Play Like A Girl

I remember when boys told me,
"You play like a girl."
It's a matter of genetic history,
You play like a girl.

"You can't be in my band.
You don't play like a man.
But there's one thing that you can do.
Teach us to play like you."

Now, all over this big, wide world,
I played like a girl.
From the California lights,
To the Serengeti nights,
I played like a girl.

When I was ten years old I was told,
"You can't play baseball.
You gotta pitch it underhand,
You can't throw it like a man,
You won't be any good at all.

Girls don't know how to have fun,
Girls won't last in the long run.
Girls give birth and stuff but
They're not really tough enough."

Now, all over this big, wide world,
I played like a girl.
From the California lights,
To the Serengeti nights,
I played like a girl.

I don't wanna be Elvis,
Mikey Mantle or Babe.
This isn't a contest.
I just want to make some music.
Happy, good time while I do it.

[Short instrumental break.]

I don't need permission,
To change this tradition.
When they tell me, "You can't play,"
I just turn my back and say,

Now, all over this big, wide world,
I played like a girl.
From the California lights,
To the Serengeti nights,
I played like a girl.
I played like a girl.
I played like a girl.
