52 Girls Like That

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album Rapture of the Deep

The famous zoologist Dr. Desmond Morris is of the opinion that - since we became bipedal - a woman's breasts have replaced her buttocks. Not literally of course but as a means of allurement. The famous feminist Germaine Greer would probably disagree on the basis that Des isn't entitled to an opinion because he's a baboon. I'm still undecided.

Girls Like That

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

I'm in a bad spot babe
I can't hear what you say
I'd love to stop and talk
You keep fading away
Just the way she said it
Something in her tone
Always so convincing
But she's good on the phone
I'll wait until she's ready
That could be a while
She always takes her time
Then she turns up in style
Something not right
Didn't recognise the car
Women being what they are

There is no sense of reason
In a reasonable world
Makes any sense at all
To a reasonable girl
She said you know what I mean
But I couldn't understand
Didn't know what she said
I'm a reasonable man
It wasn't meant that way
I was only having fun
She looked me in the eye
But the damage was done
I got the vague impression
She was under my thumb
I looked the other way
And I had to succumb

Girls like that
I want girls like that
Girls like that
I like girls like that
