The song was written by John Sebastian and was featured on the debut Chicory Tip
album, "Son Of My Father." Not for the first time Peter Hewson's adaptation of the
lyrics of the song differ from the original. We are producing John's original lyrics here.
John was a member of the Lovin' Spoonful who had hits including "Daydream",
"Summer In The City" and "Do You Believe In Magic."

After leaving Lovin' Spoonful John played harmonica for Crosby, Stills & Nash and
The Doors. He carved out a solo career and his third single was "What She Thinks
About" which was released on the Reprise label in 1970 (Reprise 0918).

Chicory Tip's version is very sympathetic to the original by John with the
exception of the moog being on the band's version, and the change in lyrics.
You can hear John's original version here.





All the things that man devises to help him do his thing
Amazing moon-shot rockets and little wheels that sing
The way his hands will sweat to get that daily bread
It's hard to believe he can't get it through his head


But he still can't figure out just what she thinks about
And he still can't figure out just what she thinks about

All the themes of man's illusions already here and gone
Somehow amidst confusion oh how he gets it on, yeah!

Chorus repeat

Well you say you've been around and you got it all together
And you're digging where it's at and you really feel groovy
Well, that's not quite true, but nice to meet you

Heard you spent time tryin' to figure out a reason
Why you couldn't get along but now the pain's easin'

It's alright, there is nothing frightening, just be mine tonight
Dream on, my man, you'll understand, what to do, what you say
Her world turns another way

But you still can't figure out just what she thinks about
And you still can't figure out just what she thinks about
