I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl with shoes that cut

Who's fast, thorough, and sharp as a tack
She's putting up her hair
And picking up slack

I want a girl who stays up late
Who uses a machete, to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
She is fast, thorough, and sharp as a tack
I want a girl with a short skirt and a long, long jacket
I want a girl with a smooth liquidation
At City Bank we will meet accidentally

She wants a car that will get her there
From Kitty to Karen
I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket
