Carry me up them stairs
With my white socks on and my pretty song,
You like my blue nail polish
What is all this?

You said, "Little miss, upstairs
Don't be scared."

Daddy dearest, you know how I like to take trips
Pops, first stop at the K-Mart
Buy me my peach lip-gloss
Cigarettes and lollipops
Mad Magazine and white socks
All in your car for our trip across the USA

We gonna party like it's 1949
We in the Pontiac from July to July
It's a flower motel nation
Day and night on our last vacation
We gonna see it all before we say goodbye

Daddy likes Blackpool,
Pleasure beach and road-stops,
Baby likes the Swiss Alps souvenir gift-shops
Late night, midnight, radio show talks
Daddy, baby, big jail break

Ponytail and lollipops
Dinerettes and soda-pops
New blue bathing suit
Ruched tops and Cadillacs
Blue LA Carte Docks
Hop-scotch, shit talk
Alabama hard knocks
Motel brass locks.

We gonna party like it's 1949
We in the Pontiac from July to July
It's a motel flower nation
Day and night on our last vacation
We gonna see it all before he says goodbye

I hear: You like my blue nail polish,
What is all this,

 you said "little miss, upstairs. Don't be scared"

and i still keep hearing "dain (?) and i on our last vacation"

 

also in the last chorus it changes to "motel flower nation" and "before he says goodbye"

Thanks, I agree.

 

Except "day and night", keeping that. Seeing the sunrise, etc.

This is one of my favourite songs by her and I love the lyrics because it reminds me of summers in Finland, where I come from. I have no idea why.

How exactly does one 'Party like it's 1949' ? 

What is the significance of 1949 is that when Lolita was set? I couldn't find anything on wikipedia

I'm actually reading Lolita right now, and 1949 was part of the time H.H. and Lolita travel across the USA  to pretty much just visit a bunch of places. Partying like it's 1949 I guess refers to living life on the run. (Which we know Lana is obsessed with)
