Song Lyric Sunday: Girls Just Want to Have Fun

This feature was created by Helen Vahdati. The theme this week is “girls.” When I was in college, I didn’t like Cyndi Lauper’s voice or this song, but now, they seem to have grown on me. “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” is a great song to dance to because it has a strong, fast beat and some great instrumental accompaniment. Whether or not you’re a girl, I hope you’re having fun today.

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they wanna have fun
Oh girls just want to 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 want to have
That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh girls, they wanna have fun
Oh girls just wantna have fun (girls and boys wanna have fun, girls wanna have)
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to 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 want to have fun (girls and boys wanna have fun, girls wanna have)
They just wanna, they just wanna
They just wanna, they just wanna, oh girl
Girls they wanna have fun
They just wanna, they just wanna
They just wanna, they just wanna, girls
They just wanna, they just wanna, oh girls
Girls just want to have fun
When the working
When the working day is done
Oh when the working day is done oh girl
Girls, they wanna have funThey just wanna, they just wanna
They just wanna, they just wanna, oh girls
Girls just want to have funWhen the working
When the working day is done
Oh when the working day is done oh girl
Girls, they wanna have fun

  1. Reblogged this on Campbells World and commented:
    This is one of my favorite songs of my youth.
    Also, it’s one I used to play quite loudly at the end of the day during training at The Seeing Eye during the last week or so after all the retrains went home.
    Why?
    Cause I was the only student left on my wing and it was, well, Fun!
    LOL!
    Thanks Abbie for bringing up a great memory. Sorry this is late.
