"Wicked Wonderboys" as written by and Bertine Zetlitz Fred Ball....
she's got a cool quiet complexion
she's got a sweet sense of rejection
and all the wicked wonderboys
are washed upon the shore
she wants more

she's got a weird taste for deception
she's got a cool, quiet complexion
and all the wicked wonderboys
are asleep by her door
she wants more

she wants line[?], feeling fine
she wants stars and she wants guitars
she likes you to be scared all the time
she wants sun, and a gun
she likes cars baby, hit and run
she wants you to be gone, she'll be fine

she's got a sweet tooth for disaster
when you're quick, honey she's faster
and all the wounded Valentines are sitting by her bed
she sees red

she's got a cool quiet complexion
she's got a weird taste for deception
and all the wicked wonderboys are
washed upon the shore
she wants more

she wants line, feeling fine
she wants stars and she wants guitars
she likes you to be scared all the time
she wants sun, and a gun
she likes cars baby, hit and run
she wants you to be gone, she'll be fine

she wants line, feeling fine
she wants stars and she wants guitars
she likes you to be scared all the time
she wants sun, and a gun
she likes cars baby, hit and run
she wants you to be gone, she'll be fine

    General CommentIt's about this girl who's got a lot of boys who adore her.
    But she doesn't care for them at all, and wants them to be gone. She's cool, quiet and in total control of the situation. I think people may see her as a bit of an ice queen.

    I think there's something she craves. She's not as cynical as she might appear. But as for what that is, she has yet to figure out... It's not the "Wicked Wonderboys" at least.

    I love this song. A LOT!!

    General CommentThe line of wounded Valentines made me really emotional the first time I heard this song. It's my favourite from the album Rollerskating.

    I love the way 'Bertine' (the I-person) is not taking sides in this songs. The girl what she is, and the boys and you-person are what they are...
