Deborah was a Catholic girl She held out till the bitter end Carla was a different type She's the one who put it in Mary was a black girl I was afraid of a girl like that Suzen painted pictures Sitting down like a Buddha sat
Reno was a nameless girl A geographic memory Cathy was a Jesus freak She liked that kind of misery Vicki had a special way Of turning sex into a song Kamala, who couldn't sing, Kept the beat and kept it strong
Zilla was an archetype The voodoo queen, the queen of wrath Joan thought men were second best To masturbating in a bath Sherry was a feminist She really had that gift of gab Kathleen's point of view was this Take whatever you can grab
Seattle was another girl Who left her mark upon the map Karen liked to tie me up And left me hanging by a strap Jeannie had a nightclub walk That made grown men feel underage Mariella, who had a son Said I must go, but finally stayed
Gloria, the last taboo Was shattered by her tongue one night Mimi brought the taboo back And held it up before the light Marilyn, who knew no shame Was never ever satisfied Julie came and went so fast She didn't even say goodbye
Rhonda had a house in Venice Lived on brown rice and cocaine Patty had a house in Houston Shot cough syrup in her veins Linda thought her life was empty Filled it up with alcohol Katherine was much too pretty She didn't do that shit at all
Uh-uh, not Kathrine
Pauline thought that love was simple Turn it on and turn it off Jean-marie was complicated Like some French filmmaker's plot Gina was the perfect lady Always had her stockings straight Jackie was a rich punk rocker Silver spoon and a paper plate
Sarah was a modern dancer Lean pristine transparency Janet wrote bad poetry In a crazy kind of urgency Tanya Turkish liked to fuck While wearing leather biker boots Brenda's strange obsession Was for certain vegetables and fruit
Rowena was an artist's daughter The deeper image shook her up Dee Dee's mother left her father Took his money and his truck Debbie Rae had no such problems Perfect Norman Rockwell home Nina, 16, had a baby Left her parents, lived alone
Bobbi joined a New Wave band Changed her name to Bobbi Sox Eloise, who played guitar Sang songs about whales and cops Terri didn't give a shit Was just a nihilist Ronnie was much more my style Cause she wrote songs just like this
Jezebel went forty days Drinking nothing but Perrier Dinah drove her Chevrolet Into the San Francisco Bay Judy came from Ohio She's a Scientologist Amaranta, here's a kiss I chose you to end this list

Smitty from Seattle, WaThe tune of the humming between verses sounds an awful lot like Chad and Jeremy's "A Summer Song."

Ted from UsaThe Nails stole this song from a 1980 Magnavox television commercial. in the commercial the music is the same. the commercial rhymes the word "magnavox" with "bobby-sox". Here is a link to the commercial that the Nails stole from: https://youtu.be/UPX2EOkvHu4
Smartalek from BostonSuch a brilliant song -- one of those that just sits in the back of your head, dormant, for weeks, months, maybe years at a time, and then one fine day, you'll find it running through your inner ears. And of course, you have your own personal list of lyrics for it... don't you? You know you do.
