Slice of Lime-Short Skirt, Long Jacket

So having a houseful and starting the crazy schedule that is summer sports practice isn't terribly conducive to creativity. This week's song is one I like to dance around to in the kitchen. It's one the kids used to like to dance around to as well. It's a fun song that required absolutely no creativity on my part in terms of coming up with images...although if I had time I could have come up with better than this (Especially that line about the machete, I used to have one big ass machete.). Ladies and gentleman, Cake's Short Skirt, Long Jacket.


I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what's best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who's fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She's playing with her jewelry
She's putting up her hair
She's touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt
and a long 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 and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She's 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 city bank we will meet accidentally
We'll start to talk when she borrows my pen

She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest
She wants a car that will get her there
She's changing her name from Kitty to Karen
She's trading her MG for a white Chrysler LeBaron

I want a girl with a short skirt and
a long jacket..

~Cake~

I want that very same girl. I think I might have even married her. I'll have to go check

S said...

I love that song!
I came by to do the chorus, sing it with me!

"Na na na na na na....
Na na na na na na ....
Na na na na na na ....
Na na na na na na ..."
Breaks out the bass solo......

Casdok said...

Am singing here too!!

Logophile said...

Yup, yup
Good one
My kids and I dig this one too.

mssolitaire said...

LOL... this is awesome! :) I love your slices of lime!

tsduff said...

I have that song for the ringtone when my daughter calls... it fits her almost perfectly (except the part about the "uninterupted properity" LOL!). You sure take a mean leg photo!

VE said...

You know, I like Cake too but I just gotta say...that guy never actually sings. He talks all his songs. After awhile it feels like I'm in a lecture hall...

Suldog said...

I've been a "leg man" for as long as I can remember.

("And how long is that?", she asked, knowing full well he had memory skills equivalent to a bowl of week-old oatmeal.)

Seriously - Always love a good leg shot. And this will keep me going for a day or so. Thanks!

Craver Vii said...

That's a tall order.

Kathryn said...

I la-la-love this song! Great pic to go along with it. :)

I can't dance, but I sing mock opera - all day!

Cocotte said...

Cake is always good.....the food and the music! Hi Lime - it's my first time here!

~Tim said...

Is that anything like "take off your pants and jacket"?

(M)ary said...

Kathryn said...

Yay for no more word verifications!!!! You rock!!!
:)
Thank you!

Beach Bum said...

Great song, sounds original, which is rare these days.

SignGurl said...

Absolutely one of the best songs ever written!! The image of you and your beautiful gams only makes it better.

BTExpress said...

Great gams sexy!

Moosekahl said...

Looks like a very nice short skirt!

airplanejayne said...

Love this song too!

We are gonna have so much fun on a pole dancing roadtrip...

Jocelyn said...

Ah, your first sentence grabbed me--we're at 4 nights a week of soccer, amongst other things... three sets of visitors this week alone! I did make two raspberry cream cheese pies to feed the lot, though, so I'm pretty chuffed.

Hang in there!

Les Becker said...

I LOVE Cake - and "Short Skirt, Long Jacket" is one of my favourites. Thanks for the hint to change the playlist again! Here from David's...

Sandi McBride said...

And who is this cake with the big ass machete? Or does the chick have the machete? Both frankly scare me, lol...but eyes that burn like cigarettes...now there is a line!
David sent me...I needed cheering!

CrazyCath said...

You are quite mad you know? In a healthy, kids-have-driven-me-insane sort of way.
I know that feeling well. ;0)

San said...

Hell, I wanna BE that girl. I'll take the dividends, the machete, and the uninterrupted prosperity. But hey, no Chrysler please.

You wear a short skirt well, milady.

Palm Springs Savant said...

citizen of the world said...

Odd song. But it was funny watching people's reactions to it.

atthewire said...
