Lyrics 

When people ask of me,

What would you like to be

Now that you’re not a kid anymore.

(You’re not a kid anymore)

I know just what to say,

I answer right away,

There’s just one thing I’ve been wishing for…

I want to be Bobby’s girl

I want to be Bobby’s girl,

That’s the most important thing to me…

And if I was Bobby’s girl,

If I was Bobby’s girl,

What a faithful, thankful girl I’d be.

Each night I sit at home,

Hoping that he will phone,

But I know Bobby has someone else

Still in my heart I pray

There soon will come the day

That I will have him all to myself…

I want to be Bobby’s girl

I want to be Bobby’s girl,

That’s the most important thing to me…

And if I was Bobby’s girl,

If I was Bobby’s girl,

What a faithful, thankful girl I’d be.

What a faithful, thankful girl I’d be.
