"Prisstina" as written by and Corin Lisa Tucker Carrie Rachel Brownstein....
She was a very good girl
Did all her homework in school
Always came home with top marks
Teachers said you will go far
So she buried her nose in her books
And she never had time for those looks
For the boys had noticed her frame
Had grown into a figure number eight

Call her your Prisstina
Would you put her under glass?
Would you like to study?
'Cause she's got such perfect class
Oh, you want to tempt her
With your dirty rock n' roll
Call her your Prisstina
'Cause she's such a pretty girl

She went on to study ivy-league
And to rack up points for her degree
While the other girls fondled their dates
She fooled around with her Bunsen plate
But one night she was walking around
She passed a club with music so loud
She wondered what it would be like
To stay out with a co-ed all night

Call her your Prisstina
Would you put her under glass?
Would you like to study?
'Cause she's got such perfect class
Oh, you want to tempt her
With your dirty rock n' roll
Call her your Prisstina
'Cause she's such a pretty girl

The party's already started and the music's drifting in
Don't wait on your fairy godmother
She's late on her way to you
Should you trust that old Prince Charming
You know he never did you any good
But have yourself a ball, Prisstina, do all the things I would!

Call her your Prisstina
Would you put her under glass?
Would you like to study?
'Cause she's got such perfect class
Oh, you want to tempt her
With your dirty rock n' roll
Call her your Prisstina
'Cause she's such a pretty girl

She will go to the head of class
And all you boys need to get a late pass
'Cause she'll leave those dull lads behind
Yeah that girl is ahead of her time

    General CommentI just love this song. To mean it's about this girl who's just at the top of the world and who no one can seem to take down. Though she probably wishes she were like others she is ahead of her time as pointed out in the end. I dunno...it's just some of what I think. I'm not gonna go way in depth...but I just wanted to leave a comment for this great song.

    General CommentYes definitely a pretty straightforward meaning to this one... I'm just posting because I wonder if anyone knows the lyrics that aren't included in the book? There are some barely audible lines by Carrie during the chorus, and the guy who does keyboards also sings a part during the bridge that sounds like "she's drunk enough" or "she's drugged enough" (?!) though that is most likely not what he's singing... any thoughts?

    My OpinionI love this song; I can't quite tell if they're chastising her for not "living life", or if they're applauding her for putting her studies ahead of "fun". Either way, I adore it. I can identify with Prisstina's dilemma; everyone around me is having a lot of fun, but at what cost?
