    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQJyjMejRv8"]YouTube - Zappa's Fine Girl with Puppets[/ame]


    Oh yeah,
    She was a fine girl
    She could get down wit de get down

    She change a tire
    Chop a little wood for de fire
    Poke it around ... if it died down

    Oh yeah,
    She was a fine girl
    She go up in the mornin'
    She go down in the evenin'... all de way down
    She do the dishes
    If you wishes
    Silverware too
    Make it look brand new... when she get through

    Oh yeah,
    She was a fine girl
    Outa this world

    Well, yeah, well, yeah, well, yeah, well,

    Oh yeah,

    Chop a little wood for de fire
    Poke it around ... if it died rlown

    Oh yeah
    She was a fine girl
    With a lovely smile
    With a bucket on her head
    Fulla water from de well
    She could run a mile

    Oh yeah
    She wouldn't spill a drop
    It'd stay on top
    Her head was kinda flat
    But her hair covered that

    She was a fine girl
    Didn't need no school
    She was built like a mule
    With a thong sandal
    Well, wasn't no kinda job she could not handle
    She could get down ... wit de get down
    All de way down

    Re: Fine girl

    I suppose you posted that just to annoy me...lol!

    That's o.k. here's one for you:

    It's called "Men" by the Forester Sisters.

    They buy you dinner, open your door.
    Other then that, what are they good for?
    Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men.
    They all want a girl just like the girl,
    That married dear old dad: they make me so mad.
    Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men.
    Well, you can't beat 'em up 'cause they're bigger then you.
    You can't live with 'em and you just can't shoot 'em.
    Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men.

    They love their toys; they make their noise.
    They're nothing but a bunch of overgrown boys.
    Men! I'm talking 'bout men.
    If you give 'em what they want, they never fall in love.
    Don't give 'em nothin' they can't get enough:
    Men! I'm talking 'bout men.

    Well, you can't beat 'em up 'cause they're bigger then you.
    You can't live with 'em and you just can't shoot 'em.
    Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men.

    In the beginning they always aim to please.
    They serve a purpose; they fill a need.
    They ensure survival of the species.

    They take you for a ride, run of gas.
    Most of the time they're a pain in the a-a yeah, yeah.
    Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men.

    Well, you can't beat 'em up 'cause they're bigger then you.
    You can't live with 'em and you just can't shoot 'em.
    Men! I'm talkin' 'bout men.

    Silver tongue devils.
    Well, they're lying through their teeth.
    Saying anything,
    Just to sweep you off your feet.
    Ooh yeah, men! talkin' 'bout men.
    Mere mortal men.

    Now THAT'S "misandry."

    Re: Fine girl

    Difference between my song and yours is that my song actually expresses appreciation for a (certain type of) woman. Not contempt for an entire gender.

    Well I certainly don't see it that way. The song talks about her basically being a slave, being denied an education, being built like a mule isn't exactly a compliment, nor is having a permanently flat head from carrying buckets of water...."she do your laundry, she change a tire, chop a little wood for de fire...poke it around if it died down"...

    Yeah a great girl...as she seemed to be willing to traditionally female jobs AND "his" jobs both....I'm sure most guys would agree, she's quite a catch.

    He takes care of her and he loves her. A lot of women out there wish they could say that about themselves.

    Well, we just have to assume that he takes care of her. We really don't hear a single word about that in the entire song.

    And interestingly, we never hear her perspective, her thoughts about any of this.

    Re: Fine girl

    Maybe the fact that we've been taking care of you for hundreds of thousands of years would give you a clue. (And no, you were not kept as cattle or slaves).

    It appears that Tera is expressing her disaproval of placing any expectations on a woman, it is so oppressing..
    We're all so used to hearing it the other way with women demanding men do everything and women shouldn't be expected to do anything.

    Billy,

    That's not at all what I am expressing.

    Re: Fine girl

    Yes, as usual, feminists can dish it out non-stop but when it's reversed we get the usual response..

    Sickening really..

    Cannot wait to jump onto the female bandwagon and respond to anything that may not pedestialise women...

    They have to have a point of view on everything. Maybe we should all stop commenting and just wait for her to make a post and comment infinitum.
