Just A Girl

Janis Ian

She's not useless -- she's just a girl
She's not stupid -- she's just
A whirl of emotion, stranger to caution
Now you can straighten her out
Sure she'll pout
But that's what love's about

She gets angry -- say it's cute when she's upset
Keep her hungry
Never overfeed a pet or convenience
Try to be lenient
Don't hold the leash too tight
Train her right
You've got her brain to fight

Did you really feel LLife was that unreal -- oh no
Did you just assume NNo one else needs room -- how slow
Now is it any wonder SShe's looking for some thunder?

She's not angry
It's just a bad time of the moon
She's not pretty -- she's just well made up
With glue and a paint box
Making your heart knock
But they're all alike in the dark
Guard your heart
And keep it well apart

They always told you It was better to be born a man
You never understood It's down to more than size
Shrug your shoulders, Say you're never gonna understand
I don't know, But you should tryb

She ain't leaving
She can't even dial a telephone
You're not grieving
You just hate to eat alone
She's expected -- she'll be rejected
Then she'll come crawling home

Crawling home -- she must come crawling home
Throw the dog a bone -- throw the dog a bone
Throw the dog a bone -- throw the dog a bone
