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.


Bm          A     G          A    Bm           A           G      A

'Cause I am just a girl, little ol' me.  Don't let me out of your sight.

Bm         A         G          A           Bm           A        G       A

I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite. So, don't let me have any rights.

G(3)      C(10)  [palm mute both chords]

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 am just a girl, I'd rather not be.

'Cause they won't let me drive late at night.

I'm just a girl, guess I'm some kind of freak,

'Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes.


I'm just a girl, take a good look at me; just your typical prototype.

Oh...I've had it up to here!  Oh...I am making myself clear?


I'm just a girl, just a girl in the world; that's all that you'll let me be!

I'm just a girl, living in captivity.  Your rule of thumb makes me worry some.


I'm just a girl, what's my destiny? What I've succumbed to is making me numb.

I'm just a girl, my apologies.  What I've become is so burdensome.

I'm just a girl, lucky me.  Twiddle-dum there's no comparison.


G        C              G        C              G        C            Bm

Oh, I've had it up to!  Oh, I've had it up to!  Oh, I've had it up to here!
