Seem like everywhere I go
Everybody wanna know
What's it like to be a girl in the music world
Oh, oh, oh, oh

This scene is so sexist, believe me, I get it
We'd probably sell more records
If I flaunted my ass and chest but forget it
I work like one of the boys
And I'm as true as they get
But I'm a lady through and through
Like give me some credit

I knew I'd regret it if I tried to blend in
And pretend be something other than I am
Like, have you noticed I'm a woman
Didn't come to downplay it, or to play it up either
And I'm not trying to pick a fight or be nobody's leader

But it feels like everybody's just a little too interested
In the fact that females can indeed make music
Our interviews, our bios, they all make it a point
"Female-fronted band, from decatur, illinois"

And just once, I'd like to see some other band's résumé
Go out of their way to say their fronted by a male, okay
And while we're on it, let me say
Women don't all sound the same
Who gave us the idea that female fronted
Is a genre anyway?

Seem like everywhere I go
Everybody wanna know
What's it like to be a girl in the music world
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Wanna make it disappear
Tell'em what they wanna hear
If the truth ain't pretty, will you all stay with me?
Will you love me, love me ugly?

And I know it's not fair, and I can't complain
Cause with a girl in our band, people don't look away
But you know what?
It feels like they look just a little too long
Stare me up and down, forget to listen to the song
I take the stage and before I even open my mouth
The audience assumes that they got us all figured out
Oh, your band's got a chick, must be some kind of trick
There's no way she got this far
Without sucking somebody's

And did you really think that's how it works?
I'm not fucking eye candy
I'm here to do my job, I'll be the last man standing
Boys in the crowd asking, for me to flash them
Well here you go, news flash:
You're ignorant and that's that
I bet you'd never say that to your little sister
The media's got you all jacked up little mister
'Cause girls in my position can perpetuate the cycle
Walking a tight rope, don't know which way to go

Hypersexualize or downplay your femininity
Dress like the dudes, or pray to God that you're pretty
Are you kidding me!?
I don't even know who's to blame
Beauty sells, I'll buy it too
I'm trying to sell it back to you!

Seem like everywhere I go
Everybody wanna know
What's it like to be a girl in the music world
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Wanna make it disappear
Tell'em what they wanna hear
If the truth ain't pretty, will you all stay with me?
Will you love me, love me ugly?

So tell me, what's a woman to do?
Nah, scratch that
Tell me, what's a human being to do
With the fact that
What gets ahead, holds us back more
Is a level playing field too much to ask for?
And I know that by saying it, I'm bringing attention
To an issue that might be better left unmentioned
But someone's gotta say it, gotta call out the scene
The scene is obscene, my sanity's split at the seams

So to all of y'all, making this, just about ass and tits
Here to set the record straight, it don't gotta be this way
We can change the game, re-arrange the way to fame
And make a bigger deal about the talent than the face

See I got little girls watching me, want to be like me
I wanna show them, they don't gotta be like me
They can do their own thing, they can rewrite the rules
They can get respect without acting like fools!

So let's not make it harder than it has to be
I'll keep making music, you stop asking me
What's it like to be a girl, in the entertainment world?
Cause now you know

Seem like everywhere I go
Everybody wanna know
What's it like to be a girl in the music world
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Wanna make it disappear
Tell'em what they wanna hear
If the truth ain't pretty, will you all stay with me?
Will you love me, love me ugly?

Seem like everywhere I go
Everybody wanna know
What's it like to be a girl in the music world
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Wanna make it disappear
Tell'em what they wanna hear
If the truth ain't pretty, will you all stay with me?
Will you love me, love me ugly?
