Short Skirt / Long Jacket: serious or satire?

I want a girl who gets up early I want a girl who stays up late I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity Who uses a machete, to cut through red tape…. I want a girl with a smooth liquidation I want a girl with good dividends…. Of similar origin is the outdated but applicable Hemline Index, developed by George Taylor in The main finding is that the urban legend holds true but with a time lag of about three years. Hence, the current economic crisis predicts ankle length shirts around and If there is any indication that C-Suites will begin to take guidance up, the sky is the limit because then you have the earnings power PLUS a turn or two of multiple expansion in the cards. This index introduced in , is an equally weighted index using a geometric average.

The first of the series, Literary Song Analysis endeavors to deconstruct popular songs, revealing deep thematic ideas representing the conflict of the modern era through pedantic, superfluous, overly academic writing and ample doses of exaggeration. This conflict manifests itself in the titular fashion combination of a short skirt and long jacket, transforming it into a metaphor for the double standard modern-day American society places upon its female population.

Short Skirt / Long Jacket lyrics

Mais acessadas de Cake. I want a girl with a mind like a diamond, I want a girl who knows what's best, I want a girl with shoes that cut, and eyes that burn like cigarettes. I want a girl with the right allocations, Who is fast, and thorough, and sharp as a tack. She's playing with her jewelry, She's putting up her hair, She's touring the facility and picking up slack.

Maybe song lyrics are a trivial a thing to start a thread on, but I had a debate with a friend recently about whether this song one of my favorites is serious or satirical. She thinks it's about a dude who really wants a successful, professional chick, and that the song is empowering to women for this reason. I think she's completely missing the point and getting taken in by the joke - that the song is really a caricature of that sort of superficial woman, and about qualities that are typically not at all desirable in a significant other. So everybody's right, in a way. Probably not much left to say after reading the author's own explanation of the song

Short Skirt / Long Jacket

Wow, you people are some kind of simple. In summary, the song is describing a man's vision of the perfect woman, someone with both a fun, sexy, and materialistic side and an intelligent, practical, and responsible side. The lines alternate between those two extremes. He wants a head-strong responsible woman. The short skirt is the fun-loving sex appeal, and the long jacket is the power and responsibility. If you wanted to take the interpretation even further, you can say John McCrea is pointing out that the ideal woman is unrealistic. This can be supported with the lyrics, "I want a girl who gets up early.

I want a girl with a short skirt and a long jacket. I want a girl who gets up early. I want a girl who stays up late. I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity. Who uses.

The lyrics begin to describe an ideal fantasy woman, beginning with the simple desire for a woman with a short skirt and a long jacket , but then the descriptions go on to become much more elaborate and very specific, as if to tell a story about a particular woman. John McCrea said the song was "about prosperity and depression" and the strange behavior of the human mating ritual. The associated music vox pop video is composed entirely of people listening to the song on headphones and their reactions.
