So your girlfriend wants to be a popstar

And beat the charts outta me

She wants to move a million units man

Probably just to prove she can

And after a couple of hits

She'll be buying a new pair of mitts

I can see just where she's heading

She's as predictable as armageddon



Oh, they don't make 'em like they used to

They don't make 'em like they used to

No, they don't make 'em like they used to

- you should have just stuck with me



Your girlfriend wants to be a popstar

And live in primrose hell

She'll join the meritocracy

And get to meet all of rocks aristocracy

And be someone everyone knows

Who all the designers send all their new clothes

But when she starts to look like kylie minogue

She might even get her picture in vogue



Baby they don't make 'em like they used to

They don't make 'em like they used to

No, they don't make 'em like they used to

- you should have just stuck with me



Your baby wants to be a popstar

Probably just to spite me

She thinks it's so easy to get to the top

But a girl like that, she won't know where to stop

And when her most recent therapist

Suggests that maybe she become a buddhist

She might even consider giving up red meat

Man, you're gonna look back to when your life was so sweet



You know, they just don't make 'em like they used to

No, they don't make 'em like they used to, baby

They just don't make 'em like they used to

Yeah - you should have just stuck with me

You should have just stuck with me, baby
