Miss November Tuesday,
Bend your rubber rules.
Take your time, but don't take
Off your high heeled shoes.
She's in demand at dinner time;
She's on the factory wall.
And when the gentlemen retire
Guess who's in control?
She blew your money
On taking a cruise.
If that isn't funny,
Well, watch out teacher.

Ooh, ooh. When the chamber's empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Dressed in flimsy clothing,
Use your lipstick line
To colour fear and loathing
With a pink disguise.
You've never refused when she lies back
Put a stripe on the union; and a star on the jack.
She's on the case at dinner time.
She's on the evening news.
And if you dare step out of line
You're going to be abused.
You may not like it;
You may not be scared.
But hell has no fury like a
Young girl's ego.


Ooh, ooh. Doo, doo, doo.
You might adopt an attitude;
Look on the moral side.
But if police are after you,
Where's the best place to hide?
For this production
They gave her a gun.
Ain't no director
So watch out actors!

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentThis song is about Margaret Thatcher, although the boys would not admit it straight out in interview I seem to recall (tho could be wrong)....cowards.

    General CommentMiss November Tuesday
    (election time in the US)
    Put a stripe on the union, a star in the jack
    (The union is the stars portion of the American Flag and a Union Jack is the name of the British flag)

    Don't really know what that means and why they chose a spainsh term for the song either.

    Link(s)The one bright spot for me with this song is the lyrics. In some ways, they remind me of being a stay-at-home (I always laugh at that “home” part…more than half my day is spent in the darn car!!) with the way Simon says “She’s on demand at dinnertime”….but when you really listen, I think it’s about being a woman in general (from an enlightened man’s point of view, of course). Simon sings about a variety of different “typical” female societal roles, and I just have to smile at some of the lines. “She blew your money on taking a cruise” (um, yes. Yes I did.) “Hell hath no fury like a young girl’s ego” (and if you think the young girls are bad, you should probably be really afraid of the adult women…) I do laugh because the real deal is that yes, we women let the men think they are in charge, let them believe they’re making the big decisions, all the while we’re running off to concerts with our friends…and Simon gets it. (Wait, maybe that’s just me??) No matter, the lyrics are smart and I love them. I do admit to playing this every once in a while when my husband is in the car, just to see if he even gets it (nope)…I do appreciate a good lyric! As an aside, this entire song reminds me of an interview with Yasmin. She explains that if a fan gets too friendly with Simon, she’ll walk up behind him and grab his crotch, proclaiming it to be hers. Good for you, Yasmin!!
