THE STRONG GIRL ANTHEM: FERGIE – BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY
Here’s for all Big Girls.
The one’s who cry buckets, and the ones who hold it in
The ones who feel feels that just have to be expressed
And the ones who have mastered the art of coding their feels
The handkerchief carriers and bathroom criers.
The dry eyed back patters, and the stoic consolers
This is for big girls. This is for lepa girls
This is for all strong girls. And those trying to be.
This is Fergie, with Big Girls Don’t Cry.
Here’s the song and lyrics below, with the parts that tor-tor-ri me the most in red.
Big Girls Don’t Cry Lyrics
Da da da da
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
You’re probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter of my own protection, baby
To be with myself and center clarity, peace, serenity
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It’s personal, myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do
And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
It’s time to be a big girl now
And big girls don’t cry
The path that I’m walking I must go alone
I must take the baby steps ’til I’m full grown, full grown
Fairytales don’t always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay
Like the little school mate in the school yard
We’ll play jacks and uno cards
I’ll be your best friend and you’ll be my Valentine
Yes, you can hold my hand if you want to
‘Cause I want to hold yours too
We’ll be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds
But it’s time for me to go home
It’s getting late and dark outside
I need to be with myself and center clarity, peace, serenity
La da da da da da
