Classic Girl

Classic Girl by Jane’s Addiction is a love song about Perry’s then girlfriend Casey Niccoli, written in early 1987 by Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro. In early performances of this song Perry sang the line ‘circus bears on the quilt I wore’ instead of ‘dinosaurs on the quilt I wore’.

Lyrics

4:05; in my neighborhood,
When shots go off, no one bothers
A “POP,” and a reply
“POP,” and no reply…
Dinosaurs on the quilt I wore, with a girl
Such a classic girl…
Such a classic girl…

Such a classic girl, gives her man a great idea
Hears you tell your friends,
“Hey man, why don’t you listen to my great idea!”
It’s true, yeah I am a villain when you fall ill, that’s probably because men never can be
Not like a girl
Such a classic girl…
Such a classic girl…

They may say, “Those were the days…,”
but in a way, you know for us these are the days
Yes, for us these are the days, and you know you’re my girl!
Such a classic girl…
Such a classic girl…
You know for us these are the days
Hey, hey!

Music Video

The Classic Girl video was directed by Casey Niccoli. It features Perry Farrell and Casey in a Santarian marriage ritual. It is taken from Perry and Casey’s movie Gift, however unlike the movie, nudity that appears in the photographs that Perry looks through are blurred for airing on television.

    1. asi es la bella ceremonia que ustedes ven mis amigos es en el mistico catemaco veracruz y al final el mensaje de despedida esta sincronizado con un pase magico de una bruja, es un gran video y una llave a los secretos de la brujeria
