I come home in the morning light
My mother says
"When you gonna live your life right?"
Oh, mother dear
We're not the fortunate ones
And girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

The phone rings
In the middle of the night
My father yells
"What you gonna do with your life?"
Oh, daddy dear, you know
You're still number one
But girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

Girls, they wanna, wanna have fun
Girls wanna have fun

Some boys
Take a beautiful girl
And hide her away
From the rest of the world
I wanna be the one
To walk in the sun
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

Girls, they wanna
They wanna have fun
Girls wanna have
They just want, they just want
They just want, they just want

That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

Girls, they wanna
They wanna have fun
Girls wanna have

When the working
When the working
When the working day is done
Oh, when the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
They wanna have fun

    General Comment"Father" and "daddy" should both be replaced with "doctor," since that's what Emilie says.

    This is an awesome cover of a song that was already good.

    General CommentI LOVE THIS COVER! Although, I think it sounds much more amazing live. :) I fell in love with EA the minute I heard the first song. (Opheliac). She has a rare talent. I also love how she doesn't lip-sink like "Ashlee Simpson". I hate pop music, and Emilie Autumn has put a new mind of the word "music" into my mind.

    Oh, mommy dear we're not the fortunate ones
    And girls, they wanna have fun
    Oh, girls just wanna have... shh.

    The phone rings in the middle of the night
    My doctor yells: what you gonna do with your life?
    Oh, doctor dear you know you're still number one
    But girls they wanna have fun
    Oh, girls just wanna have...

    Song MeaningI think its about questing for love. On the surface everyone around her thinks she wants to have fun and spend her life in dating and hanging out all nights, but she wants to be the one to walk in the sun, or in other words, to find her love.

    General CommentEmilie did such a great job, I love this cover!
    Plus the song itself is awesome, it's been like an anthem for my party-all-night-long and ladie's night years.
    This song is not about love, it's about life being short and ugly sometimes, so we have to enjoy every time of it. Maybe it's not the most appropriate time, but all of us need time to enjoy ourselves. And just in case anybody thinks a girl's purpose on life is to find a man, "Some boys take a beautiful girl / And hide her away! from the rest of the world / I want to be the one to walk in the sun...!" sends the message that it's better to have no man than having one who controls you.
    I love the song, it's so perfect <3

    General CommentI really don't like Emilie's version of this song, to be quite honest. I liked her version of Bohemian Rhapsody better.
