“Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper

“I wanna be the one to walk in the sun. Oh girls they wanna have

I come home in the morning light
My mother says, “When you gonna live your life right?”
Oh, mamma, dear, we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls—they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells, “What you gonna do with your life?”
Oh, daddy, dear, you know you’re still number one
But girls—they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls—they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

Girls—they wanna
Wanna have fun
Girls wanna have

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they wanna have fun
Oh girls just wanna have

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls—they wanna have fun
Oh girls just wanna have fun,

Girls—they wanna
Wanna have fun
Girls wanna have

They just wanna
They just wanna
Girls
Just wanna
Girls just wanna have fun
They just wanna

Girls just wanna have fun
Just wanna
Just wanna
They just wanna
They just wanna
When the working day is done
Everybody
They just wanna
