DIETER BOHLEN - The Teens

SHE’S A GROOVER [1980 Hansa]

She’s just fifteen (if you know what I mean).
She’s a groover.
And she looks in little mirror - tight blue jeans.
She’s a groover.
And I feel like a clown when she puts me down.
She’s a groover.
But I feel alright if I see her tonight.
I’m gonna take a ride on the moon and fight.

Refrain:
She’s a lady of fashion when she’s on the scene.
She’s a little bit crazy (if you know what I mean).
I’m losing my heart (but she don’t wanna start) - and it’s a shame.
All the clothes (that she wears) are really fine.
And I’m hoping some day that I can make her mine.
I’m losing control. She’s deep in my soul - I can’t explain.

Whenever I phone, she’s never alone.
She’s a groover.
Every guy (at school) tries to show her he’s cool.
She’s a groover.
And she never said “Hi!” when I gave her the eye.
She’s a groover.
But I feel alright if I see her tonight.
I’m gonna take a ride on the moon and fight.

NEW YORK [1981 Hansa 7” 103 469 - Side A]

She was a backstreet dancer on the New Orleans,
and featured once or twice in the small magazines.
Doing alright, yes, she’s doing alright - she’s on Broadway.
And she has come a long way - right now, she’s a star
(ring on every finger and a big fancy car).
Doing alright, yes, she’s doing alright, got her name of the night.
She’s the queen of the night.

Refrain:
You’re in New York - you’re a star
(the sensation, yes, you are)
in the money and every part of you.

REFRAIN

You’re a diamond-smiling lady and a rage on the stage.
You know the transformation (I guess) you got - admit.
Doing alright, yes, you’re doing alright - you’re on Broadway.
You get 4 offers from the movies to appear on the screen.
You’re sleeping on it (baby) ’cause it’s not quite a scene.
Doing alright, yes, you’re doing alright, got your name of the night.
She’s the queen of the night.

AUTOMATIC WORLD [1982 Hansa 7” 103 955 - Side A]

Electronic hero in a world of Shangri-La -
you just put your money in, and you’re a superstar.
Vader Beams and Mars supreme in genuine plastic lights -
you’re a pinball wizard, and you’re a king tonight.
Replay, replay on the ball - the crowd is going wild
’cause you’re a modern leader, you’re a twentieth century child.

Refrain:
Automatic world, automatic world.
Push pull, plastic nights, automatic lights.
You’re a pinball hero. You’re a flipper king.
You can make that ball go - you can make it sing.

Speed around! The score goes up a thousand times or more.
Watch your right-hand side, my friend - this time it looks like war.
Head down on the homeward - straight, action, ready, fire!
Bonus points when red lights up - score is going higher.
Electronic hero now - this time you’re out to win.
Yes, you’re the nearest (now, my friend, you know) you’re ever been.
