 * 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 to 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, and are likely direct lyrics from the Jesse Johnson song Old And Ignant that Ice Cream Castles was based on
