Jenny came over and told me about Brad
He's such a hairy behemoth she said
And dumb as a box of hammers
But he's such a handsome guy
And I opened up and I told her about Larry
And yesterday how he asked me to marry
I'm not giving him an answer yet
I think I can do better

So we laughed, compared notes
We had a drink, we had a smoke
She took off her overcoat
I kissed a girl
I kissed a girl

So she called home to say she'd be late
He said, he worried but now he'd feel safe
I'm glad you're with your girlfriend,
Tell her "Hi" for me
then I looked at you, you had guilt in your eyes
But it only lasted a little while
And then I felt your hand above my knee

And we laughed at the world
They can have their diamonds
And we'll have our pearls
I kissed a girl
I kissed a girl

I kissed a girl, her lips were sweet
She was just like kissing me
I kissed a girl, won't change the world
But I'm so glad
I kissed a girl

And we laughed at the world
They can have their diamonds
And we'll have our pearls
I kissed a girl (for the first time)
I kissed a girl (and I may do it again)
I kissed a girl
I kissed a girl

I kissed a girl, her lips were sweet
She was just like kissing me (but better)
I kissed a girl

I kissed a girl, won't change the world
But I'm so glad
I kissed a girl (for the first time)
I kissed a girl (won't be the last time)
I kissed a girl
I kissed a girl

Jill Sobule is much better than this song. They played songs from her last album a lot on WFUV (NY folk/americana station) and every time the DJs said "Jill Sobule" after a song I'd do a double take, cuz all I ever knew were this song and Supermodel, and her other songs that I've heard are so much better than either of those tunes.
...sweet little song...
How weird... I just read an online news story that Jodie Foster has just come out of the closet, finally (although apparently it's last week's news, and she didn't state it directly). Here's to Jodie! :cheers:

Well, whoopdee-friggin-ding.
Context: While at a girl's Catholic school here in Denver, I believe.

Next up: Two Nice Girls' "I spent my last ten dollars on birth control and beer"... Ms. Sobule is great. This song is not representative of her catalog, she's more like 'Ani meets Phranc'. Speaking of which, since Bill's apparently starting a 'lesbian set', it'd be great to hear some Phranc. She wrote what may be the saddest song EVER, called 'Miriam and Esther', about her grandmothers. Saw her at Rice University years ago, and that song brought the entire house to tears. c.
oh my god, you just sent me through the lesbian twilight zone. :clap:
Wahooo! Great!!! Seems to be very important for Jill. But was it necesary to make a song about it? :wink:
Woo-hoo!!! 80's hit me!! Yay! And truly, I hadn't heard this litle gem like in at least 10 or 15 years.. Fun! :dance:
Well, the cynic in me wants to retort, so you kissed a girl --was it so revolutionary you had to write a song about it? But the more generous side of me says who cares? it's a cute song and a sweet little tune. She doesn't have to be Judith Butler, does she?
WTF? I thought this was in some permanently inaccessible archive. Too bad.
I love kissing girls...

Well I don't know where the hell I was but I literally heard this for the first time just about 2 weeks ago. Cute song.
Indigo Girls. Ani Difranco. For being into computers, you can't spell. As for this song... meh. IG and Ani are much better. Wack-A-Mole wrote:
Well I guess I'm a fool for girls that sing about liking girls. I like the Indego Girls and Annie de Franco also. I mean I really like their music no matter what the subject matter is. As an old fart from the hippie sixties I guess that I reallly like the rebellious fresh nature that these wormen bring to their music. Their sexuality issues just goes past me as I'm too into computers to even care. :bounce:
I love this. Makes me smile.
God! I haven't heard this song in forever...and it's as annoying now as it was then...
Just discovered this artist. How intelligent! And what catchy music. This song is a winner. I'm all for liberating kisses.
novelty act.
:bounce: I like it! Most enjoyable :bounce: It is a fun, feel-good thing. Kinda like kissin a girl that too is fun and most enjoyable. :hug: :p :D tee hee
well I didn\'t like it back then and hearing it again......I still don\'t like it. :roll:

I just burst out laughing when the chorus came in. This song rocks! :lol:
Great Artist, would like to hear more. :clap:

Clued into the words 3/4 of the way through. Up until then I was just enjoying the tune. I\'ll have to pay attention next time it gets played. ;) I think I like it though.
I like it!!!
This is right up there with (and VERY different from) \"Supermodel.\" You go, Jill! KISS THAT GIRL! RRROWWWW! :hug:
