Lyrics Quiz: Girls

Can you name these songs about girls? While you're working on the list, stream "Graffiti Girl" by Mark Pickerel.

  1. I've got so much honey, the bees envy me. I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees.
  2. Oh mother dear, we're not the fortunate ones.
  3. You know, I feel so dirty when they start talking cute. I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot.
  4. The diving man's coming up for air, 'cause the crowd all love pulling Dolly by the hair. By the hair.
  5. Ten silver saxes, a bass with a bow. The drummer relaxes and waits between shows.
  6. You've made me acknowledge the devil in me. I hope to God I'm talkin' metaphorically. Hope that I'm talkin' allegorically.
  7. Friday night and I need a fight. My motorcycle and a switchblade knife. Handful of grease in my hair feels right. But what I need to make me tight are...
  8. Some boys try and some boys lie but I don't let them play. Only boys who save their pennies make my rainy day.
  9. Is there anybody going to listen to my story, all about the girl who came to stay?
  10. Hurry up, hurry up and wait. I stay awake all week and still I wait. I got the blues. Please come see, what your loving means to me.
  11. You're such a beautiful fish, floppin' on the summer sand. Lookin' for the wave you missed when another one is close at hand.
  12. High and dry, out of the rain. It's so easy to hurt others when you can't feel pain.

a - The midwest farmers' daughters really make you feel all right.
b - You're always dancing down the street, with your suede blue eyes.
c - And it's a teenage sadness everyone has got to taste, an in-between age madness that you know you can't erase.
d - So give me all your money, give me all your gold. I'll buy you a house back in Zuma beach and give you half of what I own.
