Radio XXI, side B, track 1: “Girlfriend” by Pebbles, #55 on The Top 88 of ’88

Radio XXI Pebbles - GirlfriendOh, Pebbles, what’s in a name?  Specifically, what’s in your name?  Pebbles. . .it’s not the name one would normally attribute to a sexy singer such as yourself.  Well. . .I will admit that when Pebbles Flintstone got older, she looked pretty good, but since we’d seen her as a baby, it’s kinda creepy.  Plus she’s a cartoon.  But that’s the thing, Pebbles, the only frame of reference for the name Pebbles is a Flintstones cartoon, a cereal based on said cartoon, and of course small tiny stones.  None of which personifies sexiness.  I’m assuming.  I don’t want to speak for everyone.  But then here you come along, Pebbles, sounding fine and looking fine, and suddenly, when I hear “pebbles”, I no longer think of a cartoon and/or stones, but I think of you.    So kudos to you, Pebbles, because now when I see a bunch of tiny stones, I get a little turned on.  And I’m not even a geologist. . .

“Girlfriend”

Girl

Make a list

Go out and find yourself a new bad thing

Girl

Ya need a trip

‘Cause he’s not worth the misery and pain

Just remember

How he would tell you lies
And then pretend that everything is so sweet

Why should you sacrifice
If you’re not satisfied
He’s just a canine runnin’ ’round in heat
(Ruff!)

Girlfriend

How could you let him treat ya so bad

Oh

Girlfriend

You know you were the best he ever had
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh, girlfriend

How could you let him treat ya so bad
(Treat ya, treat ya, treat ya)

Oh

Girlfriend

You know you were the best he ever had
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Girl

You must resist

Don’t let him squirm his way into your heart

No, girl
I must insist

You’ve got to stop the fool before he starts

Just remember

How he was so untrue
With all the tacky things he did to you

No need ta signify
‘Cause he’s not worth your time
You need to find someone that’s true to you, oooo!

Girlfriend

How could you let him treat ya so bad

Oh

Girlfriend

You know you were the best he ever had
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-ohwoo

Girlfriend

How could you let him treat ya so bad
(Treat ya, treat ya)
Baby, don’t be sad, no

Oh

Girlfriend

You know you were the best he ever had
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

To believe

Or not to believe
That is the question
It just takes a street degree

You’ve lied your last line
And I’ve cried my last cry
I’m out the door, baby
There’s other fish in the sea, yeah yeah yeah

Cute (cute, cute, cute)

Hey, Deele!
Sing!

To believe

Or not to believe
That is the question
It just takes a street degree

You’ve lied your last lie
I’ve cried my last cry
I’m out the door, baby
There’s other fish in the sea

Girlfriend

How could you let him treat ya so bad

Oh

Girlfriend

You know you were the best he ever had
Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-woah

Girlfriend
