"My Sharona" was a power pop shot over disco's bow.

No offense to the Post, but I thought the Guardian did a little better job capturing a life in a snapshot. RIP.

The Knack was a great power pop band, not just My Sharona, but many more songs as well.

Ooh my little pretty one, pretty one.
When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?
Ooh you make my motor run, my motor run.
Gun it comin' off the line Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up.
Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch
of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

Come a little closer huh, ah will ya huh.
Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona.
Keeping it a mystery gets to me
Running down the length of my thighs, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up. Such a dirty mind.
Always get it up for the touch
of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

When you gonna give it to me, give it to me.
It is just a matter of time Sharona
Is it just destiny, destiny?
Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona?
Never gonna stop, give it up.
Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch
of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona

From :Good Girls Don't (But I Do)"

And it's a teenage sadness
Everyone has got to taste.
An in-between age madness
That you know you can't erase
Til she's sitting on your face.


Always wondered if I was hearing those lyrics right all these years. Guess I was.

“Good Girls Don’t,” which charted at No. 11, was considered raunchy in 1979. A “clean” edit changed the lyric “‘Til she’s sitting on your face” to “When she puts you in your place.”
