JUST A GIRL BY GRACE DAVIES

JUST A GIRL BY GRACE DAVIES

LYRICS

I been running out of patience
Playing way above my station
I must’ve forgot my place and got confused again
‘Cause I been thinking for myself, see
Standing up on my own two feet
But people really wanna shoot me down, d-down again

Oh, I know what they say
Honey, I should be afraid
‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl
Got a brain and got a voice
I should leave it to the boys
‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl
But I won’t be quiet, I’m gonna breathe fire
Oh, you’re never gonna drown me out
Never gonna push me down
So it’s time for a change
‘Cause you’ll never hear me say that
I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl, yeah

Sick of being told I’m bossy
‘Cause I won’t let nobody boss me
People need to smell that coffee
And put the past to bed
See, ladies need to be united
It ain’t about who comes out highest
They only wanna see us divided
To knock us down again

Oh, I know what they say
Honey, I should be afraid
‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl
Got a brain and got a voice
I should leave it to the boys
‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl
But I won’t be quiet, I’m gonna breathe fire
Oh, you’re never gonna drown me out
Never gonna push me down
So it’s time for a change
‘Cause you’ll never hear me say that
I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl, yeah

No, I don’t need nobody here holding my hand
Sing it loud if you understand
I promise that
Oh, I will be, no, nothing but I filter myself
I will do me, nothing else

Oh, I know what they say
Honey, I should be afraid
‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl
Got a brain and got a voice
I should leave it to the boys
‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl
But I won’t be quiet, I’m gonna breathe fire
Oh, you’re never gonna drown me out
Never gonna push me down
So it’s time for a change
‘Cause you’ll never hear me say that
I’m just a girl, I’m just a girl, yeah

I’m just a girl I’m down on my knees Scrubbing the floor And whatever you please (and Ladies . . . you know what I mean) I’m just a girl Doing dishes and the clean up And all your stinkin’ laundry And thank you, Honey, While I’m working my ass off It just means the world When you say you’re “fond of me” (and yes, I’m speaking sarcastically) I’m just a girl So, you walked on the wet floor When I told you to wait You are gonna have to step The hell up ‘cuz this is turning to hate… Read more »

Thank you for saying that. I thought I would get banned from DWW because of my hostility. I do love my better half – just a way lot more when he’s not working from home.

You don’t ever have to worry about that here, Laurel! Unless you are saying it to another member directly being insulting that will never happen…I can tell you’re a nice person! You will always have full creative control….that is what writing is all about..expressing ourselves..We love you and your writing! Samantha

I am a woman.
I have an amazing bod.
Resilient as they come,
Pain threshold through the roof.
But, please, Mister, please
Don’t expect a perfection
That you don’t expect from self.
Sometimes we ladies goof
But please, Sir, jut shut up
And close your mouth.

Petals fall on
mislaid thoughts
belittled in shame
mistakes has left
a residue of pain
no more cowardice tears
slumber this madness
away in yesterday fears
love burns entramelled
with spirited fire
joyfull strokes of change
melts my rage
soothing gently falls the rain.

I’m more
than just
a girl
I have a
voice you
haven’t even
heard
Don’t push
me around
I”ll use
my power to
scream & shout
I have a choice
to be anyone
I want to be
Because I’m
Not just a girl
