Dan Calder Lyr Req: A My Name is Alice (9) Lyr Add: 80'S LADIES 12 Oct 98

Just in Case:


We were three little girls from school
One was pretty, one was smart, and one was a borderline fool
Oh, she's still good looking
That woman hasn't slipped a bit
And the smart one used her head
She made her fortune
And me I cross the border every chance I get

We were the girls of the 50's
Stone rock and rollers in the 60's
And more than our names got changed
As the 70's slipped on by
Now we're 80's ladies
There ain't been much these ladies ain't tried

We've been educated, we got liberated
And that's complicated matters with men
Oh we've said I do and we've signed I don't
And we've sworn we'd never do that again
Oh we've burned our bras and we've burned our dinners
And we've burned at candles at both ends
And we've got some children who look just like
The way we did back then

Oh but we're all grown up now
All grown up
None of us can tell you quite how

Repeat Chorus

A-My name is Alice, I'm gonna marry Artie
We're gonna sell apples and live in Arkansas
B-My name is Betty, I'm gonna marry Bobby
We're gonna sell beans and live in Brazil
C-my name is Connie, I'm gonna marry Charlie
We're gonna sell cars and live in California
