This next song is
Is dedicated to those American fighting girls!

That's right
Those American fighting girls
Who aren't afraid to take the law into their own hands.
To die if necessary!
To keep our cities safe from criminal scum.

The oingo boingo proudly salutes the American commando girls

Commando girls
Commando girls
Commando girls won't you come out tonight?
Commando girls won't you come out and fight?
Commando girls You'll never never catch them crying!

By daytime they're receptionists
Accountant girls so clean
Late at night they hit the streets
Soldiers with a dream.

When they go out they arm themselves
With kakis and fatigues
They're tough as nails and armed to the teeth
With automatic M-16s

Iconoclastic girls that know the plan
To finnish the job like no one else can
To fight so the city's safe for you and me

Oh!
Commando girls won't you come out tonight?
Commando girls won't you come out and fight?
Commando girls you'll never never catch them crying!

They prowl the streets in disciplined packs
Looking for acts of violence
Sweet little poison pussycats
They travel smooth and silent

And when they spot their guilty prey
They waste no time on busts
They stand their ground and open fire
Unload their might of justice

Oh!
Take no prisoners and leave no clues
Read all about it in the morning news
Nobody out there knows what really happened!

Oh!
Command girls won't you come out tonight?
Commando girls won't you come out and fight?
Commando girls you'll never never catch them crying!

[guitar solo]

When my little girl comes home at night
Exhausted from her fighting
When she unzips her camouflage tights
She always looks so inviting!

Slippery skin all covered with sweat
Shivering in the moonlight.
Smell the gunpowder and sweet hot breath
We're gonna have fun tonight!

Oh!
Under the covers it's hard to know
She risked her life just minutes ago
A stiff salute to their courage and their passion!

Commando girls...

[repeat this verse 3x]
Giddy up Giddy up Get 'em all right
Round em up round em up round em up tight
Ready now ready now ready for the fight
Shoot em up shoot em up shoot em in the night

Commando girls won't you come out tonight?
Commando girls won't you come out and fight?
Commando girls you'll never never catch them crying!

Never catch them crying!
Never catch them crying!
Commando girls...
Commando girls...
Commando girls...
Commando girls...
Commando girls...

    General CommentI like this song and I love Oingo Boingo, but I feel obliged to point out that tights generally *don't* have zippers.

    The line "Commando girls, won't you come out tonight?" echos "Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight?"

    General Comment"...tights generally *don't* have zippers." Haha, very true. Where is this song from? An album, a live performance...?
