"Platinum Blonde" as written by and Deborah Harry....
I want to be a platinum blonde
Just like all the sexy stars
Marilyn and Jeane, Jayne, Mae and Marlene
Yeah they, they really had fun

In a luminous day-glo shade
Walk into a bar and I'll have it made
'Cause if that's all it takes; a double processed blonde

I want to be a platinum blonde
I want to be a platinum blonde
Be a platinum blonde

Yeah I even tried wearing a wig for a while
It was the right colour, but not the right style
Gonna get some peroxide at the beauty supply
See ya later

I want to be a platinum blonde
Just like all the sexy stars
Marilyn and Jeane, Jayne, Mae and Marlene
Yeah they, they really had fun

Now if you need me on Sunday and you look twice and see
That platinum blonde is gonna be me
In a double processed luminous day-glo shade
When I get this colour I'll have it made in the shade

Oh, I hope I'm OK
I want to be a platinum blonde
I want to be a platinum blonde

Honey, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta, I gotta
I gotta be a platinum blonde
I gotta be a platinum blonde
I gotta be a platinum blonde
I'll hit the bottle baby

    General CommentBlondie theme song. Blondie once promoted the idea that the name of the band came from Debbie Harry's bleached blonde hair. Her actual color is brunette. On Marilyn, Debbie Harry who is adopted, fantasizes about being Marilyn Monroe's daughter. She talks about this fantasy in "Making Tracks the Rise of Blondie" written by Debbie and Chris Stein. Debbie was born in 1945 and Marilyn Monroe in 1929, meaning Marilyn would be giving birth at age 16. Possible, but clearly the song plays into and maybe makes a little fun of this fantasy.
