"Girls' Room" as written by and Phair....
I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in the sky
I'm sleeping in the water
I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in girls' room tonight

Here comes Tiffany
My best friend, Tiffany
Wearing a size too small of sweater

Me and Tiffany
Dressing up pretty
We love to ride
We love to canter

My best friend Tiffany
She is so popular
We're going from site to site and pool to pool tonight

And we hear Terry say that Tricia's ok
But she ought to learn to shave her bikini line better
And Tauren was born, like her mother, in a storm
And Tracey's been away forever

I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in the sky
I'm sleeping in the water
I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in girls' room
I'm sleeping in girls' room tonight

    General CommentShe´s sitting in a toilet stall at school never wanting to come out.
    Tiffany is her imaginary friend. Second letter I is for imaginary.
    The rest of the girls names all have R´s, meaning they´re real.
    She wants to be a part of this group but for whatever reason can´t.
    Tiffany would be her ticket into the popular crowd.
    She´s fantasizing about the cool times and gossip they would share.

    General CommentI didn't notice the T thing I love this song too. I think it's about popular most likely rich girls who go out and party all the time but after a wile the see the repercussions of their actions like Tricia getting pregnant and Tauren born in a storm Ex. ant the girls room symbolizes freedom and the party no rules life.

    General CommentI like to think of this song as being sung by an adult in the middle of an argument with her partner. She finishes the arguement with a shout of "I'm going to sleep in the Girls' room" the Girls being her children and after going into the room with her kids she thinks back to the days when she was on the cusp of adulthood (The reference to shaving being pubity) and the sense of uninhibited enjoyment she felt then.

    I'm sure if Elliott Smith had sung it it would be about drugs though :)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of girls in a sorority sitting around gossiping. I think the singer was supposed to have "experimented" with Tiffany.

    General CommentTracy is the singer.

    She's imagining her old pals coming back to her amidst a troubling time in her own life as an adult.

    She reverts back to childish, immature thoughts when her present adult life becomes overwhelming.

    "I'm sleeping in the girls room tonight".

    She doesn't have friends, maybe, right now. And she needs that because of something personal occurring to her.

    The last thing she imagines Terry saying;
    "Tracy's been away forever..." That's herself thinking of herself being away from "the girls room" - i.e, her youth, her old self.

    It's also clever that Phair writes her imagining of Tiffany wearing a "size too small of sweater".
    Which fits the idea of her imagining back to when she was younger and more carefree.
