Oh Stephanie
(Rogers)

Your sister and I
We think about you every time we walk past the skate shop
On Halsted Street and Altgeld Avenue

And we yin and yang
About you every time we see a fat plastic buddha
In a junk store window calling out your name...out your name

And "Oh Stephanie," she laughs,
"I'll never have your perfect skin."
And "Oh Stephanie," she cries,
"I never seem to have enough time with you."

The girl without hair
She stares at us in record stores all over the city
And makes me and your sister talk about you... about you

And the Century Mall
With all its beads and earrings and its activist T-shirts
It asks us when you're coming back to town... into town

And "Oh Stephanie," she laughs,
"I'll never have your pretty hair."
And "Oh Stephanie," she cries,
"I never seem to have enough time with you."

Everybody's room looks a little black In the dead of the night
But open up your door a crack
And we'll do our best to cast you a little more light

"Oh Stephanie," she laughs, "I'll never have your skinny legs"
And "Oh Stephanie," she laughs, "I'll never have you perfect skin"
And "Oh Stephanie," she laughs, "I'll never have your pretty hair"
And "Oh Stephanie," she cries,
"I never seem to have enough time with you."

Your sister and I
We think about you every time we walk past the skate shop
