Material girl - Me against the music - Mer girl - More - Mother and father - Music

Material girl

Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me

I think they're o.k.

If they don't give me proper credit

I just walk away

 

They can beg and they can plead

But they can't see the light, that's right

'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash

Is always Mister Right

 

'Cause we're living in a material world

And I am a material girl

You know that we are living in a material world

And I am a material girl

 

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance

That's all right with me

If they can't raise my interest then I have to let them be

 

Some boys try and some boys lie but

I don't let them play (that way)

Only boys that save their pennies make my rainy day

 

'Cause we're living in a material world

And I am a material girl

You know that we are living in a material world

And I am a material girl

Living in a material world

And I am a material girl

You know that we are living in a material world

And I am a material girl

 

(living in a material world) Material (living in a material world)

(living in a material world) Material (living in a material world)

 

Boys may come and boys may go

And that's all right you see

Experience has made me rich

And now they're after me

 

'Cause everbody's living in a material world

And I am a material girl

You know that we are living in a material world

And I am a material girl

Living in a material world

And I am a material girl

You know that we are living in a material world

And I am a material girl

 

A material, a material, a material, a material world

(living in a material world) Material (living in a material world)

(living in a material world) Material (living in a material world)

(living in a material world) Material (living in a material world)

(living in a material world) Material (living in a material world)

Mer girl

 

I ran from my house that cannot contain me

From the man that I cannot keep

From my mother who haunts me even though she's gone

From my daughter that never sleeps

I ran from the noise and the silence

And the traffic on the streets

 

I ran to the treetops

I ran to the sky, out to the lake, into the rain that matted my hair

And soaked my shoes and skin

Hid my tears, hid my fears

 

I ran to the forest, I ran to the trees

I ran and I ran

I was looking for me

 

I ran past the churches and the crowded old mailbox

Past the apple orchards and the lady that never talks

Up into the hills

I ran to the cemetery and held my breathe and thought about your death

 

I ran to the lake up into the hills

I ran and I ran

I'm looking there still

 

And I saw the crumbling tombstones, all the forgotten names

I tasted the rain, I tasted my tears

I cursed the angels, I tasted my fears

And the ground gave way beneath my feet and the earth took me in her arms

Leaves covered my face, ants marched across my back

The black sky opened up, blinding me

 

I ran to the forest, I ran to the trees

I ran and I ran

I was looking for me

I ran to the lakes and up to the hill

I ran and I ran

I'm looking there still

 

And I smelt her burning flesh, her rotting bones, her decay

I ran and I ran

I'm still running away

 

More

 

Once upon a time I had plenty of nothing

Which was fine with me

Because I had rhythm, music, love

The sun, the stars and the moon above

Had the clear blue sky and the deep blue sea

That was when the best things in life were free

 

Then time went by and now I got plenty of plenty

Which is fine with me

'Cause I still got love, I still got rhythm

But look at what I got to go with 'em

"Who could ask for anything more?", I hear you query

Who would ask for anything more? Well, let me tell you, dearie

 

Got my diamonds, got my yacht, got a guy I adore

I'm so happy with what I got, I want more!

 

Count your blessings, one, two, three

I just hate keeping score

Any number is fine with me

As long as it's more

As long as it's more!

 

I'm no mathematician, all I know is addition

I find counting a bore

Keep the number mounting, your accountant does the counting

(More! More!)

 

I got rhythm, music too, just as much as before

Got my guy and my sky of blue

Now, however, I own the view

More is better than nothing, true

But nothing's better than more, more, more

Nothing's better than more

 

One is fun, why not two?

And if you like two, you might as well have four

And if you like four, why not a few

Why not a slew

More! More!

 

If you've got a little, why not a lot?

Add and bit and it'll get to be an oodle

Every jot and tittle adds to the pot

Soon you've got the kit as well as the caboodle

More! More!

 

Never say when, never stop at plenty

If it's gonna rain, let it pour

Happy with ten, happier with twenty

If you like a penny, wouldn't you like many much more?

 

Or does that sound too greedy?

That's not greed, no, indeedy

That's just stocking the store

Gotta fill your cupboard, remember Mother Hubbard

More! More!

