Wishful Thinking and One Good Tune

If I asked you to describe your "Dream Girl", what would be some of the characteristics you would name off? Would she be tall or short? What color would her hair be? Would she be a morning or night person?

Where am I going with this? Well let me explain...
In 2001 Cake released a song called "Short Skirt/Long Jacket". The whole song is focused around an individual's ideal "Dream Girl" and the specific traits she would possess.
This person's dream girl seems to have it all from "a mind like a diamond" to "eyes that burn like cigarettes".

I've listened to this song more times than I can probably count and suggest you people take a listen to it as well. The lyrics are killer, but its the instrumental that makes this song so damn catchy.

Now if I could only find myself a girl with half of the traits listed in this song.....

My favourite line in Short Skirt / Long Jacket always was "She uses a machete to cut through red tape."
