"1985" as written by and Jaret Reddick Mitch Allen....
Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husband's a CPA

Her dreams went out the door
When she turned 24
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake it fast
On the hood of white snake's car

Her yellow SUV
Is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothin' has been alright

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV

Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985
1985

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
Breakfast club, pretty in pink
Even St. Elmo's fire

She rocked out to wham
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where's the mini skirt
Made of snake skin?
Who's the other guy that's
Singing in Van Halen?

When did reality-become TV
Whatever happened to
Sitcoms, game shows
All the radio

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV

Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

She hates time
Make it stop
"When did my motley crew become
Classic rock?"

And when did Ozzy
Become an actor?
Please make this
Stop, stop, stop

And bring back Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV

Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 1985

Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2, and Blondie
And music still on MTV

Her two kids, in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
'Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985
