Slimcea Girl 🎶

Slimcea Girl is a song sung by Siobhan de Maré, of the Mono (UK band).

“Mono ❀ 〈Slimcea Girl〉”
Title: Slimcea Girl
Singer: Siobhan de Maré
Lyrics: ?
Music: ?
As she walked down the street
The rain began to fall
He called out
But she passed on by
Like she never noticed him at all

Then the words of the song
Remind her of those days
Sees herself in the face of a stranger
Sat in a station road cafe

She remembers the day
When things were going her way
Only memories remain of

The way she used to be
Way she used to be

She stays home every night
And exaggerates her past
Now he knows
That slimcea girl
And she lives alone in Prozac Park

All the old photographs
Were never thrown away
She looks through them
For what made her cry
And then she decides live for today

She remembers the day
When things were going her way
Only memories remain of

The way she used to be
Way she used to be


“Why don't you come to me ?”
“… I'll come with you”

The way she used to be
Way she used to be

She'll never go back again
The way she used to be
Way she used to be
She'll never go back again

O, the ephemeralness of blossoms.

Slimcea seems to be a trademark of a dieting bread, i.e. advertised to women who wishes to stay slim. (if you know more about Slimcea bread, please let me know.)

Look at the lyrics:

Now he knows
That slimcea girl
And she lives alone in Prozac Park

How cruel a world, just yesterday he is ignored like a stone. But now she has told him where she lives, and that she lives alone in Prozac Park! Prozac is a anti-depressant.

And look at the English idiom: “When things were going her way”. When things are not going your way, things are not well. You want things to go your way, as opposed to away. You want to be noticed, and be of interest.

Ingénue

Here's another great song of Mono sung by Siobhan de Maré, called Life in Mono. Note the word Ingénue.

“Mono ❀ 〈Ingenue〉”
Title: Life in Mono
Singer: Siobhan de Maré
Lyrics: ?
Music: Martin Virgo?
The stranger sang a theme
From someone else's dream
The leaves began to fall
And no one spoke at all
But I can't seem to recall
When you came along
Ingénue

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

The tree-lined avenue
Begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets
In tea and cigarettes
But I can't seem to forget
When you came along
Ingénue

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
I just don't know what to do

Ingénue
