Apparently ballet girls also stand accused of snobbism, superficiality, bad judgment, and willingness to submit to conventional social pressure. I love the punishment the lyricist has chosen: single mom stuck in the house with the baby, having to watch the world pass her by on tv. No suggestion that she might actually be dancing for a living, and loving it.
He wanted her, she'd never tell
secretly she wanted him as well,
but all of her friends stuck up their nose
they had a problem with his baggy clothes.
He was a skater boy, she said see ya later boy
he wasn't good enough for her
She had a pretty face, but her head was up in space
she needed to come back down to earth.
five years from now, she sits at home
feeding the baby
she's all alone
she turns on tv
guess who she sees
skater boy rockin' up MTV
[ ... ] now he's a super star
slammin' on his guitar
does your pretty face see what he's worth?
sorry girl but you missed out
well tuff luck that boys mine now
[ ... ] too bad that you couldn't see
that man that boy could be
there is more than meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside.

No, ballet isn't a real job like being a pop singer.
That's exactly what Mick Jagger thought
Me and Nureyev have flaming rows about whether it takes more talent and discipline to be a ballet dancer or a pop singer. He used to put me down a lot, but I think I've converted him.
- Mick Jagger, 1972
