Philharmonic Neon – Morning Girl
Supposed meaning: When “she” wakes up with “him”, she had sex for the first time and that makes her a woman now — which is the meaning of several ages older. It also infers that she is “years less than 18” because she wouldn’t legally turn into a woman, until she was 18 … and now she is SEVERAL YEARS OLDER. We are guessing she was 14 or 15.
I always thought this song was about a guy waking up next to a girl whose virginity he had taken the night before. (i.e. Love is more than just kisses). Not such an innocent song after all…hahahaha!
In the song, “You know love is more than kisses, A whole lot more” also infers that she was too young to know about sex — and only thought “love” was about kisses. After “last night”, she knows it is a WHOLE LOT MORE THAN KISSES.
Mornin’ girl, how’d ya sleep last night?
You’re sev’ral ages older now
Your eyes have started showin’ how
The little girl’s growin’ now
Mornin’ girl, was that you last night?
Crying on the radio
Beggin’ for a way to go
To go back where love wasn’t jumbled so
Oh, no, things are different now than they were before
You know love is more than kisses
A whole lot more
Mornin’ girl, put your dreams away
And read your box of Cheerios
And powder-puff that pretty nose
And go out and find your man where the wild wind blows
