Verse 1:
[B5] Debbie just hit the wall
[E5] she never had it all
[G#5] one Prozac a day
[F#5] husbands a CPA
[B5] her dreams went out the door
[E5] when she turned twenty four
[G#] only been with one man
[F#5] what happen to her plan?
[B5] She was gonna be an actress
[E5] she was gonna be a star
[G#5] she was gonna shake her ass
[F#5] on the hood of white snake’s car
[B5] her yellow SUV
[E5] is now the enemy
[G#5] looks at her average life
[F#5] and nothing[F#5] has been[F#5] alright

Chorus:
since Bruce Spr[B5]ingstein, Madonna
w[E5]ay before Nirvana
there was [G#5]U2 and Blondie
and mu[A5]sic still on MTV
her t[B5]wo kids in high school
they te[E5]ll her that she’s uncool
but s[G#5]he's still preoccupied
[A5] with 19[A5], 19,[A5] 1985
Intro: (after ending 1 go straight into verse 2)
Verse 2: (same as verse 1)
She’s seen all the classics
she knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink
even Saint Elmo’s Fire
she rocked out to wham
not a big Limp Biscuit fan
thought she’d get a hand
on a member of Duran Duran
Where’s the mini-skirt made of snake skin
and who’s the other guy singing in Van Halen
when did reality become T.V.
what ever happen to sitcoms, game shows
(on the radio there was)
Chorus:

Verse 3: (same chords as verses 1 and 2, listen for strumming pattern)
She hates time make it stop
when did Motley Crew become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this stop
Stop!
Chorus: (a little different cause of the repeat, so i put in the chords)
and bring bac[B5]k Bruce Springstein, Madonna
w[E5]ay before Nirvana
there was [G#5]U2 and Blondie
and mu[A5]sic still on MTV
her t[B5]wo kids in high school
they te[E5]ll her that she’s uncool
but s[G#5]he's still preoccupied
[A5] with 1985
since Bruce S[B5]pringstein, Madonna
w[E5]ay before Nirvana
there was [G#5]U2 and Blondie
and mu[A5]sic still on MTV
her t[B5]wo kids in high school
they te[E5]ll her that she’s uncool
but s[G#5]he's still preoccupied
[A5] with 19[A5], 19,[A5] 1985
