        Something happened
        I just don't understand
        Something happened
        It's making me feel mad

        Something happened you don't hear about
        at least I never did before

        Something happened
        I just don't understand
        Something happened
        I just don't understand
        Something happened
        It's making me feel mad, oh

        I never saw this on TV
        I never read it in no book
        ah

        Something happened
        I just don't understand
        hey baby, something happened

        I just don't understand
        something happened
        I just don't understand
        something happened
        I just don't understand
        something happened
        I just don't understand
        something happened

        Something happened
        I just don't understand
        Something happened
        It's making me feel mad

        I thought I knew a lot of things
        but I don't know a thing at all

        Something happened
        I just don't understand
        The things I hear and see
        don't seem the same
        The things I touch and feel
        are forever changed

        I've never felt this way before
        and I hope I never do again

        Something happened
        I don't know why or when
        oh, something happened

        I just don't understand
        something happened
        I just don't understand

        Doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
        something happened
        Doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
        something happened
        Doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
        something happened
        Doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo

These are the lyrics for Something Happened.
It's my personal transcription
but i think it's all right (more or less, hehe).


"Something Happened"

Something happened
I just don't understand
Something happened
It's making me feel mad
Something happened
You don't hear about
Oh, please that never did before
Something happened...

Something happened
It's making me feel mad
I never saw this on tv
I never read it in no book
It's Something happened...

Something happened
It's making me feel mad
I thought I knew a lot of things
But I don't know a thing, oh, oh, oh
Something happened
I just don't understand
The things I hear 'n' see   (I'm not very sure of the " 'n' ")
Don't seem the same
The things I touch 'n' feel
Are forever changed
I've never felt this way before
and  I hope I never do again
Something happened...


*I don't know if these are exactly the lyrics but, i think so.


---------------------------------------------------------------------


These are the lyrics for "Something" again,
i think now they're completed.



"Something Happened"   (More completed)

Something happened
I just don't understand
Something happened
It's making me feel mad
Something happened
You don't hear about
Oh, please that never did before
Something happened...

Something happened
It's making me feel mad
I never saw this on tv
I never read it in no book
It's Something happened...

Something happened
It's making me feel mad
I thought I knew a lot of things
But I don't know a thing, oh, oh, oh
Something happened
I just don't understand
The things I hear 'n' see   (I'm not very sure of the " 'n' ")
Don't seem the same
The things I touch 'n' feel
Are forever changed
I've never felt this way before
and  I hope I never do again
Something happened...
I don't what or when (this is the new line)
Something happened...
