twenty-first century

 

 

apparently women

 

are incapable of getting out of a car 

 

or rolling a suitcase

 

without a mans help

 

yeah right

 

 

 

[chorus]:

welcome to the twenty-first century

 

where women are powerful and capable

 

of anything

 

just because your stuck in the 1920s 

 

doesn’t mean that i am

 

i don’t need your help to get out of a car

 

welcome to to twenty-first century (the twenty-first century)

 

 

i don’t need a hero

 

i can do that for myself

 

im not helpless,

 

now of days

 

your not going to find a damsel in distress

 

 

[chorus]

 

 

 

yeah 

 

im not not helpless

 

yeah 

 

welcome to the twenty-first century


The author's comments:

I recently went on a trip to Europe and people were acting like my mom, my sisters, and I couldn't do anything for ourselves, which made me super mad. People did try to help us get out of cars and roll our suitcases even though my dad was wearing a boot because he partially tore his achilles people still acted like we couldnt do anything and tried to help us instead of him.