 

Each possession you possess

Helps your spirits to soar

That's what's soothing about excess

Never settle for something less

Something's better than nothing, yes!

But nothing's better than more, more, more

(Except all, all, all)

Except all, all, all

Except once you have it all (have it al

You may find all else above (else above)

That though things are bliss

There's one thing you miss, and that's

More! More!

More! More! More! More!

More! More! More!

 

Mother and father

 

There was a time I was happy in my life

There was time I believed I'd live forever

There was a time that I prayed to Jesus Christ

There was a time I had a mother it was nice

Nobody else would ever take the place of you

Nobody else could do the things that you could do

No one else I guess could hurt me like you did

I didn't understand I was just a kid

 

Oh mother why aren't you here with me

No one else saw the things that you could see

I'm trying hard to dry my tears

Yes father you know I'm not so free

 

I got to give it up

Find someone to love me

I got to let it go

Find someone that I can care for

I got to give it up

Find someone to love me

I got to let it go

Find someone that I can care for

 

There was a time I was happy in my life

There was time I believed I'd live forever

There was a time that I prayed to Jesus Christ

There was a time I had a mother it was nice

 

Oh mother why aren't you here with me

No one else saw the things that you could see

I'm trying hard to dry my tears

Yes father you know I'm not so free

 

I got to give it up

Find someone to love me

I got to let it go

Find someone that I can care for

I got to give it up

Find someone to love me

I got to let it go

Find someone that I can care for

 

My mother died when I was five

And all I did was sit and cry

I cried and cried and cried all day

Until the neighbours went away

 

They couldn't take my loneliness

I couldn't take their phoniness

My father had to go to work

I used to think he was a jerk

 

I didn't know his heart was broken

And not another word was spoken

He became a shadow of

The father I was dreaming of

 

I made a vow that I would never need another person ever

Turned my heart into a cage a victim of a kind of rage

 

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

 

I've got to give it up

Find someone to love me

I've got to let it go

Find someone that I can care for

I got to give it up

Find someone to love me

I got to let it go

Find someone that I can care for

Find someone that I can care for

Find someone that I can care for

 

I got to give it up

I got to give it up

I got to give it up

I got to give it up

I got to give it up

I got to give it up

 

I got to let it go

I got to give it up

 

Oh mother

Oh father

I gotta give it up

 

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

I gotta give it up

 

Music

DJ put a record on

I wanna dance with my baby

 

Do you like to boogie woogie?

Do you like to boogie woogie?

Do you like to boogie woogie?

Do you like my dancing?

 

Hey Mr DJ put a record on

I wanna dance with my baby

And when the music starts

I never wanna stop

It's gonna drive me crazy

 

Music, music

Music makes the people come together

Music mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel

 

Don't think of yesterday and I don't look at the clock

I like to boogie woogie

It's like ridin' on the wind and it never goes away

But she's everything I'm in got to have it everyday

 

Music makes the people come together

Music mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel

 

Hey Mr DJ

 

Do you like to boogie woogie?

Do you like to boogie woogie?

Do you like my dancing?

 

Hey Mr DJ put a record on

Nobody knows me - Nobody's perfect - Nothing fails - Nothing really matters - Now I'm following you (part 1) - Now I'm following you (part 2)

Nobody knows me

 

I've had so many lives

Since I was a child

And I realise

How many times I've died

I'm not that kind of guy

Sometimes I feel shy

I think I can fly

Closer to the sky

 

No ones telling you how to live your life

But it's a setup until you're fed up

 

This world is not so kind

People trap your mind

It's so hard to find

Someone to admire

 

I… I sleep much better at night

I feel closer to the light

Now I'm gonna try

To improve my life

 

No ones telling you how to live your life

But it's a setup until you're fed up

It's no good when you're misunderstood

But why should I care?

What the world thinks of me

Won't let a stranger

Give me a social disease

 

Nobody, nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

 

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

 

No ones telling you how to live my life

But it's a setup, and I'm just fed up

It's no good when you're misunderstood

But why should I care?

