Notes

Robert Hazard never recorded the song himself but anyway, he performed a live recording of this song. In fact, Cyndi did change his song to girls having fun in general instead of having fun only with sex. It has been heard that Robert Hazard didn't like her version when it first came out (thanks to Mr Dean for this information).

A new version of the song exists under the name Hey Now.

The Japanese title of this song was "High School is Danceteia".

 

Lyrics

I come home in the morning light

My mother says when you gonna live your life right

Oh mother dear we're not the fortunate ones

And girls they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun

 

The phone rings in the middle of the night

My father yells what you gonna do with your life

Oh daddy dear you know you're still number one

But girls they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have--

 

That's all they really want

Some fun

When the working day is done

Girls-- they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun

 

Some boys take a beautiful girl

And hide her away from the rest of the world

I want to be the one to walk in the sun

Oh girls they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have

 

That's all they really want

Some fun

When the working day is done

Girls--they want to have fun

Oh girls just want to have fun,

They want to have fun,

They want to have fun...
