I've been programmed to behave like an average
American Girl.
I've been programmed to behave like a generational victim.
I've been programmed to behave.
I've been programmed to behave;
And I learned it all from Small Wonder.
Repeat after me,
While you are getting sleepy.
You will obey
The guidelines of your age.
When you are 20, you will act 20
When you are 40, well, Good-Bye.
I've been programmed to behave. I've been programmed
To behave. I've been programmed to behave...
Do you read me?
Are your circuits free?
We designed your mood
To fit your demographic group.
If you are 20, you must be lazy.
If you are 40- money-mine.
I've been programmed to behave.
I've been programmed to behave.
No, I will not listen to you.
You clutter and clatter, so I just cover and clamor,
"I-I-I'm anything."
No, I will not listen to you.
You clutter and clatter, so I just cover and clamor,
"I-I-I'm anything."
Testing 1-2-3.
Clear the line for me.
Don't go out your door;
It's a barometric war.
When it is 20, it's the Antartic.
When it is 40 there's worse to come.
I've been programmed to behave.
I've been programmed to behave.
(Chorus)
I've been programmed to behave like an average
American Girl.
I've been programmed to behave like a generation victim.
I've been programmed to behave.
I've been programmed to behave.
