I have a girlfriend (yeh, yeh, yeh)
And it's the first time (yeh, yeh, yeh)
I've fallen in love (yeh, yeh, yeh)
And I'm 29

It's all I could ask for, should have been wonderful, wonderful to me

Back from New York (yeh, yeh, yeh)
Moved into her place (yeh, yeh, yeh)

She gave me ice-cream (yeh, yeh, yeh)

It felt really nice

Now I'm so fat, I feel terrible about my looks

I have a girlfriend, I have a girlfriend, I have a girlfriend
But I'm still lost inside

During high school (yeh, yeh, yeh)
I hated all the girls in my class (yeh, yeh, yeh)

They were so nasty (yeh, yeh, yeh)
I thought I was gay

Things didn’t change, I was miserable till the day she found me

I have a girlfriend, I have a girlfriend, I have a girlfriend
But I'm still lost inside

"Girlfriends are not easy to find" said my mother, "Girlfriends are not easy to find" said my father, "especially the pretty ones" my grandma laughed at me

I had a girlfriend, I had a girlfriend
