GUEST,Larry Saidman Songs about gender differences (21) Lyr Add: THE GIRL WANTS TO BE WITH THE GIRLS 23 Apr 13


Don Wise: I looked up your lyrics, and the closest thing I could find to it was: Girls and Boys by The Pet Shop Boys....which appears to be about the sexual behaviour of transgendered people. Interesting...I guess it's on the 'fringe' of what I'm looking for.

But I did find another one by Talking Heads called "Girls Like to Be with the Girls". From their 1978 album "More Songs About Buildings and Food". It's a great description of how we males sometimes get so confused by the way women relate to each other....and to us.

Songwriters: BYRNE, DAVID
The girls don't want to play like that,
They just want to talk to the boys.
The just want to do what is in their hearts,
And the girls want to be with the girls.

(chorus)

And the boys say, "what do you mean? "
And the boys say, "what do you mean? "
Well there is just no love,
When there's boys and girls.
And the girls want to be with the girls,
And the girls want to be with the girls.

Girls want things that make common sense,
The best for all concerned.
They don't want to have to go out of their way,
And the girls want to be with the girls.

(chorus)

And the boys say, "what do you mean? "
And the boys say, "what do you mean? "
Well there is just no love,
When there's boys and girls.
And the girls want to be with the girls,
And the girls want to be with the girls.

Girls are getting into abstract analysis,
They want to make intuitive leap.
They are making plans that have far reaching effects.
And the girls want to be with the girls.

(chorus)

And the boys say, "what do you mean? "
And the boys say, "what do you mean? "
Well there is just no love,
When there's boys and girls.
And the girls want to be with the girls.
And the girls want to be with the girls.
