Mystery Girl

Who is she? Where can I find her?
I ask you do you know her? Mystery girl
I ask you do you know her? Mystery girl

When can I be with her?
When can I see her?
I ask you do you know her? Mystery girl
I ask you do you know her? Mystery girl

What does she look like? I don't know
What does she look like? I don't know
What does she look like? I don't know

I ask you do you know her, mystery girl
I ask you do you know her, mystery girl!

When can I see her?
Cause when can I be with her?
I ask you do you know her? Mystery girl
I ask you do you know her? Mystery girl!

Date Recorded: 1986 (4-track, Montreal, Québec CANADA)

Song Notes: This song is a very fast rocking song with a good driving riff.  Listen to see how the long the singer can hold the note "girl!" This song was part of the first Vee Gates Montreal demo.  Trent came up with the title for this song, but accidentally copied the Elvis Costello song title.  Which do you like better?  hehe

Finally!  We have unearthed the sole Vee Gates video!  Not a live performance on tape (that show was lost!), but the video "Mystery Girl" from Super 8  that was filmed and directed by Rockin' Russian Rina (April 1989) as part of a Concordia University communications project.
