Another Video and Lyrics For You


"Not A Pretty Girl"

I am not a pretty girl
that is not what I do
I ain't no damsel in distess
and I don't need to be rescued
so put me down punk
maybe you'd prefer a maiden fair
isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

I am not an angry girl
but it seems like I've got everyone fooled
every time I say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear

and imagine you're a girl
just trying to finally come clean
knowing full well they'd prefer you
were dirty and smiling

and I am sorry
I am not a maiden fair
and I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

and generally my generation
wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
and generally I agree with them
trouble is you gotta have youself an alternate plan
and I have earned my disillusionment
I have been working all of my life
and I am a patriot
I have been fighting the good fight
and what if there are no damsels in distress
what if I knew that and I called your bluff?
don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
whether or not you ever show up
I am not a pretty girl
I don't want to be a pretty girl
no I want to be more than a pretty girl

Love that song. Love the video. Love music. Half my life exists in songs. All written, naturally, just for ME! (Ever hear 'Your so vain' by Carly? For me. Yup.)

Thanks for the sweet love on my blog yesterday, I needed it. Pink wet kisses are the best. You rock. Wish we lived closer, we'd be tight, like...ummmm...sistahs from another muther. ;)

Great song.

And while I was listening to it I wondered WHY that man's voice was over the song, and then it hit me, "Turn off the music on the side bar!"

I can be so mush headed, especially on allergy medication!
