The Lyrics

Des: All summer I've basically ignored you, in favor of being an intern reporter and test prep classes and summer work and stuff. I wrote this song to tell you that your yuppie girl is always thinking of you.--xo Starlette.
Yuppie girl
She's been living in her type-A world
Till now, she's never told a curfew lie
Life's been so boring it could make one die

(I'm gonna try) for a yuppie girl
She's been dying in her test-prep world
As long as anyone so alive can
And now she's looking for a laid-back man
That's what I am

Although she knows that
She does not have much spare time
When she is working
I am on her mi-i-ind

I can't see her enough
(Just because)
I'm in love with a yuppie girl
You know, I've seen her in her yuppie world
She's really tired of her cell phone toys
And study sessions with her yuppie boys
She's got a choice

Yuppie girl
She says she's going to hang me with her pearls
I'm a distraction and school's almost in
Her summer homework has a victim been
(That means I win.)

On her phone, taaaaaalking
She's kicking somebody's ass
And as she's waaaaaaaalking
She waves as she and I pass

I can't see her enough;
That's because
I'm in love
With a yuppie girl
She's been living in her test-prep world
As long as anyone with red blood can
And now she's looking for a laid-back man
(That's what I am)

Yuppie girl
She's my yuppie girl
You know I'm in love
With a yuppie girl

Nice choice for a rewrite. The first two stanzas are very very good.

545, I thought it was good, but got a little boring.
