I'm in love with a TV star
She drove me home in her Lexus car
Like a dog but I don’t watch her show
Spend my time with the radio
Seen her dancing on the Sunset Strip
Bellbottomed jeans, and a-curvy hips
Seen her sitting there with her boyfriend
Good looking fella but he’s looking kinda thin

Christina
A la la la la
Christina
A la la la la
Christina
A la la la la
Christina
I love you so

Remember that day we played pool
I saw your bedroom and we ate barbeque
Bobby came from a trip downtown
Fifty up and forty down
Love you more than the sun and the sky
Gotta kiss and hug you 'fore I die
Something else that you ought to know to
Did something wierd

Christina
A la la la la
Christina
A la la la la
Christina
A la la la la
Christina
I love you so

I'm in love with a TV star
She drove me home in her Lexus car
Like a dog but I don't watch her show
Spend my time with the radio
Been watching TV as the years go by
I've seen 'em born, and I've seen 'em die
Something else you aught know to
I like a girl named Ellen more than you

Christina
A la la la la
Christina
A la la la la
Christina
A la la la la
Christina
I love you so

    General CommentChristina, I'm almost positive, is Christina Applegate. But for the life of me I don't know who Ellen is. Unless Ellen isn't a TV star and just a girl that he liked better than Christina Applegate.

    General Commentyeah I always thought it was Applegate and DeGeneres. The Good looking boyfriend who is "looking kind of thin", I've been told, is River Phoenix.
    Interesting Little Tid-bit: It is rumored that the night River died at the Viper club the Band "P" was on stage, which features Gibby Haynes from BHS and Johny depp (The co-owner of the Viper Room)

    General CommentMusixex, that's not a rumor, it's TRUE. So this is a sort of tribute to River Phoenix.

    General CommentI do not think the names really matter too much. This song is brilliantly catchy and easy to understand... I do not know how this didn't take off or even get put into a movie or something else later. He loved a rich television star, had good times, reflecting on it in the last verse, liked someone else all along but did not have the resources to get to her.

    Brilliant, tasteful, and really in-the-moment. I think of giant suburban gated communities in the 90's when I hear this. Just mastery.
