Just a Girl
No Doubt Lyrics


Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed and it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know exactly where I stand?
This world is forcing me to hold your hand

'Cause I'm just a girl, oh, little old me
Well, don't let me out of your sight
Oh, I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights
Oh, I've had it up to here

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can't do the little things I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things that I fear

'Cause I'm just a girl, I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive late at night
Oh, I'm just a girl, guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes
Oh, I'm just a girl, take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype

Oh, I've had it up to here

Oh, am I making myself clear?

I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world
That's all that you'll let me be

Oh, I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb makes me worrisome
Oh, I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to is making me numb

Oh, I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
Oh, I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum, there's no comparison

Oh, I've had it up to
Oh, I've had it up to
Oh, I've had it up to here

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed, and it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know exactly where I stand?
This world is forcing me to hold your hand

[Chorus]
Cause I'm just a girl, oh, little old me
Well, don't let me out of your sight
Oh, I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, I've had it up to here

[Verse 2]
The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can't do the little things I hold so dear
Cause it's all those little things that I fear

[Chorus]
Cause I'm just a girl, I'd rather not be
Cause they won't let me drive late at night
Oh, I'm just a girl, guess I'm some kind of freak
Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes
Oh, I'm just a girl, take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype

[Post-Chorus]
Oh, I've had it up to here
Oh, am I making myself clear?

[Bridge]
I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world
That's all that you'll let me be

[Chorus]
Oh, I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb makes me worrisome
Oh, I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to is making me numb
Oh, I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
Oh, I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum, there's no comparison

[Outro]
Oh, I've had it up to
Oh, I've had it up to
Oh, I've had it up to here

Back in the days when this song came out, and it was played in the local club on Saturday night party, there were 100 punk rock dudes on the dancefloor yelling "I'M JUSTA GIRL!" and dancing the pogo me included. Best times.

This made me feel better about constantly blasting this in my dorm

I was 18 when this came out and I thought it was a fun power pop song, but I don't remember a single punk listening to them.

September 21, 1995, it was a good year this was a great motivating wake-up song for me back when I used to swing a hammer for a living sheeting roofs in Florida sun.
