Lyrics:
The Girl (Beck remix) [Version (a)]:

He's sleeping in his shoes
And dreaming of the worst
Living dirty lies
Believing in reverse
He'd break into the church
To burglarize the father
Gettin' older by the second
If seconds even bother

Oh but the girl
The girl
The girl
The girl

He hide behind the look
That's written in the eye
He's lower than the rain
Cause it's falling from the sky
Like a man without a mother
A choice without a chance
He's digging up the dead
Expecting them to dance

Oh but the girl
The girl
The girl
The girl

1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4

Ahhh
Ahhh
Ahhh
Ahhh

He's sleeping in his shoes
And dreaming of the worst
Living dirty lies
Believing in reverse
He'd break into the church
To burglarize the father
Gettin' older by the second
If seconds even bother

Oh but the girl
The girl
The girl
The girl

Ahhh
Ahhh
 
The Song:

This is a song by Dr. Dog. The original is on the album, We All Belong. Beck remixed it, and they put his remix on a 12". I haven't heard the original to know how much Beck did to it, but it does sound like a mostly typical Beck remix (crunchy drums, emphasize the vocals).

Beck had put Dr. Dog on his "best albums of the year" list in 2005.
