Cyndi Lauper - Girls just want to have fun






This was a huge part of '80s culture. Not only did the song became an anthem for female attitude, but it set fashion trends as the video showed Lauper wearing bright, outrageous clothes that looked like they came from a thrift store (they often did).

LYRICS

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 want to 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 want to have fun,
Oh girls just want to have,

That's all they really want,
Some fun,
When the working day is done,
Girls they want to have fun,
Oh girls just want to have fun,

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 want to have fun,
Oh girls just want to have,

That's all they really want,
Some fun,
When the working day is done,
Girls they want to have fun,
Oh girls just want to have fun,
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun ...

I didn't know that group. I must admit it's a good version, but nothing compares to Cyndi Lauper's. This song is meant to be sung by a girl!
