A Girl Can Do What She Wants to Do

I can stay out late
I can party all night
You can’t tell me what to do
That I’m wrong or right

Yes, I’m a girl
But that’s not your concern
Guys do what they want
And now it’s my turn

“Be more modest.”
“Worry what they think.”
Why should I care
If my reputation will sink?

You’re stuck in the past
With your old-school ideals
I won’t stay at home
As my life slowly congeals

I’m allowed to have fun
To do things my way
I can voice my opinion
I don’t care what you say

So look out world
I’m coming out of my shell
And if you don’t like it
You can go straight to Hell!
