lyrics

Oh baby, baby oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby, oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby, oh baby, baby

Oh baby, baby, I'll give you a goldmine of that chick
Bad relationship, slow song, boarder line poppy thing
But the real soul of rock and roll, he says
Is expressed best by those old blues men
Who play guitar and sing

I've got something those blues men don't got
fancy dance moves and sparkly tight tank top
And he says, you've got rhymes that are easy
Cliches that are cheesy, that's not what music needs
You could take a few lyric writing lessons from Lou Reed

Lou, who? I'm crazy for you, oh Lou, it's all brand new, Lou
Oh Lou, I'm crazy for you, oh Lou, it's all brand new, Lou

I'll keep all of your little girls up at night
Dancing in front of the mirror
Singing into the flashlight, wishing they were me
in the spotlight, oh baby, baby, oh baby, baby

I'll keep all of your little girls up at night
Dancing in front of the mirror
Singing into the flashlight, wishing they were me
in the spotlight, oh baby, baby, oh baby, baby

I'll give you waves of controversy
They'll ban my video and peak your curiosity
Word gets out, lots of free publicity
He asks, why can't you make the news by being timeless and true
No shock, trash, hype, less about you
And I say, I've been around now for a couple of decades
Sporting platinum blond, long, short, curly, brown, black and braids
Air brushed on every magazine cover, I could be any age
Any age, any age, any age

I'll keep all of your little girls up at night
Dancing in front of the mirror
Singing into the flashlight, wishing they were me
in the spotlight, oh baby, baby, oh baby, baby

I'll keep all of your little girls up at night
Dancing in front of the mirror
Singing into the flashlight

Connie Acher New York, New York

A New York City visual artist, Melodie Provenzano conceived of "Connie Acher" in 1996, while obsessively creating outsider folk pop on her four track late at night. Propelled by the tribulations of love and being alive, "Acher" stands for "one who aches" and "Connie" represents the pseudonymous character of her musical voice. ... more
