Title: I’ve got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates
Lyrics of I’ve got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates:
I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I rollerskated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like you’re avoiding me
I’m OK alone but you’ve got something I need, well
I’ve got a brand new pair of rollerskates
You’ve got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and
Try them on to see
I been lookin’ around awhile
You got something for me
Oh, I got a brand new pair of rollerskates
You got a brand new key
I ride my bike, I rollerskate, don’t drive no car
Don’t go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don’t drive, I been all around the world
Some people say I done all right for a girl
I asked your mother if you were at home
She said yes, but you weren’t alone
Oh, sometimes I think that you’re avoiding me
I’m OK alone but you got something I need, well
