The Sophisticated World of Barbie and Ken

A song from Barbie in her pre-Malibu days. This Barbie sounds like she went to Bryn Mawr, got a job at Knopf, and then got engaged to Ken, a promising young lawyer at a respectable Manhattan firm. They lived in a charmingly ramshackle apartment in the village for the first year of their marriage. Then they moved to Greenwich and Barbie quit her job to raise their two children. Sadly, Barbie and Ken got divorced in the mid-seventies. Barbie explored EST for a while, and Ken grew a beard and moved to Los Angeles with his former secretary.

"Hurry up, Babs, or we'll miss Mulligan's first set!"
