“Rich Girl”


She says:

“This ain’t heaven,

This is paradise”

Some girls are not afraid to show their wealth to the world: “She’s got diamond fillings in their teeth and high stiletto heels; when she walks into the streets she’s hard as a razor of steel”.

Life in the golden realm of the rich and famous (sometimes even smart and beautiful) has surely its appeal, though it may affect important vital functions: “She’s a rich girl, you can tell by the way she breathes”.

“Rich Girl” was released as the b-side to Don’t Ask Me Why, the second single taken from Eurythmics’ last Eighties album, We Too Are One (1989). (Michele Aversa)
