Modern Girl
He wakes and says hello, turns on the breakfast show

She fixes coffee while he takes a shower

Hey that was great, he said, I wish we could stay in bed

But I got to be at work in less than an hour

She manages a smile as he walks out the door

She's a modern girl who's been though this movie before



Chorus:

She don't build her world 'round no single man

But she's gettin' by, doin' what she can

She is free to be, what she wants to be

'N all what she wants to be, is a modern girl

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl



It looks like rain again, she takes a train again

She's on her way again through London town

Where she keeps a tangerine, flicks through a magazine

Until it's time to leave her dreams on the underground

She walks to the office like everyone else

An independent lady, takin' care of herself



chorus



She's been dreaming 'bout it all day long

As soon as she gets home, it's him on the telephone

He asks her to dinner, she says I'm not free

Tonight I'm going to stay at home and watch my TV



I don't build my world 'round no single man

But I'm gettin' by, doin' what I can

I am free to be, what I want to be

'N all what I want to be, is a modern girl



Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, she's a modern girl
