The Secret's Out - I'm Just an Old Fashioned Girl




Just an Old Fashioned Girl


I'm just an old fashioned girl with an old fashioned mind
Not sophisticated, I'm the plain and simple kind.
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire.


I 'd like a plain simple car, a Cerise Cadillac,
Long enough to put a bowling alley in the back.
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire.


I'll stay weaving at my loom,
Be no trouble to my groom,
If he'll keep the piles of money mounting.
In our cottage there will be
A soundproof nursery
Not to wake the baby while I'm counting.


I like the old fashioned flowers, violets are for me -
Have them made in diamonds by the man at Tiffany.
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire.


I'm just a pilgrim at heart, oh so pure and genteel.
Catch me in Las Vegas while I'm at the spinning wheel!
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire.


I'll ask for such simple things when my birthday occurs:
Two apartment buildings that are labelled 'Hers' and 'Hers'.
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire.


I like Chopin and Bizet
And the songs of yesterday,
String quartets and Polynesian carols.
But the music that excels
Is the sound of oil wells
As they slurp, slurp, slurp into the barrels.


My little home will be quaint as an old parasol,
And instead of carpet I'll have money wall to wall.
I want an old fashioned house, with an old fashioned fence
And an old fashioned millionaire.

Hi Zendra, give me an old fashion girl anytime...those that have never watched 'Sex in the kampong' or 'Desperado Isteris' kind....
the ones who laugh with a hand over their mouth, the one who blushes easily, the ones who carry a hanky instead of box of tissues, the ones who know the difference between a ladle and a salad fork....no need carry credit cards on dates.

Ahhh, but on the hand, women who drive Jag E-types wear killer sarongs I think think more fun....
Ha ha. Have a nice day, Lee.
