"Cynical Girl" as written by and Marshall H Crenshaw....
Well I'm goin' out
I'm goin' out lookin' for a cynical girl
Who's got no use for the real world
I'm lookin' for a cynical girl
Well I hate TV

There's gotta be somebody other than me
Who's ready to write it off immediately
I'm lookin' for a cynical girl

Well I'll know right away by the look in her eye
She harbors no illusions and she's worldly-wise
And I'll know when I give her a listen that she
She's what I've been missin'
What I've been missin'
I'll be lost in love

And havin' some fun with my cynical girl
Who'll have no use for the real world
I'm lookin' for a cynical girl
Well I'm goin' out

I'm goin' out lookin' for a cynical girl
Who's got no use for the real world
I'm lookin' for a cynical girl

Yeah I'll know right away by the look in her eye
She harbors no illusions and she's worldly-wise
And I'll know when I give her a listen that she
She's what I've been missin'
What I've been missin'
I'll be lost in love

And havin' some fun with my cynical girl
Who'll have no use for the real world
I'm lookin' for a cynical girl

    General CommentThis might be my favorite Marshall Crenshaw song. The thing I love about the narrator in this song is that while he wants so badly to find a "cynical girl" who shares his hate for TV, etc., his longing for love shows he's not quite as cynical at he believes. When he finds her he'll be lost in love, having fun. All that.
