In my neighborhood,
When shots go off,
No one bothers.
A POP, and a reply POP, and no reply

Dinosaurs on the quilt I wore
With a girl.
Such a classic girl,
Such a classic girl,
Such a classic girl

Gives her man great ideas.
Hears you tell your friends,
Hey man, listen to my great idea!
It's true I am a villain
When you fall ill,
that's probably because

Men never can be.
Not like a girl.
A classic girl,
Such a classic girl

They may say, Those were the days,,
But in a way,
You know for us these are the days.
Yes, for us these are the days

And you know you're my girl!
Such a classic girl,
Such a classic girl

Yeah for us these are the days

    General CommentI know this is not the best known JA song, but I really can just dig on this anytime anywhere. It reminds me of a woman I was in love with who came just close enough to me to break my heart slowly and sweetly. How lame is that?

    General CommentI got this album when it first came out..before they temporarily banned the cover art...and although I was probably a sophomore in high school, I never had been in love. I swear to god, that is how it felt 3 years later when I finally did. This is the best musical example of falling in love with an angel I have ever heard.

    General CommentThe whole mood of this song is so beautiful. I can't stop myself from thinking that Perry Farrell is actually singing about a perfect girl. Ever since hearing this I have been looking for a someone I could call a classic girl.

    General CommentI love this line...

    They may say, \"Those were the days...,\"
    but in a way, you know for us these are the days

    That line actually made me think about life differently.
