Something So Right Lyrics

by Paul Simon

You've got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You've got the look of love light in your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
Till you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down

When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
And the last one to know

When something goes right
Oh, it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
Oh, I can't, I can't get used
To something so right
Something so right

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
And I've got a wall around me
That you can't even see
It took a little time
To get next to me

When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
And the last one to know

When something goes right
Oh, it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
Because it's such an unusual sight
Oh, I swear, I can't get used
To something so right
Something so right

Some people never say the words, "I love you"
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say those words, "I love you"
But like a child they're longing to be told

When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
And the last one to know

When something goes right
Oh, it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
Because it's such an unusual sight
I swear, I can't, I can't get used
To something so right
Something so right

Oh, something so right
