What is Beck saying in "Girl"???

Ok so the new Beck song "Girl" is great. But what the deuce is he saying in the main chorus part.

"Hey... My _____ Girl"

Someone thought it was "summer" girl but I don't think so. And I can't find anyone who lists that word, even at beck.com

She's a mystery to me...

I think it's "slant-eyed" and that's why it's not in print anywhere.

It's "Sun-eyed Girl" Took me forever to figure it out, now it sounds obvious.

You realize that he is a serial killer in the song.

I was wondering the same thing myself, I suppose a lot of people are
thanks for solving the mystery. I like the film clip, it reminds me of old MAD magazines.

the next time this happens just put your TV on mute and let the captions tell you exactly what he is saying.

I do it all the time.

I thought it was "Southern".

Anywho, I've not read the lyrics to this song...it deals with a serial killer?

Well considering the album is titled 'Guero' and it has a whole heap of Spanish lyrics throughout, I thought it was something in Spanish... sonaye, sonnet, sunni... I dunno? Sun eyed seems stupid to omit from the lyrics...

when the album leaked, the song was called 'summer girl' so I thought it was summer and didn't give it further thought.

whatever ponce labled the tracks could have been completely faulty, though.
