"Chick Habit" as written by and Serge(ginsburg Gainsbourg....
Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
Or you'll be alone in a quick
Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
Or you'll never get another fix

I'm telling you it's not a trick
Pay attention, don't be thick
Or you're liable to get licked

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
A girl's not a tonic or a pill
Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
You're just jonesing for a spill

Oh, how your bubble's gonna burst
When you meet another nurse
She'll be driving in a hearse

You're gonna need a heap of glue
When they all catch up with you
And they cut you up in two

Now your ears are ringing
The birds have stopped their singing
Everything is turning grey

No candy in your till
No cutie left to thrill
You're alone on a Tuesday

Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
Or you'll be alone in a quick
Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
Or you'll never get another fix

I'm telling you it's not a trick
Pay attention, don't be thick
Or you're liable to get licked

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

    General CommentThis song was originally done in the 60's by France Gall (such a cutie!). April March recorded the cover in '95ish. The lyrics aren't profound by any means, or even that coherent, but I think it paints a vague portrait of a guy playing a bunch of unsuspecting girls. (And honestly, for all I care, it could be about an egg salad sandwich; the song is extremely catchy. But I personally prefer the French version so I'm not so reminded of how amateur the lyrics are.)

    General CommentThis song was also used in a cute little movie about a young girl whose parents believed she was a lesbian. They sent her to be de-programmed from going the gay way. The song really fit in with this movie too. And I also must agree with Tarantino's use of music in his movies, it's fantastic.

    General CommentIt sounds like something from the (possibly) 50's era, although fairly recent. Because of its "old-time" feel, I think it creates such a nostalgic feeling to the song.
