"Something For The Girl With Everything" as written by and Ronald D Mael....
Something for the girl with everything
See, the writings on the wall
You bought the girl a wall
Complete with matching ball-point pen

You can breathe another day
Secure in knowing she won't break you (yet)
Something for the girl with everything
Have another sweet my dear

Don't try to talk my dear
Your tiny little mouth is full
Here's a flavour you ain't tried
You shouldn't try to talk, your mouth is full

Something for the girl with everything
Three wise men are here
Three wise men are here
Bearing gifts to aid amnesia

She knows everything
Yes yes everyting
She knew way back when you weren't yourself
Something for the girl with everything

Here's a really preatty car
I hope it takes you far
I hope it takes you fast and far
Wow, the engines really loud

Nobodys gonna hear a thing you say
Something for the girl with everything
Three wise men are here
Three wise men are here

Where should they leave these imported gimmicks
Leave them anywhere
An-an-anywhere
Make sure that there's a clear path to the door

Something for the girl with everything
Something for the girl with everything
Something for the girl with everything
Something for the girl with everything

Three wise men are here
Three wise men are here
Three wise men are here
Three wise men are here

Here's a patridge in a tree,
A gardener for the tree
Complete with ornithologist
Careful, careful with that crate

You wouldn't want to dent Sinatra, no
Something for the girl who has got everything,
Yes, yes, everything
Hey, come out and say hello

Before you friends all go
But say no more than just hello
Ah, the little girl is shy
You see of late she's been quite speechless,

Very speechless
She's got everything

    My InterpretationI always thought this was about a guy being blackmailed by a girl.

    "She knew you way back when you weren't yourself."

    The guy had some kind of past life (perhaps something to do with how he got all this money to spend on her). The girl found out about this past life, and she's going to tell people about it unless he buys her nice things.

    "You can breathe another day
    Secure in knowing she won't break you yet"

    Like a mortal appeasing an angry goddess, the guy makes offerings to the girl so that she may stay her hand.

    "Here's a really pretty car
    I hope it takes you far
    I hope it takes you fast and far"

    The thing that caps his suffering is that he has come to despise his girl, but he must continue to buy her gifts for fear of her telling his secret. "Three wise men" and "partridge in a tree" symbolize how every day is like Christmas for her now.

    "Hey, come out and say hello
    Before our friends all go
    But say no more than just hello
    Ah, the little girl is shy
    You see of late she's been quite speechless,
    very speechless
    She's got everything"

    The only enjoyment he can ever have these days is the satisfaction that his money can keep the girl quiet for another day.
