 * The lines ‘’We are young. We're not old, and we are funky... quoted in Baby I'm A Star are often referred to as the lyrics from Ice Cream Castles. However, although similar the lyrics sung, they are not actually from that song. They do appear in a late 1983 rehearsal jam usually referred to as “White Girls” rehearsal.
