Barbie Girl

If you lived through the 90's and were awesome, like this girl (pointing to myself in case you didn't get that reference), and went to the skating rink every weekend, and by skating rink, I don't mean ice skating, well we did sometimes, and I don't mean roller blades, I mean full on real skates.  That's right.  I. Was. Cool!
Anyway, Champs was the place to be when I was in Middle School (and probably part of High School, but we won't go there).  We went all the time and one of the funniest songs, that I still love to this day that would play, becuase it rock star jammin, great skating music, was........drumroll please!
BARBIE GIRL! By Aqua Aquarium.  Circa 1997 :)
That's right. If you haven't heard it, well you are in for a treat because I am posting the lyrics and video below! You are welcome ;) Enjoy!!


P.S. I used to know all the lyrics to this song...It's a bit disturbing, but remember how cool I was?? Yeah.... was being the operative word here. lol

Hi Barbie!
- Hi Ken!
- You wanna go for a ride?
- Sure, Ken!
- Jump in!
- Ha ha ha ha!

I'm a Barbie girl in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it's fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation

Come on, Barbie, let's go party

I'm a Barbie girl in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it's fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation

I'm a blonde single girl in the fantasy world
Dress me up, take your time, I'm your dollie
You're my doll, rock and roll, feel the glamour and pain
Kiss me here, touch me there, hanky-panky

You can touch, you can play
You can say I'm always yours, oooh whoa

I'm a Barbie girl in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it's fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation

Come on, Barbie, let's go party, ha ha ha, yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, oooh, oooh
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, ha ha ha, yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, oooh, oooh

Make me walk, make me talk, do whatever you please
I can act like a star, I can beg on my knees
Come jump in, be my friend, let us do it again
Hit the town, fool around, let's go party

You can touch, you can play
You can say I'm always yours
You can touch, you can play
You can say I'm always yours

Come on, Barbie, let's go party, ha ha ha, yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, oooh, oooh
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, ha ha ha, yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, oooh, oooh

I'm a Barbie girl in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it's fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation

I'm a Barbie girl in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it's fantastic
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation

Come on, Barbie, let's go party, ha ha ha, yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, oooh, oooh
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, ha ha ha, yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party, oooh, oooh

- Oh, I'm having so much fun!
- Well, Barbie, we're just getting started!
- Oh, I love you Ken!

P.P.S. My friends and I were part of the "inocent, not so crazy popular, didn't get into trouble, listened to our parents, went home by curfew" kind of bunch, but we totally thought that we the bomb.com wearing playboy bunny stickers on our tukuses...no joke.  My best girlfriends and I would buy playboy bunny stickers out of the machines at the skating rink and stick them on our rear ends. They were all pretty and gittery!! So cute! And I'm sure the more "popular" bunch of girls were wearing them and we just had to 'fit in'.
  We. Were. Cool. Losers...
How we all most of us survived and turned out ok? I will never know.  Thank you God :)

Thanks Carly Ann! Apparently, the new interface of blogger is a little less userfriendly. I couldn't find it anywhere! Had to go back to the old version and it was right there...
