Abba - Head over heels
Tekst en muziek: Benny Andersson en Björn Ulvaeus
(1981)






I have a very good friend
The kind of girl who likes to follow a trend
She has a personal style
Some people like it, others tend to go wild
You hear her voice everywhere
Taking the chair
She’s a leading lady
And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going



Head over heels
Breaking her way
Pushing through unknown jungles every day
She’s a girl with a taste for the world
The world is like a playing-ground where she goes rushing



Head over heels
Setting the pace
Running the gauntlet in her whirl of lace
She’s extreme
If you know what I mean



Her man is one I admire
He’s so courageous, but he’s constantly tired
Each time when he speaks his mind
She pats his head and says: “That’s all very fine”
Exert that will of your own
When you’re alone
Now we’d better hurry
And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going



Head over heels
Breaking her way
Pushing through unknown jungles every day
She’s a girl with a taste for the world
The world is like a playing-ground where she goes rushing



Head over heels
Setting the pace
Running the gauntlet in her whirl of lace
She’s extreme
If you know what I mean



You hear her voice everywhere
Taking the chair
She’s a leading lady
And with no trace of hesitation she keeps going



Head over heels
Breaking her way
Pushing through unknown jungles every day
She’s a girl with a taste for the world
The world is like a playing-ground where she goes rushing



Head over heels
Setting the pace
Running the gauntlet in her whirl of lace
She’s extreme
If you know what I mean
She’s just one of those who always has to do whatever she please



And she goes
Head over heels
