"New Girl Now" as written by and Dermot Grehan....
Hot summer night
Storm lies in the air
My eyes are a little heavy
I'm feeling in the past tense
I'm hardly aware

I don't want you on the phone
don't you play that good girl with me
Why must I always say it again

I've got a new girl now
I've got a new girl now
I've got a new girl now
And she's a lot like you

I tried to wash my face
But my head fell to low
I tried to bury myself
But my mind wouldn't stay at home

I don't care if you're sitting at home
somebody has broken into me
Why must I always say it again

I got a new girl now
I got a new girl now
I got a new girl now
And she's a lot like you

I don't want you on the phone
don't you play good girl with me
Why must I always say it again

I've got a new girl now
I've got a new girl now
I've got a new girl now
And she's a lot like you

    General CommentNo comments for this gem of the 80's?

    I 'rediscovered' this song as my new pickup truck came with a year's subscription to Sirius Radio, and 'Classic Rewind' plays this about 1x per day...

    The song's about the haunting memory/guilt of a breakup, the girl wants the singer back, and he's feeling guilt about how he's left her. She isn't actually stalking him, and the words of the song, taken slightly out of context would indicate he's a controlling/domineering type ("Don't you play Good Girl with me").

    Instead, it's his own guilt. "I don't want you on the phone" is his recall of her, not an actual phone call. The whole kicker to the song is that the new girl is a lot like the old one... trying to replace her and restore the memory.

    I have to say I love the sneer on the word 'me' in that "Don't you play Good Girl with ME' :)

    Just a catchy tune that exemplified early 80's popular rock (and Canadian Hair Bands).
