GIRLFRIEND IN THE BAND

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


           I.  he gets double pay
               when she stands on the stage.
               the makeup and the hairspray can't hide
               that she couldn't sing if she tried.
               he's got his --

    CHORUS A:  girlfriend in the band,
               tambourine in hand,
               girlfriend in the band.
               girlfriend in the band,
               she plays keyboards now and then,
               girlfriend in the band.

          II.  at the bar she stands
               to get drinks for the band.
               she doesn't sing on all of the songs,
               never loads equipment on the van,
               'cause she's a --

    CHORUS B:  girlfriend in the band,
               tambourine in hand,
               girlfriend in the band.
               girlfriend in the band,
               she plays keyboards now and then,
               girlfriend in the band.

      BRIDGE:  she's learning cow bell,
               maracas and bongos.
               wants to form a trio
               with Linda and Yoko.
               she sings "aah,"
               she sings "ooh."
               what does John Oates do?
               what does John Oates do?

    CHORUS C:  it could be me up there.
               but I don't look like her.
               girlfriend in the band.

         III.  women never have
               a boyfriend in the band.
               they know that it would bring them to ruin
               if someone doesn't know what they're doin'.
               they have --

    CHORUS D:  Dave Stewart, Richard Carpenter,
               Ike Turner in their band,
               guys with talent.  who needs a
               girlfriend in the band . . .

               (etc. - ad lib)

               . . . girlfriend in the band.
