This one's from 1971, a song I hadn't heard since then, from a long-forgotten rock band called Wishbone Ash. The title's a bit risque --- "Jail Bait" --- but musicianship is great and this superb, tight band is a happy return to those 1960s "British Invasion" days, before they all started copying each other (the state of rock today).

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Or maybe a folk rock version.

I watched this as a kid, and was totally in love with her. Couldn't completely understand the lyrics, but figured out it was something about her misbehaviour. Because of her pronunciation, I always thought that "really" is actually "wreally".

Totally, like, Gag me with a spoon, fer shurrrre...

Ya know, this one hit wonder made a serious cultural statement/impact, it's as if this piece is a living time capsule that can be opened at any time and studied by future generations.
I remember this time well, living in Ca Valley during this period, this slang/lingo, Slingo was on everybody's lips, be it kids doing it for who knows why, or us adults because it was irritating and a way of making fun of ignorant little rich bitches in Beverly Hills, which is kind of where this really took off.
I remember hearing it got its roots from so-called NY Elite bitches and their snobby offspring spoiled lot living in Beverly Hills/Hollywood infected the locals and the rest is history.
They got slammed socially thanks to this song which focused attention on the spoiled and even speech clinics were set up to save these girls from themselves, of course, this was to milk mommy of her treasures, she happily paid because their daughters were a blight in their social circles.

In fact, now that I think about it, this song focusing on the issue, may have been the trigger that ended Valle Girl speak.
