natural facts
'Cause finding a good man
Girls, is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

I'm telling you, girl
You'd better look before you leap
Still water sometimes is very deep
You'll be in sorrow when you discover
That you're just his pastime lover

Girls, you'd better know these things
A-right off a-the bat
'Cause finding a good man
Girls, is like finding a
(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

I say you'd better take heed
(Needle in a haystack)
And listen to me
(Needle in a haystack)

You'd better play hard to get
Or you're gonna regret
The day you were born, yeah
A-when he leaves you alone

I bet, you'd better regret
Oh, you'd better regret
