"Miss Chatelaine" as written by K. D. Lang and Ben Mink....
Just a kiss just a kiss
I have lived just for this
I can't explain why I've become
Miss Chatelaine

Just a smile just a smile
Hold me captive just a while
I can't explain why I've become
Miss Chatelaine

Every time your eyes meet mine
Clouds of qualm
Burst into sunshine

Just a sigh just a sigh
Words my love just reply
I can't explain why I've become
Miss Chatelaine
Miss Chatelaine

Zing!!!

Just a smile just a smile
Hold me captive just a while
I can't explain why I've become
Miss Chatelaine

Every time your eyes meet mine
Clouds of qualm
Burst into sunshine

Just a kiss just a kiss
I have lived just for this
I can't explain why I've become
Miss Chatelaine

Miss Chatelaine
Miss Chatelaine
Miss Chatelaine
Miss Chatelaine

    General CommentGod I love this song, Not sure I fully understand it, I used to think it said "My Cheverolet" which wouldn't even make sence. Great song though, gotta love it.

    General CommentKD Lang, Canada's most prominent subversive lesbian singer from Calgary, well-known for being tomboyish and, while she definetly has style, hardly a beacon of contemporary fashion, was declared Miss Chatelaine in 1988. (Chatelaine being a Canadian women's magazine.) The song's literal: Why on Earth did she win Miss Chatelaine? Only her hairdresser knows for sure.

    General CommentIn addition to its literal meaning, it comes from an album of songs composed when lang was in love with a married woman. I think she's also saying, I can't believe I've become this person who is so undone by another, and by love in general, that a simple smile can mean so much.

    General CommentChatelaine is a lady of the castle in French. It is also a famous wine growing domain.

    I can find no evidence to suggest that Ms Lang was Ms Chatelaine in 1988.

    So, is she saying I don't know why I have become a soak? (Drunk),
    "Every time your eyes meet mine
    Clouds of qualm
    Burst into sunshine"
    That is certainly what happens when an alcoholic has a drink. Not for me to say that KD has any association with drink, those that know her better than I will know that.

    Just that the lyrics certainly don't match to the idea that she is confused about why she got the awarded a title of Ms Chatelaine.
