She doesn't own a dress, her hair is always a mess If you catch her stealin', she won't confess She's beautiful, she smokes a pack a day, wait that's me, but anyway She doesn't care a thing about that, hey She thinks I'm beautiful. Meet Virginia
She never compromises, loves babies and surprises Wears hi-heels when she exercises Ain't that beautiful Meet Virginia
Well she wants to be the Queen Then she thinks about her scene Pulls her hair back as she screams I don't really wanna be the queen
Her daddy wrestles alligators, Mama works on carburetors Her brother is a fine mediator for the President Well here she is again on the phone Just like me hates to be alone We just like to sit at home, and rip on the President
Meet Virginia Well she wants to live her life Then she thinks about her life Pulls her hair back as she screams I don't really wanna live this life
She only drinks coffee at midnight, when the moment is not Right, her timing is quite unusual You see her confidence is tragic, but her intuition magic And the shape of her body unusual
Meet Virgina I can't wait to Meet Virginia, yeah e yeah hey hey hey
Well she wants to be the queen and Then she thinks about her scene Well she wants to live her life Then she thinks about her life Pulls her hair back as she screams I don't really wanna be the queen I, I don't really wanna be the queen I, I don't really wanna be the queen I, I don't really wanna live this

Christy Erie Pa from Erie,pa Maybe we should ask pat about his friend Freddy and where he got a lot of these lyrics and songs from
James from Southwick MaI think that Virginia , in the song, is actually a figment of his imagination . I believe Virginia is the girl of his dreams. The girl he wishes he would meet. Toward the end, there is a lyrics that says "I can't wait to.... meet Virginia" .
Terry from Grafon, WiThis song will always take me back to the age of 16, driving around in my ex-boyfriend Blake's blue truck. I hear the first few lines, and I can't help but close my eyes, take a deep breath, and look back on my teenage years. The cold Wisconsin air, the shift of the truck changing gears, him holding my hand as I sang this song under my breath....everywhere we went, we would hear this song. It reminds me of a guy falling for a girl when she is obviously less than perfect. He sees the beauty in all of her little quirks, and thinks they're all beautiful. Blake always managed to make me feel like I was someone important, and someone beautiful, and although I was different from a lot of girls my age, there was nothing wrong with that. That's what he loved about me. I will always treasure this song and it will always take me back to a time I will never forget :)
Jessie from Saldotna, AkA song can mean 100 things to 100 very different people but this song really touches me. I'd have to say it's one of my favorites.
Well she wants to be the queen Then she thinks about her scene Pulls her hair back as she screams I dont really wanna be the queen
This part of the song creates a image in my head that says "Hay, this is a girl with really low self easteam and her past doesn't help it."
I think Train did a amazing job with this song. I love it.
Matt from Ashland, VaThis Song Makes me think of a friend or old friend Kelsey...
He loves her for everything but she doesn't love herself...
She wants things she can't have but the people and things aren't her and she knows it... dispite it all and all her imperfections and qurks. she's beutiful. The writer loves her
Kim from Norfolk , VaI think that this song is about his imagined ideal girl. She's all these fabulous and sort of quirky things, but he is realistic too - he knows girls are sometimes frustrated and unhappy, but he loves that nonetheless. He "can't wait to Meet Virginia." She his ideal woman. Maybe she is an amalgam of women he's known or just things he'd have in a woman if he could design her.
Mickey from Mars, PaThis song is like something said by a man who really loves a girl for everything she does and doesn't do. It might be because I'm a writer, but I can see clear pictures of the couple, and her, and just everything. I get goosebumps listening to this!
Renee from New York, NyThis song is amazing.. it makes me wanna cry because it's so beautiful... and so damn true.
we all can relate
Lorena from Melbourne, AustraliaThis is song is amazing.. I first heard it when my sister played it to me about 3 years ago and I just came across it again recently.. I love the way this guy describes this girl, it's obvious he loves her deeply... its a good song to relate to when you're having a (deleted) day... lovee it!! -Lorena, Melbourne, AUS
Mandie from Spokane, WaMeet Virginia,? from Train?s first album, also inspires some unusual images about a woman who ?wears high heels when she exercises? and ?only drinks coffee at midnight.? This song, Monahan said, came from some of the ?interesting? people he?d met. ?I was new to San Francisco and I actually watched a woman play baseball in high heels and a long dress. I saw how confident women were, but also how self-conscious they were. It?s difficult to be a woman. I have incredible respect for women and the struggles they have in this man?s world. I was raised by an incredible woman and I?m in love with an incredible woman and I watch my daughter. It?s tough sometimes, I think, for a woman to be herself and want to be special but not really want to be the queen of anything - just herself - and not apologize for it. A woman friend of mine told me that the song always made her feel like she was allowed to think of herself as beautiful.? Now this was a quote straight from http://www.songwriteruniverse.com/train-123.htm. I totally agree, I have meet some great woman out there and I know as a indepent woman, its hard to live in this "man's wold" but I love how this song describes it! I love this song. I, along with every other woman out there have a lil Virgina inside too! So just keep beig you, no matter who stands in your way!
Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScThose lyrics are pretty amusing.
Valerie from Evansville, InAw, I love this song! It always makes me think of my friend Stephanie from junior high- it was her favorite song at the time. The lyrics are so amusing- "She smokes a pack a day, wait that's me, but anyway..."
Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, ScKate from san diego, I think i agree with your interpretation of the song. i first heard it when my sister was listening to it. I think she knew about the song before it really caught on. My sister's name is Ursula though, not virginia.
Kate from San Diego, United Statesi think the song is kinda obviously about a sad, eccentric girl
when she says she "i dont really wanna live this life" i think shes either contemplating suicide or stuck in a life she doesnt want but doesnt know how to fix it
the narrator is in love with her despite her problems
this is my fav song
Jim from South Bend, InI forgot to mention my mom's name...you guessed it, Virginia!
Jim from South Bend, InI think "Meet Virginia" was about my mom. I don't know how they knew her, but get this. She and I used to sit and rip on President Clinton all the time. She drank coffee late at night and I could never understand how she could sleep. She had severe scoliosis so her spine was actually shaped like an "S", (the shape of her body - unusual). "I don't really want to live this life", (here is the weird part), she died October 15, 1998, after a long illness, three days before I heard the song for the very first time. It had just hit the top 40 in South Bend.
Shawn from Loganville, GaOn Storytellers, Pat (the lead singer) said that he wrote this song about how beautiful women are without make up, and how he loves imperfection.
Keri from Lansing, MiThis song is about a girl who wants to be something that she is actually is not and then she relizes what she wants to do is actually not what she wants to do.
The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
The Frozen song "Let It Go" was recorded in 42 different languages for the movie's foreign releases. This earned it an entry in the 2016 Guinness World Records publication for "Most Languages Featured on a Single."
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
