Big Julie

It happened that green and crazy summer
It was a summer when for long time she'd not been a member
She belonged to no club and she was a member of nothing in the world
And she was afraid

She's by herself again in the quiet secret night
Below the neighbor's window
Hands in pockets, head on one side

And the radio plays an unknown song
That has nothing at all to do with God
But it's miles away from this sad town

And the stupid kids who get her down
Just wait until big Julie rules the world
Big Julie rules the world

Well, the radio still plays
Floating beyond time like the greatest people in the world
All springing up and feeling fine

And it's far away from these sweaty lads
Who say that boys cannot be slags
And if it's not them then it's their dads

Like the guy who felt her up in class
And Sunday school teacher
Who said she had beautiful breasts

And the local radio DJ who is so obviously obsessed
Yeah, form an orderly queue when big Julie rules the world
Big Julie rules the world

Yeah, go and chase your dreams
But if your dreams are not your own then wouldn't it be better
Just to work things out at home?

And she knows sex is just for dummies anyway
Something you do when you've run out of things to say
But this song will play until the light

It's the sound of her trying to find something to like
The sound of her walking day and night
And this song may lead her far away

But tonight it seems to light the way
And she can almost see the future shine
And every thing's in tune and every thing's in time

It will play until the day
Big Julie rules the world
Big Julie rules the world
