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


Never underestimate a girl
no, never underestimate a girl

I agree 1000%. I get that girls are great and stuff. I too share the gender, but this almost sounds like you think all guys are this way, or the way you continue to say it over and over again makes it lose its impact. I get the whole "go girl go" mentality, I just think you are taking it over board. Nice talent, I just don't agree with what you are trying to say/ your thinking of the subject.

I think this piece is very reassuring and.. powerful. The sense of control is great, however it seems kind of sexist. it makes it seem like you're saying girls are better than guys. It's original in the fact that you brought equality to a new light; saying that the female species will one day overpower man.

Equality and taking over the world are two very different things.If you were to say something about more equal pay, which is a problelm, I'd back you up. Saying women will take over the world makes the message of women's rights activists muddy and unclear. This is from a fellow female.  You are just taking it overboard and then some. P.S. Female isn't a species. It's a gender. You are giving off the vibe that females aren't humans when you... (more »)

Beauty tamed the Beast

I love that part :)

Ariel left the sea. After giving up her voice to an evil sea witch. You cannot be serious. Her "prince" only needed to know that she was externally beautiful to marry her. The whole idea of princesses is sort of insulting, the way they all fit a mold. You need a new example if Disney princesses are all you've got.

Girls run this world...and it's about time men started to realize that! These are the types of songs that need to be played...not things that are objectifying women, but ones that show how strong we are and how we wil never ever back down!

Let's assume this arguement is valid. If we all get together saying women are better than men, we would have the same problem as we did/do. We need to take the problem away, not switch it around!
