Both: We're just two little girls from Littlerock.
We lived on the wrong sid of the tracks
But the gentlemen friends who used to call
they never did seem to mind all
they came to the wrong side of the tracks
Marilyn: then someone broke my heart in Littlerock
So I up and left the pieces there
Like a little lost lamb I roamed about
I came to New York and I found out
Both: that men are the same way everywhere
I was young and determined
To be wined, and dined and ermined
and I worked at it all around the clock
Jane: Now one of these days in my fancy clothes
I'm going back home and punch the nose
Both: of the one who broke my heart
Marilyn: the one who broke my heart!
Both: The one who broke my heart in Littlerock, Littlerock,Littlerock, Littlerock!

Marilyn: I learned an awful lot in Littlerock
and here's some advice I'd like to share
find a gentleman who's shy or bold,
or short or tall, or young or old...
Both: as long as the guys a millionaire!
as a kid from the small street
I did very well on wallstreet
though I never owned a share of stock
and now that I'm known in the biggest banks
I'm going back home and give my thanks
to the one who broke my heart
Marilyn: the one who broke my heart
Both: the one who broke my heart

    I love this song so much. I am a HUGE Marilyn fan, so...I love all these. But this one is so cute, with her and Jane Russell.

@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
