Could dress up

To get love

But guess what?

I'm never gonna be that girl

Who's living in a Barbie world

And make up

And play dumb
G G
Pretending that I need a boy
Em Em
Who's gonna treat me like a toy


[PRE-CHORUS]

I know the other girlies wanna wear expensive things

Like diamond rings

But I don't wanna be the puppet that you're playing on a string

This queen don't need a king


[CHORUS]

Oh, I don't know what you've been told

But this gal right here's gonna rule the world

Yeah, that is where I'm gonna be because I wanna be

No, I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

You get off on your 9 to 5

In her life

Had 7 men to do the chores
