You think I wouldn't have him
Unless I could have him by the balls
You think I just dish it out
You don't think I take it at all

You think I am stronger
You think I walk taller than the rest
You think I'm usually wearing the pants
Just 'cause I rarely wear a dress, well

When you look at me
You see my purpose, you see my pride
You think I just saddle up my anger
And ride, ride, ride

You think I stand so firm
You think I sit so high on my trusty steed
Let me tell you I'm usually face down on the ground
Whenever there's a stampede

I'm no heroine
At least, not last time I checked
I'm too easy to roll over
I'm too easy to wreck

I just write about what I should have done
I just sing what I wish I could say
And hope someone, some woman hears my music
And it helps her through her day

'Cause some guy designed
These shoes I use to walk around
Some big man's business turns a profit
Every time I lay my money down

Some guy designed the room I'm standing in
Another one's built it with his own tools
Who says I like right angles?
These are not my laws, there are not my rules

I'm no heroine
I still answer to the other half of the race
I don't fool myself like I fooled you
I don't have the power we just don't run this place
