Short Skirt/Long Jacket

Today I’m featuring a song that’s been stuck in my head for the last few days. Don’t get me wrong, I love the song, but I need to get it un-stuck so I’m sharing it with you in the hopes of passing it along. “Short Skirt/Long Jacket” was used in the film Waitress starring Keri Russell and is the first single by the band Cake from their album Comfort Eagle. Happy Monday, y’all!

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows whats best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes
I want a girl with the right allocation
Whos fast, and thorough, and sharp as a tack
Shes playing with her jewelry, shes putting up her hair
Shes touring the facility and picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt,
And a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong jacket

I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass
She is fast, thorough, and sharp as a tack
Shes touring the facility and picking up slack
I want a girl with a short skirt,
And a long, long jacket

I want a girl with a smooth liquidation
I want a girl with good dividends
At citi bank we will meet accidentally
Well start to talk when she borrows my pen
She wants a car with a cup holder arm rest
She wants a car that will get her there
Shes changing her name from kiddy to karen
Shes trading her mg for a white Chrysler le barron
I want a girl with a short skirt,
And a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong jacket
