i'm not a genius, i'm more like a genie
granting girls wishes from my stonecold bikini yeah
sewing up ideas like delicious kisses
i'll play with your mind but i won't do your dishes boy
say it again

chorus: v.g.i. (my philosophy)
v.g.i. (is i'm a masterpiece)
v.g.i. (i wear a scrunchie)
v.g.i. (i'll say it again)


i say, i say, an intellectual genie
i'm making bullshit disappear like i'm hou-fuckin-dini
turntables around with my smile bright and gleaming
you think ya take your order boy
you must be fucking dreaming

chorus

cuz i'm extra special and i'm burning bright
i'm a ufo blazing through your starry night
you try to shoot me down girl cuz
you just don't understand
that a woman like me can't be bound to one plan

chorus

i don't wanna say i want to,
and i don't wanna say i don't
sometimes the secret is
sometimes the secret is yes
yes yes yes

v.g.i. (i'm a philosopher)
v.g.i. (and i'm a masterpiece)
v.g.i. (i wear a scrunchie)
v.g.i. (i'll say it again)

    General CommentExactly! Especially in the 90's when the "valley girl" attitude was popular, people thought it was acceptable to think of girls associated with that scene as dumb or slutty because of the clothes they wore and the way they spoke.
    Fuck that! I can start a revolution in a pink miniskirt!
    This song is a fabulous comment about being a Valley Girl & a rockin' feminist.

    General Commentoh this is my anthem. "Like" "I know right!" "Totally"-- all parts of my vocabulary, it's not indicative of my intelligence!

    General CommentExactly. I admit, I'm human. I judge people on appearances. But every girl can be a soldier, whether she's a 'lesbian dyke' or a teeny-bopper in a leather mini-skirt.

    General Commenti could never figure out what that last part means "sometimes the secret is, sometimes the secret is yes, yes, yes,"???

    General CommentBest ever.

    I feel like this song is a big fuck you to people who try to put down the feminine. Feminism is about everyone having a choice about who they are that isn't constrained by idiot ideas about gender, not about being allowed to 'ascend' to ascetic, beer-y guydom like it's great.

    You can be super radical and super girly! And you can be radical by being girly like it's an awesome, badass thing to be proud of. You don't have to hate pink to say no to sexist shitballs.

    And Kathleen Hanna is absolutely a masterpiece.

    General Comment'Valley Girl Intelligensia' is what the acronym represents - I think everyone here knows that but just in case anyone doesn't.
