Every day voices circle all around me
Telling me what I should or shouldn’t be
Why don’t you play with girls’ toys?
Why do you spend so much time with boys?
You should go shopping more with fellow females
And have fun trying to find all those good sales
My weak insignificant voice tries to reason
That I don’t like shopping for every season
I can’t help loving this video game and that “boy thing”
But hey, look! At least I really like to sing!
They tell me it’s not enough, that I have to conform
That it’s unacceptable to deviate from the social norm
When they say this fact that I can’t argue about
The sad truth crushes me, makes me cry my eyes out
Although they say being a girl should fill me with joy
In the end they just make me wish I’d been born a boy.
