Verse I
Hey little girl climbing high up in that tree
Muddy bare feet and scrapes on both your knees
Double dog dare from the boy next door
Anything he can do you can do more
So you’re up there, trying to prove that you’re not scared

If things only stayed as simple as those days
Back when being fast meant you’re gonna win that race
When a hoe was a tool in the garden shed
Passing home base meant you’re team was ahead
At the ball game, when you grow up that’ll all change

Chorus
You can get knocked up, you can get knocked down
Yea you paint your nails and lips and eyes
Suck it in and work it out
You’re uptight if you don’t go far enough
Easy if you go too far
Being a woman, aint for the faint of heart

Verse II
So dress up pretty, and sit with your legs crossed
Cause the boy who copied all your tests is now your boss
He makes more money than you’ll ever bring home
Because you gotta double x chromosome
That’s the way it is, maybe time’s gonna change it

Chorus
But you can get knocked up, you can get knocked down
Yea you paint your nails and lips and eyes
Suck it in and work it out
You’re uptight if you don’t go far enough
Easy if you go too far
Being a woman, aint for the faint of heart

Bridge
We’ll all get together and complain that it ain’t fair
But in the end we’ll outlive em by 15 years
And still have all our hair

Chorus
But you can get knocked up, you can get knocked down
Yea you paint your nails and lips and eyes
Suck it in and work it out
You’re uptight if you don’t go far enough
Easy if you go too far
Being a woman, aint for the faint of heart
