Not A Pretty Girl Submit Correct Lyrics

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, 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
And imagine you're a girl just trying to finally come clean
Knowing full well they'd prefer you were 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
I don't really want to be a pretty girl
I want to be more than a pretty girl
