Just a Girl

I was recently asked how and why I named my website what I did. It’s from a song by No Doubt called “Just A Girl”. The song is funky and cool – – and the singer is just as cute as a button, ain’t she?

Just a Girl by No Doubt
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, little ol’ me
Don’t let me out of your sight


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
I’m just a girl,
Guess I’m some kind of freak
‘Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes
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!
I’m just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some
I’m just a girl, what’s my destiny?
What I’ve succumbed to
Is making me numb
I’m just a girl, my apologies
What I’ve become, is so burdensome
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.
