"(She Thinks She's) Edith Head" as written by and John C./linnell Flansburgh....
Back in high school I knew a girl
Not too simple and not too kind
We both grew up but I heard she changed
From a New Wave fan to another kind

She thinks she's Edith Head but you might know she's not
The accent in her speech, she didn't have growing up
She thinks she's Edith Head or Helen Gurley Brown
Or some other cultural figure we don't know a lot about

It's been years since I moved away but at Christmas I come home
I saw her reflection in the window of a store
She was talking to herself. Not too simple and not too kind
I walked on by. It was complicated and it stuck in my mind

She thinks she's Edith Head but you might know she is not
The accent in her speech, she didn't have growing up

She thinks she's Edith Head
She thinks she's Edith Head now
