[Verse 1]
Remember how we used to party up all night
Sneaking out and looking for a taste of real life
Drinking in the small town firelight

(Pabst Blue Ribbon on ice)
Sweet sixteen and we had arrived
Walking down the streets as they whistle, "Hi, hi!"

Stealing' police cars with the senior guys
Teachers said we'd never make it out alive
There she was my new best friend
High heels in her hand, swaying' in the wind

While she starts to cry, mascara running' down her little Bambi eyes:
"Lana, how I hate those guys."


[Hook]
This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Something' that we'd die for, it's our curse

Don't cry about it, don't cry about it
This is what makes us girls

We don't stick together cause we put our love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen


[Verse 2]
And that's where the beginning of the end begun
Everybody knew that we had too much fun
We were skipping school and drinking on the job
(With the boss)

Sweet sixteen and we had arrived
Baby's table dancing' at the local dive
Cheering our names in the pink spotlight
Drinking cherry schnapps in the velvet night

Yo we used to go break in
To the hotel pool, glimmer and we’d swim
Running from the cops in our black bikini tops
Screaming, "Get us while we're hot. Get us while we're hot"
(Come on take a shot)


[Hook]

[Bridge]
The prettiest in crowd that you had ever seen
Ribbons in our hair and our eyes gleamed mean

A freshmen generation of degenerate beauty queens
And you know something?
They were the only friends I ever had

We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
I got sent away, I was waving on the train platform
Crying cause I know I'm never coming back


[Hook]
