Lyrics

She's got an American accent?
From her head to her toes?
If she's involved in an accident?
You wouldn't see her underclothes??
She is perfectly spotless?
A fact that sticks out a mile?
But people have got more talent
But this little lady's got style??
Style, style
See her when she's walking?
She's got style, style?
Even when she's making me say?

She was born on the wrong side?
Of those imaginary tracks?
People used to divide each other?
Into two convenient packs??
She became a survivor?
Always armed with a smile?
You've only got to look at her picture to know?
That this little lady's got style??
Style, style

See her when she's talking?
She's got style, style?
Even when she's staying up late?
As an only child?
In a hostile world?
Her only chance?
Was to run away?

She's got style, style?
See her when she's walking?
She's got style, style,?
Even when she's taking a break
Style, yeah, style?
I see her when she's talking?
She's got style, style?
Even when she's staying up late.

She's got style peeping out of her pockets
She's got style sticking out of her stockings
She's got a style, a different style
Baby let me love you for a while
Come now baby let me love you with a different style.
