"Boys In Town" as written by Christina Joy Amphlett and Mark Christopher Mcentee....
I am through with hanging around
With all the boys in town
Now I want a man around
Get me out of here

I am a just red brassiere to all the boys in town
Put this bus in top gear get me out of here

I must have been desperate I must have been pretty low
I must have been desperate I must have been pretty low

I was always driving home all the boys in town
But they never telephoned get me out of here
I think they're pretty phony
You're not like the rest
You've heard of matrimony
They've all flunked the test

I must have been desperate I must of been pretty low
I must have been desperate I must have been pretty slow

Oh I'm tired oh I'm wired
Oh I'm tired, oh I'm wired ahhh

Too much too young, too much too young
Too much too young, too much too young
Get me out of here, get me out of here
Get me out of here, get me out of here
Get me out of here, get me out of here
Get me out of here

    General CommentA great song, when she originally performed it in 1981 of course (lets just not mention the aussie idol finale)


    Song meaning seems fairly clear - shes sick of all the bullshit and wants a -real- man ;D

    My InterpretationThe singer is regretting a series of one-night stands with men, and wants out of things as fast as she can get out. She's now found a guy she wants to settle down with and have for a lifetime.

    RIP Chrissy Amphlett.
