McDonalds Girl (Harvard Din & Tonics Version)

La Petite CuisineAwfully ChocolateAwfully ChocolateAwfully Chocolate
For AwfullyChocolateGirl who liked its complete silliness and for all who miss the Dins (06 blog, pix and...err..that thing about the ginger ale):

Audio:
Harvard Din & Tonics mp3 here. The original by Dean Friedman and other cover versions are here.

Lyrics (Harvard Din & Tonics version):
I leave from softball practice every night
It's getting dark, but the "Golden Arches" light up the way
I turn the corner at the traffic light
I count my money and then I rehearse what I'm going to say
"I'd like an order of fries, a quarter-pounder with cheese,
I love the light in your eyes, will you go out with me please?"

I am in love with a McDonalds girl
She has a smile of innocence so soft tender and warm
I am in love with a McDonalds girl
She is an angel in a polyester uniform

She doesn't try to impress anyone
She doesn't act all tough like all the other girls that I know
She don't treat me like a simpleton
She's not afraid to be the only other virgin I know
When my hamburger's cold, I get up ready to go,
She's only sixteen years old, and I'm in love with her so

I am in love with a McDonalds girl
She has a smile of innocence so soft tender and warm
I am in love with a McDonalds girl
She is an angel in a polyester uniform

O my angel, you add that special sauce to my life
Whenever I think of being without you, I grimace
I'm so in love with you...Patty...
Together, you and I can make every meal a Happy Meal
Give me a sign: am I for here, or to go?!

As I head through the door, the movement catches her eye,
My heart begins to soar, she smiles and waves good-bye, good-bye
Good-bye, good byeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I am in love with a McDonalds girl
She has a smile of innocence so soft tender and warm
I am in love with a McDonalds girl
She is an angel in a polyester uniform
She is an angel in a polyester uniform
She is an angel in a polyester uniform

Greetings to fans of the Dins from Shanghai, the 12th stop of our World Tour 2006!!

For those interested, the Harvard Din & Tonics will be performing two shows in Singapore at the Esplanade Recital Studio on 8 Aug at 7pm and 9pm. Tickets will go on sale via Sistic in about a week, check back on Aug 26th or 27th. You should also see a listing for this event on the Esplanade website in a couple of days. I'm currently working hard on confirming all the logistical details, and the whole group is very excited to be in Singapore. Hope to see you all there!

Nice song... but the only McDonald's girls I know are old aunties working minimum wage.
