“Why do you read?”
“Why do you write?”
“Wait you want to go out at night!?”
“Why do you talk?”
“Why do you sing?”
“Nothing you say really means a thing.”
“why don’t you clean?”
“Why don’t you have on makeup?”
“why do you think it’s up to you if we break up?”
“Why are you so fat?”
“Why are you so skinny?”
“I’d hate if she were daughter to me.”

I am just a stupid girl
I like to dance and sing
I am just a stupid girl
Lusting after a ring
I am just a stupid girl
I do not have common sense
I am just a stupid girl
Drowning in innocence.

I am not to show too much skin
Or to completely cover up
I am not to look within
Or to stand myself back up.
I am not to reject men
And their most sexual advances
I am not to look away
From their lusting glances.

“she’s so stupid.”
“She’s so dumb”
“Doesn’t she know it’s half past one?”
“she’s so ditsy”
“She’s so immature”
“Doesn’t she know she loses her allure –
When she tries to speak
Or give opinion
When she stands on her own feet
And doesn’t give in
To what society wants
Her to look and think like?”
“Doesn’t she know
A stupid girl is never right?”

She is just a stupid girl
she does not follow the crowd.
she is just a stupid girl
she sings way too loud.
She is just a stupid girl
she does not agree with society
she is just a stupid girl
she does not have the utmost propriety

She is not to show too much skin
Or to completely cover up
She is not to look within
Or to stand herself back up.
She is not to reject men
And their most sexual advances
She is not to look away
From their lusting glances.

“Why do they think they can say no?”
“Hey girls, why don’t you put on a show?”
“Why do they think they deserve so much pay?”
“Why do they think they need more say?”
“Why do they think their body is their own?”
“Why do they think they belong outside the home?”
“Why do they think society needs to change?”
“Don’t they know it’s perfect if it stays the same?”

they are just stupid girls
they stick together in a pack
they are just stupid girls
defending from attack
they are just stupid girls
going after their careers
they are just stupid girls
they do not respond to the sneers.

They are not to show too much skin
Or to completely cover up
They are not to look within
Or to stand themselves back up.
They are not to reject men
And their most sexual advances
They are not to look away
From their lusting glances.

we are all just stupid girls
no matter how we are
we are not to talk alone
we are not to walk alone
we are not to believe we will go far

we are all just stupid girls
just a walking piece of ass
but how dare we lose our innocence
or follow our dreams
before we even ask.

I am just a stupid girl.
And I am proud to be
Here’s to all the stupid girls
That think a lot like me
