Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.


You're sittin' over there
talkin' like you're better than me
like you've got a right, more skill in everything
like it's destined in some prophecy
But let me tell you something
something one day you'll see
one day you'll figure out, what the world is all about
you'll step back to re-evaluate me
re-think your priorities

CHORUS: Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day she will become your world
she understands,she wears the pants
she knows your thoughts with one glance

Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day you'll be on her pay roll
can control you with her finger,
so don't dare too long to linger,
cause' you know she's in control
never underestimate a girl

Go ahead and drop your mouth
you know what I'm talkin' about
guess one day you'll see
Beauty tamed the Beast
Ariel left the sea
we're stronger than you think

CHORUS

Never underestimate a girl
no, never underestimate a girl

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE A GIRL... I know some guys think they are tougher or more skilled but... us girls stick together and we're strong and we're quick thinking... so we'll take your world by surprise....

I am a girl, and I love this because I also agree that someone should never underestimate a girl. It shows how other people identify girls as weak. Using the Disney Princesses, "Beauty tamed the Beast Ariel left the sea we're stronger than you think" shows that girl should do what they want to do without anyone telling them they cannot.

This song is great because it illustrates how others identify girls as weak, but that’s only the opposite of what we are. “…guess one day you'll see, Beauty tamed the Beast, Ariel left the sea, we're stronger than you think…” reveals that others will see how capable girls are.

Your work is amazing! No one should ever underestimate a girl. I loved the comparison you made with the Disney Princesses, “Beauty tamed the Beast, Ariel left the sea, we're stronger than you think” because it’s saying that girls can do whatever they want to do!

No, you should never underestimate a girl. We can do anything just as well or better than a boy can. I love how you talk about Disney and when you say "never underestimate a girl cuz one day she'll be on your payroll." This is amazing.

This is so amazing! I totally agree with you, and I like your Disney references. I really wish I could hear you (or anybody, really) sing it though! I can think up my own sound, but it doesn't seem quite right.

What a great poem! I love your reference to Disney princesses, because they're often thought of as weak, always depending on their prince, but your poem shows us their strength. And the strength that all women posess.
