That's interesting, Ron says some Sparks songs over the years have been written from the female POV, but he doesn't say which ones. "Funny Face" is a possibility. Of course "(She Got Me) Pregnant" is really female POV, with the joke being that the stated point of view is male. Oddly, the latter song could've been poignant, but the switched POV makes it very funny.

You can be pregnant with thought; I always thought that's what the song was referring to rather than the act of having a baby...
