Sunday Girl Lyrics


I know a girl from a lonely street
Cold as ice cream but still as sweet
Dry your eyes Sunday girl
Hey, I saw your guy with a different girl
Looks like he's in another world
Run and hide Sunday girl

Hurry up, hurry up and wait
I say...

    It's obvious to me that Blondie is singing about her attraction for a pretty girl who's being cheated on by her boyfriend. It's an unfulfilled, girl-on-girl love song.

    Girl with a crush on a boy who isn’t so much in love with her and who she knows is slipping away to be with girls who are more accessible. Love, love this song - anthem of my early youth!

    A sad song about a teen age girl going for an older guy but afraid to offend her parents. Debbie is so "from the heart"...the craving for love and the good life that only an orphan can feel and Express...

    She loves a boy who doesn't love her in 11:59 she sings about about something "that could be the end of her" that is the boy she loves marriage to "Sunday girl"

    My very sad interpretation of this song is that it is about a girl 'Sunday girl' who is secretly in love with a guy and daydreams of being his girlfriend while spending her life locked in her room away from the real world because of her parents being strict bigots. Little does she know that he has a life and a real girlfriend and does not even notice 'Sunday girl' exists and cares so much about him.

    Watch the documentary "Blondie's New York." All the original members of the band confirm that Chris Stein wrote it about Debbie. He and Debbie would previously state in interviews that it was about a Cat, though.

    I think the song is about two girls who are involved with the same guy. Sunday girl is her girlfriend and the other girl (the girl who sings) is the lover. Sunday girl doesn't know that her boyfriend is cheating on her. The lover and the guy see each other on Sundays when Sunday girl stays at home.

    I read in the 80s that Chris Stein said that the Sunday Girl was a cat - not very romantic, but then if this site really wants what the song was about!!! Anyway, adapting it to first interpretation given here is more fun to have in mind than a pussy cat.

    This is a song that comes from a girl's point of view. She has a lover who wants her to be everywhere but unfortunately has overbearing parents and she has to just live her life inside her room. She tells her boyfriend "i'd like to go out with you tonight but if I go with you my folks will get uptight 'stay home sunday girl'". She'd like to love but at the same time can't because she's either too young or it really is her parents.
