Being a Girl

They think it's about looking pretty, and "getting the guy"

Beautiful eyes, beautiful minds

But if you'll give me just a few minutes of your time

I'll show you a real, no joke, day in the life

They don't think it makes sense

Why I work overtime- do I do it for the rent?

Now, let me layout this series of events

While I work for my 81 cents

Less than 100 years ago, women couldn't vote

We devoted our time to learning the word "no"

To tell all the guys who asked us to show

And to think, you call me a.. some names

They wonder why we fantasize our wedding dreams

All over the world, we are forced to marry, at age fifteen

But go ahead, let freedom ring

Just so you know, I don't agree

They treat us like subjects, they use us like objects

Yet they object when we say we're experiencing neglect

By all the men who cash us in

and then we're left to pay off the debt.

I don't understand why they can't see

You know, to some degree

That I don't need perfect hair, or perfect teeth

But don't call me hot, call me beautiful, cuz I'm not a cup of tea
