"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" is the fourth track from Miley Cyrus's second studio album, Breakout. The song is a cover of the popular hit-song "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" by Cindi Lauper, released in 1984.

Background, Composition and ReceptionEdit

Lauper and Cyrus met at the 2008 Grammy Awards, during the period the latter was working on Breakout, and Lauper suggested Cyrus do a cover of a song, and when she asked her about "Girls Just Want to Have Fun", Lauper gave her complete permission to cover the song. 

The cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" replaces the subtle reggae undercurrent in the original version with a more rock music driven sound that includes pop punk beats and string stabs. The lyrics of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" primarily discuss the "desire to let loose with one's friends", touching upon details of the life of an overworked child star.

The song recieved generally lukewarm critical reception. 

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I come home in the morning light
My mother says, "When you gonna live your life right?"
Oh, mother dear, we're not the fortunate ones
And girls, they wanna to have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

[Verse 2]
The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells, "What you gonna do with your life?"
Oh, daddy dear, you know you're still number one
And girls, they wanna to have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

[Chorus]
That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

[Post-Chorus]
Girls they wanna, wanna have fun
Girls, they wanna have

[Verse 3]
Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

[Chorus]
That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

[Post-Chorus]
Girls they wanna, wanna have fun
Girls, they wanna have

[Bridge]
They just want, they just want
They just want, they just want

[Chorus]
That's all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna have fun
Oh, girls just wanna have fun

[Post-Chorus]
Girls they wanna, wanna have fun
Girls, they wanna have

[Outro]
When the working, when the working
When the working day is done
Oh, when the working day is done
Oh, girls, they wanna to have fun
Girls they wanna, wanna have fun
Girls, they wanna have
Girls they wanna, wanna have fun
Girls, they wanna have
