  2. trash trampoline is adam clayton, and the party girl is aislinn o'sullivan (the edge's ex-wife). it is a song which, as many people have said, shows u2's sense of humour.

  3. On the 22nd of March, 1983, in London, during the War Tour, Bono told the following to the audience about 1.44 from the end of Party Girl:

    This is turing into some kind of party. Don't know what to say. Maybe if I get everyone to sing Party Girl, maybe everybody will go away. You'll wanna sing this?

    Hold on a second I'll tell you the words.

    Because I sometimes don't know the words. [?] Do I know the words? Jesus, I never know the words.

    The words are this: "I know a girl, a girl called party. I know she wants more then a party"

    All right? It's easy. Anyone can do it. I made it up on the spot one day, I was in there, in the studio. Edge was playing on the guitar, I said "I know a girl, a girl called party, I know she wants more then a party."

    Are you ready? I gonnna cue you, so wait.

    1, 2, 3, 4 ...
