We-hell-I see him every night in tight blue jeans--
In the pages of a Blue Boy magazine
Hey I've been looking for a new sensation
I'm picking up--good vibrations--
Oop--she bop--

Do I wanna go out with a lion's roar
Huh, yea, I wanna go south n get me some more
Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine
They say I better stop--or I'll go blind
Oop--she bop--she bop

She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--bop,
I hope He will understand
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
Oo--oo--she--do--she bop--she bop

(whistle)...

Hey, hey--they say I better get a chaperone
Because I can't stop messin' with the danger zone
No, I won't worry, and I won't fret--
There ain't no law against it yet--
Oop--she bop--she bop--

She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--bop,
I hope He will understand
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
Oo--oo--she--do--she bop--she bop

This is one of those Top40 songs - I never understood why I like it.

Wow.  I hadn't ever looked at the lyrics but yeah.  That makes three songs I know of dedicated to the Solo Art.  Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" and Violent Femme's "Blister in the Sun".  Any others out there?  I'm sure there are...sinners {#Twisted} 
 
Jackson Browne - Rosie.

The Vapors' Turning Japanese would also fit into this musical tribute to onanism. Gotta hand it to 'em.

But to be clear. She is talking about masturbation right? 
 
I thought everyone knew that. It was pretty well known 35 years ago; I guess people forgot.

Naaaah - horrid. I'll accept 'True Colours', but not this. And if you play 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun', the PC goes out of the window.

Flash back to the video on MTV of her flying around the concert hall in a trash can.  Pretty funny.

The BEST EVER -- wait, maybe that\'s the hard drugs talking.
Please tell me I\'m only dreaming and that you\'re not really playing this. BLAAAAHHHHHGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!
She has such a range...you must listen to other songs and CD\'s...such as the Largo CD and the song she wrote for The Rugrats in Paris (yes, I\'m serious!). I sure there are others, but these are the 2 to come to mind. pbm 8^)
Uhg....gag. Cyndi has a good voice, but I generally disliked her music.
Cut it out. It hurts.
...well what can i say - this is really really bad music...
She Bop??? on RP?? I am not quite sure how to react. Thanks for making me pay attention, Bill! I am a child of the 80s so of course I like this song - just surprised to hear it here.
