unless I could have him by the balls?you think I just dish it outyou don't think I take it at all?you think I am strongeryou think I walk taller than the rest?you think I’m usually wearing the pantsjust 'cause I rarely wear a dress?
when you look at meyou see my purpose,see my prideyou think I just saddle up my angerand ride and ride and ride?you think I stand so firmyou think I sit so high on my trusty steed?let me tell youI’m usually face down on the groundwhen there's a stampede
I’m no heroineat least, not last time I checkedI’m too easy to roll overI’m too easy to wreckI just write aboutwhat I should have doneI just singwhat I wish I could sayand hope somewheresome woman hears my musicand it helps her through her day
'cause some guy designedthese shoes I use to walk aroundsome big man's business turns a profitevery time I lay my money downsome guy designed the room I’m standing inanother built it with his own toolswho says I like right angles?these are not my lawsthese are not my rules
I’m no heroineI still answer to the other half of the raceI don't fool myselflike I fool youI don't have the powerwe just don't run this place
