about

This song is a fictional story of a high school relationship between Elena Kagan and her friend Margaret. For better or worse, inspired by the media's interest in Elena's rather non-existent love life. I'll let this song be the extent of my speculation.

lyrics

two girls from the upper west side
hanging out on a saturday night
holding hands and smoking cigarettes
sitting on the metropolitan steps

elena and margaret hit it off from the very start
at an all-girls school where it was cool to be smart
even during the first year, she would hear elena say
i'm gonna be a judge some day

now as they sat outside the museum margaret said
you know we can both get into the same ivy league college
to which elena replied i cannot be with you
because of how high i want to go and what i want to do

just two girls from the upper west side
falling apart on a saturday night
feeling cold and alone smoking cigarettes
sitting on the metropolitan steps
