Punk rock girl

Dear Ronin,
Everyone needs a theme song.  I realize you will have to choose your own someday when your older, but for now, I have decided that your theme song is Punk Rock Girl by the Dead Milkmen.

One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead
I met a girl there
And she almost knocked me dead
Punk rock girl please look at me
Punk rock girl what do you see?
Let’s travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl

I tapped her on the shoulder
And said do you have a beau?
She looked at me and smiled
And said she did not know
Punk rock girl give me a chance
Punk rock girl let’s go slamdance
We’ll dress like Minnie Pearl
Just you and me punk rock girl

We went to the Phillie Pizza Company
And ordered some hot tea
The waitress said “Well no
We only have it iced”
So we jumped up on the table
And shouted “anarchy”
And someone played a Beach Boys song
On the jukebox
It was “California Dreamin'”
So we started screamin’
“On such a winter’s day”

She took me to her parents
For a Sunday meal
Her father took one look at me
And he began to squeal
Punk rock girl it makes no sense
Punk rock girl your dad is the Vice President
Rich as the Duke of Earl
Yeah you’re for me punk rock girl

We went to a shopping mall
And laughed at all the shoppers
And security guards trailed us
To a record shop
We asked for Mojo Nixon
They said “He don’t work here”
We said “If you don’t got Mojo Nixon
Then your store could use some fixin'”

We got into a car
Away we started rollin’
I said “How much you pay for this?”
She said “Nothing man, it’s stolen”
Punk rock girl you look so wild
Punk rock girl let’s have a child
We’ll name her Minnie Pearl
Just you and me
Eating fudge banana swirl
Just you and me
We’ll travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl

Your Mom

    You’re Mother is so adorable and we hope you grow up just like her. She is a very strong, emotionally and physically, determined and she has a very big heart. To watch her with you makes my heart sing. Your Dad is also strong, determined and will do anything for you. They both look at you with wonder and love in their eyes. Your Dad won’t let you out of his sight already. When you grow up and start having boyfriends you’re going to have to watch out for Dad. You have the best parents there are. You are so darn lucky! It is going to be very special watching you grow up.
    Lot’s of love and kisses from Gram-Gram XXXOOO
