The Lyrics

I wrote this originally in 1987 or so, when Sean Penn was married to the Big M herself. This is based on Penn's subsequent activities with his lovely wife and run-ins against the paparazzi. No ill-will is meant toward this guy, by the way.
I will be the marital solution
To the Virgin Revolution
I've no faith in journalism
It's "no comment" or else I hit them

I am married to a material girl,
I'm married to a material girl

In movies I act like a freak
"Shanghai Surprise" was a failure
In that film, I was very weak
But in "Bad Boys" I was a natural

I am married to a material girl,
I'm married to a material girl

I guess I'm kind of shy
Method acting's just my way
My wife's phone number I find
In bathrooms every day

I am married to a material girl,
I'm married to a material girl
I am married to a material girl,
I'm married to a material girl
(repeat through fade...)

(slammin hollywood) Had a tough time pacing. Not your fault, though! It's the the way The Police sing...couldn't do it...looks funny, though.

(Slammin' Hollywood) Hard to work with a short song, but you did a good job with it. I've only seen a few films with Penn in them; "Shanghai Surprise" was with Madonna, AmIRight?

(Slam It) '87 Agri? Wow............ I wasn't even born yet.... I was negative one..... I don't know about the event, nor the song... But "Material Girl" is a great song!!!!

(slammin Hollywood) - great idea subbing material Girl for Material World - no doubt you could write a whole string of Madonna parodies using that idea, Agri!
