Lyrics

Final version/Second demo

I’m a wild child, bright child, knockin' at your door
You thought that you were done but now you want me even more
Dum dum
You want me even more
Dum dum

I'm a star child, big smile, livin' in L.A.
I’m comin' over, baby, you can’t go to school today
Dum dum
Go to school today
Dum dum

I belong to a bygone era, like the Scarlett O’Hara
Of the downtown scene, 'cause I just wanna dream
I just wanna drink
I'm a pop little singer, fam-bam zinger
Mansfield ringer from the Hollywood silver screen
Silver screen

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same
Once you've had a taste
Of heaven my way
You’ll be forever changed

I'm a wild child, sky high, lyin' on your floor
I know I had a lot, but baby wants a little more
Dum dum
Want a little more
Dum dum

In my white mink, pink cigarettes from the store
We're making robberies from Tijuana to the shore
Dum dum
'juana to the shore
Dum dum

I belong to a bygone era, like the Bugsy Malone
Of the deep Sahara, 'cause I'm on the scene
Yeah, I'm on the scene
I'm a bad jazz singer, givin' you the finger
No matter what, you'll linger 'cause you like me even when I'm mean
I'm the queen

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same
Once you've had a taste
Of heaven my way
You’ll be forever changed

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same
Once you've had a taste
Of heaven my way
You’ll be forever changed

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same
Once you've had a taste
Of heaven my way
You’ll be forever changed

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same
Once you've had a taste
Of heaven my way
You’ll be forever changed

First demo

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same

I’m a wild child, bright child, knockin' at your door
You thought that you were done but now you want me even more
Dum dum
You want me even more
Dum dum

I'm a star child, big smile, livin' in L.A.
I’m comin' over, baby, you can’t go to school today
Dum dum
Go to school today
Dum dum

I belong to a bygone era, like the Scarlett O’Hara
Of the downtown scene, 'cause I just wanna dream
I just wanna drink
I'm a pop little singer, fam-bam zinger
Mansfield ringer from the Hollywood silver screen

Once you've had something
Something so beautiful
You’ll never be the same
Once you've had a taste
