Radio XXXI, side B, track 7: “Forever Your Girl” by Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul - Forever Your GirlOh, Paula Abdul, you had me at “Hey baby”.  I thought that I knew what love was when I heard “Straight Up” for the first time.  But that was before you told me that you were going to be forever my girl.  Me.  The kid with the mullet and the thick glasses and the mustache yearning to be free and the no driver’s license.  Up against some guy who could potentially be offering you diamonds and pearls and possibly even the world.  Even up against a pretty daunting challenger such as this, you were still going to forever be my girl.  Until the mountains slid into the sea.  And you didn’t specify which mountains, and I knew that even if one mountain ground down to nothing, there would likely be other mountains rising up at the same time, so there was a good chance that you would be my girl for perpetuity.  Although “Your Girl For Perpetuity” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.  So we’ll go with your version, Paula Abdul.

“Forever Your Girl”

Hey baby

Ya got ta remember

I’m forever your girl (ooo ooo ooo)

Forever and ever
And ever and ever

You know I am

(Aaaaaaaaaaaa)

<awesome Paula Abdul jam>

Baby, pick your head up, head up
Come on and look me in the faaace

‘Cause I can tell that somethin’
Is bringin’ you down

(Why are you down)

Is it the rumor
That another boy
Wants ta take your place
(I hear he’s after your heart)
Have you been hearin’ the stories
They goin’ around
(All of my friends are talkin’)

Baby, just remember I gave you my heart

Ain’t no one gonna tear us apart

He could promise the moon
And the stars above
Even if he promised me the world

Just remember I’m forever your giiirl
(Hey baby)
He could promise the world
(Ya gotta remember)

You got ta remember
I’m forever your girl

(Hey baby)

Honey, listen to me, to me, to me
Your love is all I need

You should know that I don’t need nothin’
That money can buy

(Just promise you’ll never leave me)

So if a boy were ta come along
Try ta make me leave ya
(Girl, I’d go outta my mind)
There’d be no need to worry
I’m tellin’ you why
(I need to hear that you really love me)

Baby, doncha know that I love ya
And I’d never put nobody above ya

He could promise the moon
And the stars above
Even if he promised me the world

Just remember I’m forever your giiirl
(Hey baby)
He could promise the world
(Ya gotta remember)

Got ta remember
I’m forever your girl
(Hey baby)

When the mountains crumble into the sea
(Oh ho oh)

That’s the day
When someone will come between you and me

Baby, just remember I gave you my heart

(Tell me)
Ain’t no one gonna tear us apart

Baby, he could promise me diamonds

Even if he promised me pearls

Honey
You know I ain’t lyin’

Listen as I tell it to the world

You got ta remember, got ta remember
You got ta remember

Got ta remember
I’m forever your girl
(Heeeeey)

Baby, forever (baby forever)
And ever and ever

I’m forever, hey baby (hey baby)

He could promise the wooooorld

(Girl, ya know I love you)

(And I always will)

Hey baby

(If we live to forever, baby) Got ta remember
(I’ll be lovin’ you)
(I’ll be lovin’ you stiiiiiiillll)
Just remember I’m forever your giiirl
