En este sencillo, Gwen Stefani critica a una sociedad ‘dominada por hombres’ en base a una experiencia personal

Gwen Stefani escribe este tema desde la posición de una pequeña mujer que vive incapaz e indefensa en una sociedad machista.

“La escribí porque mi padre se molestó por ir a la casa de Tony [compañero de la banda] y regresar de noche a la casa. Quiero decir ¡ya pues!, voy a cumplir 30. No cambiaría el ser mujer, pero a veces los hombres no entienden lo que eso significa”, comentó la artista en una entrevista.


[Verso 1]
Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed, and it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know exactly where I stand?
This world is forcing me to hold your hand

Cause I'm just a girl, oh little old me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights

Oh, I've had it up to here

[Verso 2]
The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can't do the little things I hold so dear
Cause it's all those little things that I fear

Cause I'm just a girl, I'd rather not be
Cause they won't let me drive late at night
I'm just a girl, guess I'm some kind of freak
Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes
I'm just a girl, take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype

Oh, I've had it up to here
Oh, am I making myself clear?

I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world
That's all that you'll let me be

I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb makes me worrisome
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny
What I've succumbed to is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum, there's no comparison

Oh, I've had it up to
Oh, I've had it up to
Oh, I've had it up to here
