“Well I met this girl
for the first time on Saturday night
Standing in the queue at the Odeon alright
Oh I took her by surprise
When I gave her one of my lines
She started smiling at me real fine, ha
That’s when I said

Can I sit next to you girl
can I sit next to you girl
Can I sit next to you girl
can I sit next to you girl
Can I sit next to you?

Intermission, we were doing alright
‘Til this guy came up and stood by her side
Oh I took him by surprise
When I gave him one of my lines
She started smiling at me real fine
And that’s when I said

Can I sit next to you girl
can I sit next to you girl
Can I sit next to you girl
can I sit next to you girl
Can I sit next to you
can I sit next to you
Yeah, I wanna
So let me!

Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you
and then take you home
Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you, lick your ear
Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
C’mon!

Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you, girl
can I sit next to you, girl
Can I sit next to you, girl, can I?”.

Citazioni.

Can I Sit Next to You, Girl is the debut single by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, issued on 22 July 1974. On 26 August 1974, the song peaked at number 50 on the Aria charts. This version has lead vocals performed by Dave Evans prior to his being replaced by Bon Scott, as well as drums by ex-Masters Apprentices member Colin Burgess, and bass guitar by ex-The Easybeats member George Young (older brother of band cofounders Malcolm Young & Angus Young; co-producer). Originally, AC/DC‘s first bassist, Larry Van Kriedt, played the bass parts, but George recorded his own over them later. In 1975, after Scott joined, the group re-arranged and re-recorded the song as the seventh track on their Australia-only album T.N.T., released in December 1975, and as the sixth track on the international version of High Voltage, released in May 1976. The title of this version of the song removed the comma, becoming “Can I Sit Next To You Girl“.
Written by Malcolm and Angus Young, it was AC/DC‘s first original song. The Evans version was released as a single in Australia, and the band performed the song with Evans on the TV show Countdown. The musical arrangement of Evans’ version is different from Scott’s and it has never been officially released outside Australia (though it is now widely available on the internet, on sites like YouTube). This song was often covered at live shows by controversial Australian sleaze rock band Candy Harlots and appeared on their 1992 single “Sister’s Crazy“. The song’s performance on The Last Picture Show was made into a music video, released only in Australia in 1974. Peter Clack (drums) and Rob Bailey (bass) appeared in the video, even though they were not featured on the recording”.
