Cyndi Lauper: She Bop!

Shortly after the appearance of "She Bop," Cyndi Lauper's mother asked her what the song was about. Cyndi told her to read the lyrics (below).

Her mother soon cottoned on: "Is that song about that?" she asked. "Down there?" Indeed it was...

Moreover, Lauper later admitted that she had had her own "she-bop moment" while seeking inspiration in the recording studio. "I took off my shirt, I took off my pants," she recalled. "And it was so ridiculous I started to laugh."

["She Bop" lyrics:
We-ell-I see them every night in tight blue jeans--
In the pages of a blue boy magazine
Hey I've been thinking of a new sensation
I'm picking up--good vibration--
Oop--she bop--
Do I wanna go out with a lion's roar
Huh, yea, I wanna go south 'n' get me some more
Hey, they say that a stitch in time saves nine
They say I better stop--or I'll go blind
Oop--she bop--she bop
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
I hope He will understand
She bop--he bop--a--we bop
I bop--you bop--a--they bop
Be bop--be bop--a--lu--she bop,
Oo--oo--she--do--she bop--she bop
(whistle along here)...
Hey, hey--they say I better get a chaperone
Because I can't stop messin' with the danger zone
No, I won't worry, and I won't fret--
Ain't no law against it yet--
Oop--she bop--she bop...]
