"Wide Eyed Girl" as written by Annie Lennox and David Allan Stewart....
She was a wide eyed girl
In a purple dress
She could have been good
She could have been the best
Shy little girl
When it came to the test
Wow oh

She was a cut above the rest.
She was a wide eyed girl
With teased up hair
She could have had money
But she didn't care
She was looking for you daddy
Never there
Looking for you daddy oh yea yea

Wide eyed girl

She was a wide eyed girl
Of a tender age.
Just moving out of her sensitive phase.
She said
"I love you baby it's for always
And I don't care what the teacher says."
When she walked out
Through the streets of Rome.
All of the Italians wanna take her home
All the brown little babies
With the slicked back hair
Sayin' "Prima amore, wow!"

"I'm sayin' something
Are ya listening to me?"
"Don't you walk away when I'm
Communicating with you!"
"She's goin' clickin' clackin'
Down the road in them high heeled shoes"!
"Mona Lisa!"

    General CommentAs a Eurythmis/Annie/Dave fanatic, I view this song (through its lyrics and video) as this: The mother (Annie (not in real life of course)) screwed around in high school, got pregnant, it kinda ruined her life, and her now teenage daughter is now becoming a bit of a slut and is easily persuaded by good looking guys to screw around as well. The mother will do anything in her power (even a slightly physical fight in front of teenage daughter's new Italian boyfriend) to keep her "wide eyed girl" from making the mistake that she did.

    This is what I like to call a good fricken song. With a good fricken video.
