My Sharona by the Knack

Oh my little pretty one, pretty one
When you gonna give me some time Sharona
When you make my motor run, my motor run
Gun it, coming off the line Sharona

*Never gonna stop, give it up
Such a dirty mind, always get it up
For the touch of the younger kind

My my my i yi woo
My my my my Sharona

Come a little closer huh, ah will ya huh,
Close enough to look in my eyes Sharona
Keeping it a mystery gets to me
Running down the length of my thighs Sharona

(Repeat *)

When you gonna get to me
Get to me
Is it just a matter of time Sharona
Is it just destiny, destiny
Or is it just a game in my mind Sharona

(Repeat *)

My Sharona
Sharona admits it was written for her as an underage girl

Sharona Alperin was the girl who inspired The Knack’s Doug Fieger to write My Sharona. And “girl” is the operative term. Sharona confirmed in an interview (

“We were both in relationships when we met. I was maybe 16, 17, he was about nine years older than me [25] and was introduced to me at that time by a girlfriend. When he met me, I remember him gasping. And before you knew it, he told me that he was in love with me. He ended that relationship, but it took me one year to leave my relationship.”

Sharona is a real estate agent now and uses the domain Fieger died from cancer in 2010. If you want to see one way the world has changed in the past three decades, imagine how people would react now if a 25-year-old singer was with a 16-year-old groupie.
