"Girl About Town" as written by and David James Inson....
See that girl running around,
She used to play in a band in town,
Had an electric guitar covered in stars,
The big, bad queen of the music scene

She got signed to a record label,
Spent the advance on a pinball table,
Sold a hundred records to all her friends,
Now she's back again

She lives in a flat halfway up in the sky,
Goes out with her boy into the MC5s,
Wears a different t-shirt every night,
With 'Access all areas' pinned on tight

See her running around,
She's the girl about town that you heard of,
See her running around,
She's the girl about town that you heard of,
See her running around,
She's the girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of

See that girl lying under the bar,
She used to be a rock'n'roll star,
Smoked cigarettes with Joan Jett in America

She got her picture in Rolling Stone,
She was third from the left behind Joey Ramone,
You couldn't see her face,
But I'm sure she looked great anyway

She lives in a flat halfway up in the sky,
Goes out with her boy into the MC5s,
She's be OK if he didn't hit her,
Or go to bed with the babysitter

See her running around,
She's the girl about town that you heard of,
See her running around,
She's the girl about town that you heard of,
See her running around,
She's the girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of

Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of,
Girl about town that you heard of