What the world thinks of me

Won't let a stranger

Give me a social disease

 

I don't want no lies

I don't watch TV

I don't waste my time

Won't read a magazine

 

I don't want no lies

I don't watch TV

I don't waste my time

Won't read a magazine

 

I… I sleep much better at night

I feel closer to the light

Now I'm gonna try

To improve my life

 

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

 

*Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like, like you know me

Like you know me

Like you know me

Like you know me

Like you know me

 

*(Its no fun but the damage is done

Don't want your social disease

Don't want your social disease)

 

**Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Like you know me

 

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Nobody knows me

Don't want your social disease

 

**(I don't want no lies

I don't watch TV

I don't waste my time

Won't read a magazine

I don't want no lies

I don't watch TV

Won't read a magazine)

 

Nobody's perfect

 

Cool I am, when I am with you

Cool I'm not when I am lonely

 

I feel so sad, what I did wasn't right

I feel so bad and I must say to you

Sorry, but...

 

Nobody's perfect, nobody's perfect

What did you expect

I'm doing my best

 

I feel so sad but you know I'll be true

I feel so bad and I must say to you

Sorry, but...

 

Nobody's perfect, nobody's perfect

What did you expect

I'm doing my best

 

Nobody's perfect, nobody's perfect

I was dishonest, I will do my best, yeah

 

Cool I am, when I am with you

Cool I'm not when I am lonely

 

Nobody's perfect, nobody's perfect

What did you expect

I'm doing my best

 

Nobody's perfect, nobody's perfect

I was dishonest, I will do my best, yeah

 

Yeah, yeah, perfect, perfect...

 

Nothing fails

 

I'm in love with you, you silly thing

Anyone can see

What is it with you, you silly thing

Just take it from me

It was not a chance meeting

Feel my heart beating

You're the one

 

You could take all this, take it away

I'd still have it all

Cause I've climbed the tree of life

And that is why, no longer scared if I fall

 

When I get lost in space

I can return to this place

Cause, you're the one

 

Nothing fails

No more fears

Nothing fails

You washed away my tears

Nothing fails

No more fears

Nothing fails

Nothing fails

 

I'm not religious

But I feel so moved

Makes me want to pray,

Pray you'll always be here

 

I'm not religious

But I feel such love

Makes me want to pray

 

When I get lost in space

I can return to this place

Cause, you're the one

 

I'm not religious

But I feel so moved

I'm not religious

Makes me wanna pray

I'm not religious

But I feel so moved

I'm not religious

Makes me want to pray

 

Nothing fails

No more fears

Nothing fails

You washed away my tears

Nothing fails

No more fears

Nothing fails

 

Nothing really matters

When I was very young nothing really mattered to me

But making myself happy I was the only one

Now that I am grown everything's changed

I'll never be the same because of you

 

Nothing really matters, love is all we need

Everything I give you all comes back to me

 

Looking at my life, it's very clear to me

I lived so selfishly I was the only one

I realize that nobody wins

Something is ending and something begins

 

Nothing really matters, love is all we need

Everything I give you all comes back to me

Nothing really matters, love is all we need

Everything I give you all comes back to me

 

Nothing tastes the past away like the future

Nothing makes the darkness go like the light

You're shelter from the storm, give me confort in your arms

 

Nothing really matters, love is all we need

Everything I give you all comes back to me

Nothing really matters, love is all we need

Everything I give you all comes back to me...

 

Le clip a été tourné une journée à Stockholm et une journée à New-York. Les effets spéciaux ont été fait à Stockholm, et des figurants ont été pris dans la rue. Le producteur est Johan Renck avec qui Madonna voulait travailler. C'est un thème sur l'univers japonais futuriste. On peut y croiser quelques thèmes (enfance, jeunesse, innocence, naïveté, plastique). Le jeu 'Quake' a inspiré la madone sur le plan de la rapidité de certaines séquences. Le clip a pour thème aussi Hatsumono ('mémoires d'une geisha'), elle veut lui ressembler. Elle entraîne les garçons à chanter et danser avec elle... La japanese Butoh dance et les dessins animés ont inspirés le producteur. (Phénomène américain)

Rumeur : Elle aurait tourné ce clip dans l'espoir de décrocher le rôle dans l'adaptation cinématographique des 'mémoire d'une geisha'.
