Well I've been up to Paris
And I've slept in a park
Went down to Barcelona
Someone broke in my car
And I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

Took the train down to Athens
And I slept in a fountain
Some Swiss junkie in Turin
Ripped me off for my cash
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

The CRS on the metro
Shook me down for a bribe
On my knees for the sergeant
When my passport arrived
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl
Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl

Called my mom from a payphone
I said "I'm down to my last."
She said "I sent you to college
Now go call your dad."
And the waitress that he married
Well she hung up the phone
You know she never did like me
But I can stand on my own

Sold my plasma in Amsterdam
Spent it all in a night
Buying drinks at the Melk Weg
For a soldier in drag
And I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl
Euro-trash Girl, I'm a Euro-trash girl

Yeah, I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

Solo Johnny

Got a tattoo in Berlin
And a case of the crabs
A rose and a dagger
On the palm of my hand
And I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl
Euro-trash Girl, Euro-trash girl

Yeah, I'll search the world over
For my angel in black
Yeah, I'll search the world over
For a Euro-trash Girl

As an introduction to this song, Bill shared a funny anecdote about his days in radio.  A woman called the listener request line to complain about this song, and the following exchange ensued:

Caller: “Ugh!  Why are you playing this song?  The title, ‘You’re a Trash Girl...’ it’s so disrespectful of women!”

Bill: “It’s not ‘You’re a Trash Girl...’, it’s EURO Trash Girl.”

Caller: “Oh, and that’s any better?!” 

Stay classy! 
I absolutely love this song! My favourite Cracker song for sure. What a blast from the past! Now c'mon, sing it....SING IT! "EUROTRASH GIRL! {#Roflol}{#Cheesygrin}
I love this song and the group. Sorry for all you people that hate it. It is awesome and makes me laugh.

the worst tune I've heard since a long time. Old style stuff that resemble 100 others of the same type. And it is way too long, it never seem to end, What a torture. Redneck stuff from a garage band.  But don't worry in Quebec we also have this type of music from those bands that are starting and don't know much about music.  I've been in a band for too long to appreciate this overplayed type of song. Please loose the t{#Iamwithstupid}

Another brilliant work of art by Dave and Johnny.{#Bananajam}
American trash song.
I just love the dual-blues thing going with Davey's pained vocals and Johnny's WILD GUITAR! Still one of my faves from a classic disc!

Why does this never play when it comes up on PSD?
 
I guess you're just lucky.  ; )

This song is offensively horrible.

Sucko

Barfo.

Crappo.

 
LOL.  Yea, this band annoys me, too.  My friend begged me to go see them with him and was offended that I thought they sounded like watered down Tom Petty.  Our drunken friend kept shouting for "Skynyrd!!" and "Free Bird" in between songs.  Good times.

I'd argue this is one of the ten best rock albums from the early to mid '90s.

 
Now don't forget the debut albums by 4 Non Blondes and The Spin Doctors.

Brilliant, back packing through Europe in 93 and 95.  Do all backpackers in Europe have these similar experiences, Euro rail pass headaches, Swedish junkie singing Satellite of love to my future wife and I in Granada, it all puts a huge smile on my face.  Thanks Bill.

Why do you hate 5 year-olds?

 
Those little fingers freak me right out.
Thank you Bill for not just playing perfectly crafted music that appeals to EVERYONE.
This is what makes RP so great!

As an european - we love this one, specially in Scandinavia. It has a very high beer-factor, also among the girls. {#War}
 

 
Yeah somebody who gets it.  I love the country twang guitar as I grew up deep in the Appalachians.  I envision us and your euro girls doing a slow motion mosh pit around a camp fire.  Searching for our Angel in Black.{#Wink}

I get that people have differed tastes and this track may not be for everybody. But offensive? 



 
Willie,  I have joked on an occasion or two that my wife and I are 'trash'.  You should see the negative looks from other pasty-faced folks.  Wow!

I suspect that some folks feel incredibly insecure about their socio-economic status.  

Great song for today.  Possibly the 'trashiest' person to become president of the USA during my lifetime is now in power.

Offensive in the fact that it's absolute drivel. Sounds like something a 5yr old would write.
