Remember to be kind
You musn't hit boys
You can't wear pants
Only boys wear pants
Young lady, cross your legs
Always smile and be sweet
Girls are made of sugar
Spice and everything nice
 
When you're a girl 
You have to be everything
You have to be nice
You must be the best at what you do
You have to be super sweet
You have to be sexy
You have to be THIS
You have to be THAT
 
I can't be all of those things at once
I'm a human being
I am ME
ME is who I am
I will never be more or less than ME
I WILL be the best
But I'll be the best ME I've ever seen
 
Remember to be kind
You musn't hit girls
You can't wear pink
Only girls wear pink
Young man, don't you cry
Always be a gentleman
Treat girls with generosity
Be sweet, but be STRONG
Be a MAN
 
When you're a boy
You have to be everything
You have to be nice
You aren't allowed to cry
You must be the alpha
You have to be strong
You have to be masculine
You have to be THIS
You have to be THAT
 
I can't be all of those things at once
I'm a human being
I am ME
ME is who I am
I will never be more or less than ME
I WILL be the best
But I'll be the best ME I've ever seen
 
I am a girl
I am sweet
Sexy and nice
But in my own way
I am loyal
Honest and trustworthy
The beauty of me lies in
My smile, which can brighten any day
My eyes, the windows to my soul
My laugh, the sign of genuine happiness
My art, my grades, my achievements 
The physical evidence of where I've been
The proof of my intelligence
 
I am beautiful
I am strong
I hate pink
I know it's okay to cry
I can be the alpha any day
I am the best
The best at being ME
I am human
