"Ooh La" as written by and Luke Pritchard....
In their eyes is the place that you finally discovered
That you love it here, you've got to stay
On the bottom of the rock, an island
On which you find you love it when you twitch
You feel that itch in you petticoat
Your pretty pretty petticoat

Then you smiled, he got wild
You didn't understand that there's money to be made
Beauty is a card that must get played
By organization

And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

The world can be a very big place
So be yourself don't get out of place
Love your man and love him twice
Go to Hollywood and pay the price
Oh go to Hollywood

And don't be a star, it's such a drag
Take care of yourself, don't begin to lag
It's a hard life to live, so live it well
I'll be your friend and not in pretend
I know you girl
In all situations

And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty
Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty petticoat
Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty
Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty petticoat
In all situations

And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

    General CommentProbably I;m wrong but...

    About a girl who wanted fame and didn't get it? Think the American Dream... going to Hollywood to become an actress, failing?

    Just an idea...

    General CommentI don't know what the significance of this is, or if the Joyce reference is referring to an old song of Irish background, but in Ulysses I regarded the following passage as being referenced in this song:

    THE MOTH:


    I'm a tiny tiny thing
    Ever flying in the spring
    Round and round a ringaring.
    Long ago I was a king
    Now I do this kind of thing
    On the wing, on the wing!
    Bing!


    (HE RUSHES AGAINST THE MAUVE SHADE, FLAPPING NOISILY) Pretty pretty
    pretty pretty pretty pretty petticoats.

    Interesting? Eh?

    General Commenti agree that its avbout fame. its about someone he loved who was an amazing person seeking fame, and then getting it, but 'the world chewed her up and spat her out'as the press do to many of the famous people.

    General Commenti think its about a girl hes in love with and shes in love with him but she wants to be famous and he doesnt want to be a part of it and so she makes it famous and people take advantage of her and its not as amazing as she thought it would be.
