The Rick Springfield Conundrum

So I heard Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield on the radio yesterday, and I was reminded of the long held debate of “Just what DOES he say?” The one line in the chorus can be interpreted as “Where can I find a woman like that” or “Why can’t I find a woman like that”. Both make sense in the context of the song, and both sound extremely similar when sang to that particular tune. Googling the lyrics leads to the answer being “where can I”, but I’m still not convinced. Listen for yourself and weigh in with your comments.
