Never Understimate a Girl

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

Go ahead and drop your mouth

Probably the most unique "poem" I found so far. Great work!

The song is very interesting! The assonance  and consonance was used very preportionatly. I enjoyed how the verses really worked together and stayed on the same topic.

I really like the assonance and consonance in the poem. I also love how the stanzas and verses flow nicely.

Go girls! A great shout for girl power :).

I'm curious - what tune would this be sung in?

I liked how you used rhythm throughout the whole poem. I also liked you used metaphor to compare girls to the rest of the world. Great job(:

I really like the personification you had. I also liked the rhythm you had.

In your poem I loved the rhyme scheme that you used, but your rhythm was a little hard to find. I can tell it'll make a very good song though. Nice job.

I love this! Some of the rhythm could probably flow better but for the most part excellent!

Oh, and its more or less empowering (which society needs in a world where women/girls are portrayed as objects).

I like to think of poetry as something to express urself. I am guess in some guy was bossing around and hence, this poem.

I think it's alright, not the BEST but very good.
