Words by Vonda Shepard & Michael Ruff
Music by Vonda Shepard

Got one now with a Catholic name
A little less righteous, she ain't quite the same
Walkin' the streets under the media moon
Silvery screen paints her sultry tune
She wears her lipstick outside of the lines
Picture on the cover of the New York Times
The mole on her cheek looks like her very own
She lives and breathes in a new Marilyn home

(Chorus)

A new Marilyn, a new Marilyn
Everybody's lookin' for a new Marilyn
Everywhere I go, everywhere I been
Everybody's lookin' for a new Marilyn

Where would she be after twenty-five years
What would she think if she were to hear
Everywhere you look there's somebody new
Trying to replace you, trying to replace you...Marilyn

(Chorus)

A new Marilyn, a new Marilyn
Everybody's lookin' for a new you know who
Everywhere I go, everywhere I been
Everybody's lookin' for a new Marilyn
A new Marilyn, a new Marilyn
Everybody's lookin' for a new you know who
Everywhere I go, everywhere I been
Everybody's lookin' for a new Marilyn

(Isn't this a great party?)

(Chorus)

A new Marilyn, a new Marilyn
Everybody's lookin' for a new you know who
Everywhere I go, everywhere I been
Everybody's lookin' for a new Marilyn
