kritsina she don’t know i exist lyrics – catch 22

not long ago in my high school days
i watched a girl from so far away
and everytime she p*ssed me by
i turned my head away and quietly sighed.
and when she walked by her hair would dance,
a secret tango that only i could understand
and if she asked for the time of day
i’d look her in the eyes and quietly say:
chorus:
oh, kristina kristina do you have any clue who i am?
(h*ll no)
so listen up because i’ll tell you once
and i’ll explain myself the best that i can.
oh, kristina kristina you don’t know me so i’ll have to persist.
i’m kind of shy so don’t wonder why kristina she don’t know i exist.
from cl*ss to cl*ss i followed her,
but i swore i’d leave her undisturbed
and if she ever stopped by and turned around i got so nervous
and i stared at the ground.
and then one day in photography i found a contact
print that i could not believe and there she was
staring back at me so i took her home so quietly.
chorus:

oh, kristina kristina do you have any clue who i am?
h*ll no)
so listen up because i’ll tell you once
and i’ll explain myself the best that i can.
oh, kristina kristina you don’t know me so i’ll have to persist.
i’m kind of shy so don’t wonder why kristina she don’t know i exist.
[instrument solo]
1/17/98 it’s been a day that i’ve come to hate.
as i walked into the video store
there she stood as my jaw fell to the floor.
tapping her toe, waiting in line, with a movie
and another guy
why did i bother? why did i care?
about this girl named kristina behr?
oh, kristina kristina you’ll never get to know who i am.(your loss)
so this is goodbye so please don’t cry
and i’ll let you down as softly as i can.
kristina, kristina another name to cross off my list.
in another life it could have been nice
but kristina she won’t know what she missed.
