Someone's going to have to explain it to me I'm not sure what it means My baby's feeling funny in the morning She's having trouble getting into her jeans Her waist-line seems to be expanding Although she never feels like eating a thing I guess we'll reach some understanding When we see what the future will bring
I met her in a crowded barroom One of those typical Hollywood scenes I was doing my very best Bogart But I was having trouble getting into her jeans I punched an unemployed actor Defending her dignity He stood up and knocked me through that barroom door And that girl came home with me
Now baby's feeling funny in the morning She says she's got a lot on her mind Nature didn't give her any warning Now she's going to have to leave her wild ways behind She says she doesn't care if she never spends Another night running loose on the town She's gonna be a mother Take a look in my eyes and tell me brother If I look like I'm ready
I told her I had always lived alone And I probably always would And all I wanted was my freedom And she told me that she understood But I let her do some of my laundry And she slipped a few meals in between And the next thing I remember, she was all moved in And I was buying her a washing machine
My baby's feeling funny in the morning She says she's got a lot on her mind Nature didn't give her any warning But she's feeling better about it all the time She says she's ready for some meaning After all of her running around Well bless my soul, she's got a rock-and-roll band man Thinking 'bout settling down

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
