Modern Girl

Modern Girl

Sheena Easton

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 through 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
And all 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 the train again
She's on her way again through London town
Where she eats 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 him 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 gonna stay at home and watch my TV"

I don't build my world 'round no single man
But I'm (she's) gettin' by, doin' what I (she) can
I (she is) am free to be, what I (she) want(s) to be
'N all I (she) want(s) 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

[Repeat to Fade]
