We were three little girls from school.
One was pretty, one was smart
And one was a borderline fool.
Well she's still good lookin'.
That woman hasn't slipped a bit.
The smart one used her head
She made her fortune
And me, I cross the border every chance I get.

We were the girls of the 50's.
Stoned rock and rollers in the 60's
And more than our names got changed
As the 70's slipped on by.
Now we're 80's ladies.
There ain't much these ladies ain't tried.

We've been educated.
We got liberated.
And had complicating matters with men.
Oh, we've said "I do".
And we've signed "I don't".
And we've sworn we'd never do that again.
Oh, we've burned our bras.
And we've burned our dinners
And we've burned our candles at both ends.
And we've had some children
Who look just like the way we did back then.

Oh, but we're all grown up now.
All grown up,
But none of us can tell you quite how.

We were the girls of the 50's.
Stoned rock and rollers in the 60's.
Honey, more than our names got changed
As the 70's slipped on by.
Now we're 80's ladies.
There ain't been much these ladies ain't tried

A-My name is Alice.
I'm gonna marry Artie.
We're gonna sell apples
And live in Arkansas.

B-my name is Betty.
I'm gonna marry Bobby.
We're gonna sell beans.
And live in Brazil.

C-my name is Connie
I'm gonna marry Charlie.
We're gonna sell cars.
And live in California.
