I got the Good Charlotte cd, finally...I was listening to ďGirls and BoysĒ, then went downstairs to peel an orange, b/c my mom wants me to be healthy and blah blah blah...anyways, later upstairs, continuing the song, w/orange peel under my nails...which I need to cut, hmmm, anyways, moving onÖI was thinking what do boys like-slash-want, whatever in a girl...I mean, like not physically, like the personality, and what theyíre hobbies would be, what would u want in a girl if u got to pick, I meanÖI just woke up from that summer lethargic disease...then picked up the inky black pen, scribbled random linesÖneed I say more?

What Do Boys Want???

I donít know whether to cry or laugh,
When you go outta your way to make me happy,
Youíd do anything, everything, even teach me math,
You donít understand me, I guess not,
I mean I appreciate it, but
Iím just not used to thisÖ

What do boys want???
A girl who shops, wanting everything?
What do boys want???
A girl who wants you to hold the door, nicely?

I just donít get it,
Never mind forget it.

I canít control my mood swings,
Donít tell me bout your feelings,
I canít be happy all the time,
All your money,
Wonít satisfy,
All I want is you,
Donít mind me, because I know you mind.

What do boys want???
To be some shining knight?
What do boys want???
To be the one who pays every night?

Does a boy want a girl who canít stand up for herself?
A girl who doesnít where the cards should be dealt?
A girl who canít take life as it is?
A girl whoís just a five foot three, spoiled kid.

Does a boy have to call every night?
I mean, wouldnít the phone bill get longer,
Now that isnít fair or right.
Does a boy have to peel the orange for me,
Does a boy want a girl that doesnít want orange peel under her nails,
And gets zeros, because her common sense fails,

I just donít get it,
Never mind, forget it.

How bout for one night,
Letís not go to another four-star place,
Letís not have your wallet turn more light,
Cheaper fun,
Can come,
If you know where to go,
Too fast, too slow,
Youíve missed too much, I know,
Start up the car ignition,
No specific mission,
Letís just go to the middle of nowhere,
breathing in the stars and the summer breeze,
filling the air,
Better than the usual movies.
Watch ducks fly by,
And listen to the radio,
Make fun of the teachers we know, so...

This is what I want, are you ready to go?

Thatís such a long bridge, well that could be another verse, that would still be a long verse tho...heh. Oh well. Anyways, I know this is so second-rate, nah, itís third, nah, fourth, nah, nah, nah, thirteenth-rate...uhhh, but this was the best I could come up w/...I just canít believe Iím writing worse outta summer school...everythingís the one I can blame, just me, whatís wrong w/this picture assembly...anyways, Iím rambling, and rhyming in half-hopefulness, and the other half-knoing that this wonít work, so Iíll wait for another inspiring idea to poke myself outta this summer drawl...l8er and thank u for reading...


---rock on, rock out and rock away, b/c that's what life's all bout, live it.---

Well written, here's your answer, guys want a moderate girl who they don't have to spend every cent on to make happy. Someone they can be with as a companion, commisserate with, and someone who is smart enough to not be entirely dependant.
