just a girl

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I’m exposed, and it’s no big surprise
Don’t you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

‘Cause I’m just a girl, little ol’ me
Well don’t let me out of your sight
Oh, I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can’t do the little things
I hold so dear
‘Cause it’s all those little things
That I fear

‘Cause I’m just a girl
I’d rather not be
‘Cause they won’t let me drive
Late at night
Oh I’m just a girl
Guess I’m some kind of freak
‘Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes

Oh I’m just a girl
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh, I’ve had it up to here!

Oh, am I making myself clear?

I’m just a girl
I’m just a girl in the world
That’s all that you’ll let me be!
Oh I’m just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Make me worry some
Oh I’m just a girl, what’s my destiny?
What I’ve succumbed to
Is making me numb
Oh I’m just a girl, my apologies
What I’ve become is so burdensome
Oh I’m just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there’s no comparison
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to –
Oh, I’ve had it up to here

Winter sure was cold and miserable
Cooped up, shut down; baby, it was pitiful
Anyhow, it’s over now
We owe it to ourselves to have a little fun
The pace car’s pacin’;
Now the green flag’s wavin’

Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe; I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Uh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced-down, cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll

We’ve got the sun block, a blanket, and the best of Jimmy Buffet
T-bones for the grill; hey, ain’t it great to rough it?
The party’s on from dawn til dawn
Twenty-four-seven till they pull the plug
No more waitin’; come on and kiss me, baby

Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe, I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Uh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced-down, cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll (Uh-oh oh oh)

Slow and steady, I’m so ready
Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Sing to me, babe, I’ll be your dashboard drummer, and
Let’s turn the radio up as loud it can go (Oh-oh oh oh)
Got the ultra-ray wraparound sunglass vision
Got the sails up, iced down, a cool ambition
Just to relax and let the six-pack summer roll (Uh-oh oh oh, uh-oh oh oh)
Uh oh, another six-pack summer comin’
Uh oh

Came home a little early last night
Shed not a tear when I turned out the light
No, I don’t hurt like I used to
Didn’t wait for the knock on my door
Drawer in the room ain’t empty anymore
So many got it tougher than I do
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

Time flies and you just know
Time to think about letting go
‘Times I even forget to be blue
Big feet to shuffle them sands
Leave no trail and slip right through your hands
Done every little thing I know to do
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

And I said “Hail the western bound with it’s black tail flying”
Lay on the rails and leave me to dream
Of where your love was mine

Time flies and you just know
Time to think about letting go
‘Times I even forget to be blue
But I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

No, I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you

Hey I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten
I have not forgotten you
