Intro: I wanna see Fat grrrls! Just like me! My double Ds Don’t fit in your tiny Ts I’ve got hips and I’ve got thighs To fit in skinny jeans I’d have to die, because Pre-Chorus 1: I won’t unload my junk I’ll take up space all I want I’m just your average girl Living in your below average world Chorus: I wanna see Fat grrrls just like me I wanna see Fat grrrls just like me I don’t hate other girls Judge not the lines or the curves We’re all sisters in the fight Fashion is a girl’s right, because Pre-Chorus 2: Something’s wrong with all of you Plus size! That’s my attitude! I’m just your average girl Living in your below average world Chorus Verse 1 Pre-Chorus 3: I’ve got the solution! We need a revolution! When the mannequins start to diet We need a fat grrrl riot! Extended Chorus: I wanna see Fat grrrls on TV I wanna see Fat grrrls in movies I wanna see Fat grrrls just like me I wanna see Fat grrrls on magazines I wanna see Fat grrrls just like me Outro: We want variety! Don’t tokenize or patronize me! I am happy! I am healthy! So don’t you go judging me!

She turns the dial, looking for that sound She knows the voice well, only she can tell, if you Spin the words right, make her would go ‘round She’s too serious for this kind of play Hiding in her mind, so lost she can’t find Herself believing she’d be better that way Pre-Chorus: Somewhere there’s a secret verse And a perfect rhyme Make her heart beat in time Chorus: She turns the radio on As she sings along Her guard falls down That’s when she gets to be More than we see She hears that voice, it’s calling her home Could she more than, an imaginary fan Please keep singing, so she’s not so alone Pre-Chorus 2: And maybe it’s enough And maybe she’ll be fine Will her heart will beat in time? Chorus Chorus Pre-Chorus 2 Pre-Chorus 3: And if you listen close You’ll hear the only line To make her heart beat in time

I got a rejection letter in today It said you’re not qualified “You’re just not enough” that’s what they say I guess things just don’t go my way I got a call the other day They said you’re over-qualified “We’d have to give you benefits” that’s what they say No matter what I do, it’s all work and no pay I got Chorus: Pink slips and pink collar jobs Keep on fighting against all odds I'm over-educated and underpaid Trying to make a decent wage I got an interview yesterday I knew I was in, until I heard “You know you’ve got a great ass” They didn’t care I graduated top of my class I got a job, yesterday They said I had a great future there But then the economy crashed And they tossed my out with last night’s trash All I got is Chorus Chorus 2: Endless searching, unemployment lines Fill out this form, pay a fine My oh my, it puts me in a rage Trying to make a decent wage Chorus Chorus 2 Chorus Chorus 2

Come here, they said come right here We'll give you everything that you need, if you Sign here, sign right here We promise you'll be free, in the Pre-Chorus: Camera lights Overexposure Headline delight Chorus: I, I, I don't want to be a Rock, rock, rock & roll star No, no, no I, I, I don't want to be a Rock, rock, rock & roll star No, no, no I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't wanna be I don't, I don't, I don't I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't wanna be I don't, I don't, I don't Happy now, are you happy now? We gave you everything that you need But you, you don't want it now Didn't say this would be free, in the Pre-Chorus Chorus Pre-Chorus Chorus Chorus

Oh how you loved me With a passion that would win It’s true you told me forever Yours, I would have happily been As time passed, it got more difficult I rarely got to hear your voice And the fears I had, I missed you so You made your final choice Chorus: You won’t see me again You won’t see me at all The pain that you caused me Has lost me to the fall I came to, from the song in my head Afriad you had something to tell me You said, “I don’t love you like that anymore.” “I've got a new girl, and I’m so sorry.” Betrayed and dizzy, my heart is broken I scream anger at your name As my soul lies here to bloody tears And my eyes, they cry to shame Chorus Maybe we’ll pass on the street You’ll act cool as you shuffle your feet And I'll laugh and try to pretend You didn't exist in the end Chorus Chorus
