I know a girl from a lonely street

My new novel (due out next July) finally has a title. It's working title for ages has been Ruby-lee, which is the main character's name, but I always knew this wasn't what was going to be on the front cover. There's something weird about having a book with no name, especially when you're onto the two and a halfth draft. But as of today it is called something.

Sunday Girl.

K-nick-ered from a Blondie song.

"I know a girl from a lonely street
Cold as ice cream but still as sweet
Dry your eyes Sunday girl"

Heh heh heh. I just pasted the French bit of the song into a translator.

Hey, I saw your guy with another girl
It seemed in another world
Cacher Sunday Chorus girl goes to you
When I saw again you to the summer I decided
If your love was similar to Mien
I can remain Sunday chorus girl
Hurry up
Dispatch you and wait
All week absentee and however I waits*
I am down in the dumps, I ask you come to see
What your love represents for me
Hurry up, dispatch you and wait
All week absentee and however I waits
I am down in the dumps, I took it to you come to see
What your love represents

*sounds lolcattish

J'adore that song!

Ten weeks of French classes and that's the best I can come up with!

Elvis was there first.

Well, since my baby left me,
I found a new place to dwell.
Its down at the end of lonely street
At heartbreak hotel.

You make me so lonely baby,
I get so lonely,
I get so lonely I could die.

Good title, good company
