Tired Of Being Blonde

Album: Spoiled Girl (1985)
Charted: 70
  • She left the credit cards under her goodbye note
    "All of these are yours, goodbye" and that was all she wrote
    Keys to the Porsche she dropped on the floor in the den
    Left in the '70 Dodge that he drove her in
    She wasn't angry, she wasn't sad
    She was just leaving a life that a lot of women wish they had

    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of running around with the usual guys and gals
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of living up to all he expected
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of living a life that had only been planned by one
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of letting her dreams go neglected

    She used to love to know she rounded out his world
    She used to love to be all he ever loved in a girl
    He liked to buy her clothes that made her sexy and cute
    Guess she decided she'd been too long away from her roots
    She wasn't crazy, she wasn't mad
    She just knew in her heart they had drained her of all that she had

    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of all the platinum frustration
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of looking like a cutie on the cover of a magazine
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of chasing all the latest sensations

    She wasn't angry, no, no, she wasn't sad
    She was just leaving a life that a lot of women wish they had

    She was tired of being blonde
    Tired of living a life that had only been planned by one
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of coping with the desperation
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of fighting back the feeling inside that told her to run
    Tired of being blonde
    Tired of hiding her own inclinations Writer/s: LARRY RASPBERRY

  • Robbie from Elizabethtown, KyShould have been hit from Simon's ill-fated 1985 "Spoiled Girl" album. This song and the actual "Spoiled Girl" track were intended to be a cross over from Carly's adult contemporary "hell" she was stuck in ever since 1980's "Come Upstairs" and 1983's "Hello Big Man" into the more Madonna-ish pop scene of the day. Needless to say this alienated fans of her earlier work and went virtually un-noticed by it's intended audience due to lack of marketing on Epic's end.
