Ooh, good lovin' The girl's got plenty good lovin' Ask me how I know And I'll tell you so She used ta be my girl. I, I respect her When she was mine I used to neglect her Oh, she wanted more Than I could give But as long as I live She'll be my girl. She, she used ta be my girl She used ta be my girl. She had a charming personality The girl was so right for me She's my girl And if I had the chance Lord knows I'd take her back As a matter of fact Right away like today  .

Ironically the O'Jays' biggest selling single was the one that neither the vocal trio nor the on duo of Gamble and Huff thought would hit number one. Even frequent engineer Joe Tarsia had grounds to dislike the record; he thought it sounded technically dull, not enough highs. The Four Tops' 1981 number one R&B/number 11 pop single "When She Was My Girl" is both similar in title and tone.
