glider emblem SotD: Cake - Short Skirt, Long Jacket


 Note: took the liberty of highlighting some stuff by putting them in bold. I apologize for any mistakes in the lyrics transcription, since I didn’t find any reliable source for them.

“Short Skirt/Long Jacket” by Cake:

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond.
I want a girl who knows what’s best.
I want a girl with shoes that cut,
And eyes that burn like cigarettes.

I want a girl with the right allocations,
Who’s fast and thorough,
And sharp as a tack.
She’s playing with her jewelry.
She’s putting up her hair.
She’s touring the facility,
And picking up slack.

I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket…

I want a girl who gets up early.
I want a girl who stays up late.
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity,
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape;
With fingernails that shine like justice,
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass.

She is fast, thorough,
And sharp as a tack,
She’s touring the facility,
And picking up slack.

I want a girl with a short skirt and a long… long jacket.

I want a girl with a smooth liquidation.
I want a girl with good dividends.
At Citibank we will meet accidentally,
We’ll start to talk when she borrows my pen.

She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest,
She wants a car that will get her there,
She’s changing her name from Kitty to Karen,
She’s trading her MG for a white Chrysler La Baron.

I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket…
