Not A Pretty Girl
~Ani Difranco~


I am not a pretty girl
That is not what I do
I ain't no damsel in distress
And I don't need to be rescued
So put me down, punk
Wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair?
Isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere?

I am not an angry girl
But it seems like I've got everyone fooled
Every time I say something they find hard to hear
They chalk it up to my anger
And never to their own fear
Imagine you're a girl
Just trying to finally come clean
Knowing full well they prefer you dirty and smiling
And I am sorry..

But I am not a maiden fair
And I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

And generally my generation
Wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
And generally I agree with them..
..trouble is you gotta have yourself an alternate plan

And I have earned my disillusionment
I have been working all of my life
And I am a patriot
I have been fighting the good fight

And what if there are no damsels in distress
What if I knew that, and I called your bluff?
Don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
Whether or not you ever show up?

I am not a pretty girl
Don't really want to be a pretty girl
I want to be more than a pretty girl
