"Curriculum Vitae" as written by Klas Frans Ahlund and Robin Miriam Carlsson....
You can't stop it You can't escape it You can't turn it off
So I'd appreciate your kind consideration in this matter
Sir or Mam would you please turn it the fuck up
Do it

Unleashed in the east
Best dressed in the west
Sorted in the north
Without a doubt in the south

The queen of queenbees
Lioness of Juda
Phoenix from the ashes risen

Undefeated undisputed featherweight champion
on all five continents

World record holder with a high score of two gazillion in Tetris
Two-time recipient of the Nobel prize for super foxiest female ever
and war time consigliere to the Cosa Nostra

She split the storm, invented the x-ray, the cure for AIDS, and the surprise blindfold greeting

She performed and choreographed the fights for Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon
and Game of death and still does stunt doubles for Jackie Chan on the weekends

She suckerpunched Einstein, outsmarted Ali, and even outsuperfreaked Rick James
She's the founder and CEO of Konichiwa Records
The most decorated professional field operative in the industry
and in the streets
With a perfect track record since kindergarden where she used to
whoop schoolboy ass

She's listed in section 202 of the United Nations Security Act of 1979
as being too hot to wear tight sweaters on international airspace
In this world of tension pressure and pain
she is known by men and women of all origin and faith
for her wisdom, compassion, and relentless
determination in the quest to get paid

    General CommentAs per the dictionary:

    n. pl. curricula vitae Abbr. CV
    A summary of one's education, professional history, and job qualifications, as for a prospective employer.

    Basically a resume, but far more in depth.


    So, to the song. This was the first song on Robyns 2005 album, 'Robyn'. This was the first release in which she showcased her new synth-pop/electro-pop/indie-tronica sound. Before this album, she was largely seen as a strictly pop artist. This spoken word song meant to introduce us to the 'new' Robyn.

    For the most part, the lyrics are jokingly listing Robyn's qualifications. The only real factual lyric is that she is, in fact, the founder and CEO of Konichiwa Records.

    Overall, it's an interesting song. A fun introduction to her new sound and image.
