  • Street's like a jungle
    So call the police
    Following the herd
    Down to Greece
    On holiday
    Love in the nineties
    Is paranoid
    On sunny beaches
    Take your chances
    Looking for

    Girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone you really love

    Avoiding all work
    Because there's none available
    Like battery thinkers
    Count your thoughts
    On one-two-three-four-five fingers
    Nothing is wasted
    Only reproduced
    You get nasty blisters
    Du bist sehr schan
    But we haven't been introduced

    Girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone you really love

    Girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone to really love

    Looking for girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone you really love

    Girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone you really love

    Girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone you really love

    Girls who are boys
    Who like boys to be girls
    Who do boys like they're girls
    Who do girls like they're boys
    Always should be someone to really love
