Modern Girl.

*Turn on bimbo mode* I wanna be a Modern Giiiirrrrl. *Turns off bimbo mode*

Seriously though, I had a good laugh when I saw this music video of Sheena Easton's Modern Girl on youtube. It spoofed the original so well, yet remained true to the essence of the song.

Always nice to have some good mindless entertainment after the mental drain one inevitably experiences after a week at work. Such as boozing with friends. ^^

Sing along now, " I don't build my world 'round no single man. But I'm gettin' by, doin' what I canI am free to be, what I want to be. 'N all what I want to be, is a modern girl...."



Modern Girl - Sheena Easton

He wakes and says hello, turns on the breakfast show
She fixes coffee while he takes a shower
Hey that was great, he said, I wish we could stay in bed
But I got to be at work in less than an hour
She manages a smile as he walks out the door
She's a modern girl who's been though this way before

Chorus:
She don't build her world 'round no single man
But she's gettin' by, doin' what she can
She is free to be, what she wants to be
'N all what she wants to be, is a modern girl
Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl

It looks like rain again, she takes a train again
She's on her way again through London town
Where she keeps a tangerine, flicks through a magazine
Until it's time to leave her dreams on the underground
She walks to the office like everyone else
An independent lady, takin' care of herself

chorus

She's been dreaming 'bout it all day long
As soon as she gets home, it's him on the telephone
He asks her to dinner, she says I'm not free
Tonight I'm going to stay at home and watch my TV

I don't build my world 'round no single man
But I'm gettin' by, doin' what I can
I am free to be, what I want to be
'N all what I want to be, is a modern girl

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl

Boozing with friends - doing that with a Japanese friend I fancy next Thursday - I have no idea whether I will be legally sober enough the next morning to drive the mother to church....

Yep boozing with friends is always fun, boozing with friends you have the hots for (and hopefully with an option for more after all that booze) is even better.

Argh I doubt I'll be legally sober for the perfunctory good friday service too.
