Gwen Renée Stefani begint in 1992 als leadzangeres van de band No Doubt. De groep breekt in 1995 door met het album Tragic Kingdom, waarvan Don’t Speak in 1996 hun eerste hit wordt. De single komt voor zes weken op de eerste plaats. Pas in 2004 scoort de groep met It’s My Life (#4) opnieuw een top 10-hit.

Ondertussen is de zangeres dan al bezig met haar solo-carriere. Haar samenwerking met Eve op Let Me Blow Your Mind bracht haar in 2001 op de tweede plaats. In 2004 is What You Waiting For? (#7) haar eerste eigen hit. Eind 2006 verschijnt The Sweet Escape, haar tweede solo-album. In 2007 is 4 In The Morning haar tiende en voorlopig laatste solo-hit in ons land.

In 2014 is de zangeres zelf weer terug na een afwezigheid van ruim 7 jaar met de single en Alarmschijf Baby Don’t Lie dat in november in de Top 40 komt.


Songtekst

Na na na na na na,
na na na na na na,
na na na na, na na na, na na na na na

If I was a Rich Girl,
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
See, I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end
Cause I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl

Think what that money could bring
I'd buy everything
Clean out Vivienne Westwood
In my Galliano gown
No, wouldn't just have one hood
A Hollywood mansion if I could
Please book me first class to my fancy house in London town

All the riches baby, won't mean anything
All the riches baby, don't bring what your love can bring
All the riches baby, won't mean anything
Don't need no other baby
Your lovin' is better than gold and I know

If I was rich girl,
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
See, I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end
Cause I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
I'd get me four Harajuku girls to
Inspire me and they'd come to my rescue
I'd dress them wicked, I'd give them names
Love, Angel, Music, Baby
Hurry up and come and save me

All the riches baby, won't mean anything
All the riches baby, don't bring what your love can bring
All the riches baby, won't mean anything
Don't need no other baby
Your lovin' is better than gold and I know

Come together all over the world
From the hoods to Japan Harajuku girls
What? It's all love
What? Give it up
What? (shouldn't matter) What?
Come together all over the world
From the hood to Japan Harajuku girls
What? It's all the love
What? Give it up
What? (shouldn't matter)
What happened to my life? Turned up side down
Chicks dat blew ya mind, ding, it's the second round
Original track and ring
You know you can't buy these things
See Stefani and her L.A.M.B I rock the fetish people you know who I am

Yes ma'am, we got the style that's wicked
I hope you can all keep up
We climbed all the way from the bottom to the top
now we ain't gettin' nothing but love

If I was rich girl,
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
See, I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl
No man could test me, impress me, my cash flow would never ever end
Cause I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl

Songinformatie

Wie aandachtig luistert, herkent in dit lied een stukje uit If I Were A Rich Man van Roger Whittaker, die daarmee in 1967 zijn tweede hit scoorde en nummer 4 bereikte.

If I Were A Rich Man komt oorspronkelijk uit de musical "Fiddler on the roof" uit 1964. Hier vind je een fragment uit die musical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBHZFYpQ6nc.
