The Lyrics

If you aren't familiar with the song, please download it - it's a treat! We left the 'verticle hold' line alone with one slight change - it was too good to mess with...
Way on the other side of the Valley
Hitchin' a ride from Valencia
Picked up by a blonde girl
She rapped Eminem:
'I'm a Slim Shady'
And 'I'm Sorry Mama'
Waitin' by the traffic light at Balboa Park
She was talkin' on her cell to all her friends
She was complainin' loudly 'bout her Daddy's car
It was missin' a gear -
And bad on bends

She was a Valley girl
She was going to the mall
She thought some shopping at Elaine's would be rad
She asked me if I was a surfer dude - because
That's the kind of guy made her pa real mad
We took Topanga and we headed down to the beach
I asked her name while I was starin' at her chest
She told me what it was but I quickly forgot
'Cus you know
It was just like all the rest

Tre-e-e-en-dy name:
(Think it was Bri-i-i-ta-ney)
Tre-e-e-en-dy name

We had some extra time
We were real hungry
We went to Taco Bell for somethin' to eat
She had a diet Coke - she had some salsa
She forgot to tell me she was anorexic
Well we arrived at the Santa Monica pier
We left the car in a red-painted no parking zone
We were sittin' at the top of the ferris wheel
She said Dad had influence in case it got towed

Tre-e-e-en-dy name:
(May-ay-ay-be 'twas Ash-a-ley)
Tre-e-e-en-dy name

(sax solo)

She took me home with her
We watched some TV
Arnold Schwarzenegger and some guy getting shot up
I started foolin' around with her vertical hold
We were real quiet 'cus her parents were not up
We lit incense and smoked some pot
Turned on the fan for clearin' out the air
I found the braces in her mouth
We made love - she said I mussed up her hair

Tre-e-e-en-dy name:
(Was it Ca-a-a-ait-a-lyn?)
Tre-e-e-en-dy name

Tre-e-e-en-dy name:
(Bet it was Bri-a-a-a-na)
Tre-e-e-en-dy name

Way on the other side of the Valley
Hitchin' a ride from Valencia
Picked up by a blonde girl
She rapped Eminem:
'I'm a Slim Shady'
And 'I'm Sorry Mama'
'I'm a Slim Shady'
And 'I'm Sorry Mama'
'I'm a Slim Shady'
And 'I'm Sorry Mama'

NOTE: This is NOT the same song that was done by the Cure or by Rainbow, so make certain you have the correct "Ariel" before you hit that pacing vote... Thanks!
