Came home in the middle of the night
Father says what you're gonna do with your life
Well daddy dear you're still number one
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls they

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Well mother dear we're not the fortunate ones
All girls they want to have fun
Oh girls they

That's all they really want
Those girls they want to have fun
Some boys take a beautiful girl
Only to hide her away from the rest of the world
Not me, I want to be the one in the sun
Girls they want to have fun
Oh girls they

That's all they really want
Those girls they wanna have fun

    General CommentI love this version of the song. I first heard it on MTV's The Hills. Its so different from the original track that I didn't even recognize it.

    To me, he chose to cover this song to sing more from a guy's prospective. The girl's version is just more carefree and fun. Laswell's version is so beautiful. I think he is saying he is the type of guy that could be perfect for this girl. He doesn't want her to be locked up in the house and controlled. He wants to "be the one in the sun" right there with her having fun.

    General CommentPersonally I think this is so much more pondering and poignant. It was genius to do this from a guy's's so beautiful. You can almost see this guy talking to his parents, see him with his girl. The last chord gets me every time. "Some boys take a beautiful girl and hide her away from the rest of the world..."

    General CommentI'm in looove with this song and the way he covers it,!
    the cyndi lauper version seems like the girl is so oblivios , but in this version, i see it as:
    she's a girl lost and is caught up in partying and boys, and her parents see her spiraling downward but she tries to reassure them that she's fine and that she has her priorities straight meanwhile she doesnt know how to help herself, all she knows is as long as shes having "fun" she's happy, but doesnt realize the reprecussions of her 'fun' and doesnt want any type of commitment to boys because they just tie her down, she's too free spirited

    General CommentI absolutely love this cover. I hate the original but Greg's cover of it is one of my favorite songs. He just adds a whole new perspective to the song. Cyndi Lauper makes the song seem carefree and living-in-the-moment, but Greg's spin is serious and sad, but in a completely wonderful way.
