"Girlie Action"

[ from the album "Stars Forever" (1999) ]

Lyrics

Look at Dawn, she's strapped on
A pair of inflatable David Cassidy knees

And another hundred bands just got off of the plane
Seeking attention, hungry for fame

My brother Benjamin he's a physician
But I was the conventional one ..... I'm a musician (I'm a musician)

I could have been the model I saw in the lift
If I hadn't been born with this terrible gift

Here in New York I'm just a drop in the ocean
What I need now is some incredible press promotion

Girlie Action
Satisfaction

Well Heidi does national, she crosses the zones
Felice is always wearing earphones

Vicky's got an office above Lafayette
And on a clear day you can see Tibet

Here's a cassette you'll love our sound
We're playing tonight at the Mercury Lounge in the round

Look at Dawn, she's strapped on
An extra-long Stephin Merrit nose (see how it glows)

Girlie Action
Satisfaction

And the man from the Voice doesn't want to know
Doesn't he dig thrash zydeco? Oh

And another hundred bands just got off of the plane
Seeking attention, hungry for fame
