Where's my white knight
My prince to save the day?
I've always paved my own way
I'm all alone
Bringing home the bread
Raising the kid, fixing the bed

[Chorus:]
I wanna be a star, Like Marilyn Monroe
A Cinderella fantasy, a naive Clara Bow
A princess and the pea, I try to play the part
Surrounded by society, hypnotizing me
It's hard to be soft

I'm all alone
Keeping the home alive
Making the meals
She's 9 to 5
I'm the only one
At the mommy and me
Looking for some company

[Chorus]

Out there on my own
Successful in the world
It works to be so strong
But when I come home
My pendulum's outta control
I'm passive or I let my fire blow
In a man's world it's hard to be soft

I don't want to be a star
Like Marilyn Monroe
A Cinderella fantasy
A naive Clara Bow
A princess and the pea
I try to play the part
Surrounded by society
Hypnotizing me to be
Home-baked apple pie
A centerfold in heels
A Betty Crocker Pamela
Complacent to believe
In my Mr. Right
A pipe and slippers guy
A ready, steady, rock-hard Eddy
Oops not always, guess it's only
Hard to be soft

Hard To Be Soft Lyrics
