''I had to alter the lyrics from Hazard's original. It was originally about how fortunate he was 'cause he was a guy around these girls that wanted to have 'fun' - with him - down there, which we do not speak lest we go blind.'' - Cyndi Lauper
"I wanted 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' to be an anthem for women around the world - and I mean all women - and a sustaining message that we are powerful human beings. I made sure that when a woman saw the video, she would see herself represented, whether she was thin or heavy, glamorous or not, and whatever race she was." - Cyndi Lauper
“It was very blatantly feminist. It doesn’t mean that girls just want to f—. … It just means that girls want to have the same damn experience that any man could have.” - Cyndi Lauper
