Lyrics
Those silk shiny stockings
That I wear when I’m with you
I wear cause you told me that you
You really dig that crazy hue
When are we out for a dance
Do you think of our romance?
Oh no, you take a glance
At those shiny stockings

And then come, come chick along
With great big stockings too
Ooh, you smile and you leave me
Well now, just what am I to do?
I guess I’ll have to find
A new kind of a guy
Who dig my great big stockings too
Ooh, yeah, yeah

Català – Mitges Brillants
Aquestes mitges brillants de seda
Que em poso quan estic amb tu
Les porto perquè em vas dir que
Realment t’agradava aquest to boig
Quan sortim a ballar
Penses en el nostre romanç?
Oh no, fas un cop d’ull
A aquestes mitges brillants

I aleshores ve, s’acosta una noia
Amb grans grans mitges també
Oh, somrius i em deixes
Bé doncs, senzillament, què he de fer?
Suposo que hauré de trobar
Un nou tipus de noi
A qui també li agradin les meves grans grans mitges
Oh, sí, sí
