This song is by The Velvelettes and appears on the compilation Hitsville USA: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971 (1992).

Well well, I once believed all fellas were nice
But girls, listen to me, take my advice
Girls, you'd better get yourselves on the right track
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a

(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)
(She-doop, she-doop, la la, he-doop, she-doop, la la)

Girls, those fellas are sly, slick and shy
So don't you ever let 'em catch you look in' starry-eyed
Well, they'll tell you that their love is true
But they'll walk right over you

Now girls, you should know these things right off the bat
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a

(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)
(She-doop, she-doop, la la, he-doop, she-doop, la la)

(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

Girls, you should know these things right off the bat
'Cause findin' a good man, girls, is like findin' a

(Needle in a haystack)
What did I say, girls?
(Needle in a haystack)

I say you'd better take heed
(Needle in a haystack)
Listen to me
(Needle in a haystack)
(She-doop)

You'd better play hard to get
Or you're gonna regret
The day you were born, girl
When he leaves you alone, girl

Good guys are like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
Girls, they're like findin' a
(Needle in a haystack)
