11 Suzy-Hang-Around

Written by: (B. Andersson / B. Ulvaeus)

Suzy was nine and I was ten
right at the time when boys like to think they’re men
she used to follow us from school
we really thought that she was a little fool
and one day we said to her
we don’t want to hurt you girl
but you’d better

Look for a friend of your own
Suzy-hang-around
better come back when you’re grown
Suzy-hang-around
nobody wants you around here and that’s for sure
so get off our playground and stay away
that’s all that we’ve got to say
Suzy-hang-around

Suzy ran home to mama’s arms
mama said look, she’s never done you no harm
so get off her back and let her be
why can’t you play together in harmony
we really didn’t know what to say
but as soon as she went away
we laughed and said

Look for a friend of your own
Suzy-hang-around
better come back when you’re grown
Suzy-hang-around
nobody wants you around here and that’s for sure
so get off our playground and stay away
that’s all that we’ve got to say
Suzy-hang-around
