The TV says I�m not the girl that I should be
It drives me crazy
I�m not impressed; it isn�t what I want to be
So call me lazy

Operator, Operator
Don�t call me; I�ll call you later
Operator, Operator
I�m just fine; I�ll call you later

Why would I want to be anybody else but me
I�m never gonna fake it
Why would I ever be anybody else but me
I know I�m gonna make it
Without a doubt, I know what I�m about
I�m everything I�ll ever want to be
A girl like me
A girl like me

The magazines are messing with reality
It�s entertaining
As long as we don�t ever take it seriously
We�ll keep on laughing

Operator, Operator
Don�t call me; I�ll call you later
Operator, Operator
I�m just fine; I�ll call you later

Why would I want to be anybody else but me
I�m never gonna fake it
Why would I ever be anybody else but me
I know I�m gonna make it
Without a doubt, I know what I�m about
I�m everything I�ll ever want to be
A girl like me

I don�t want to lose control
I don�t want to sell my soul
I don�t want to be no drastic, spastic, superficial plastic clone


Operator, Operator
Don�t call me; I�ll call you later
Operator, Operator
I�m just fine; I�ll call you later

Why would I want to be anybody else but me
I�m never gonna fake it
Why would I ever be anybody else but me
I know I�m gonna make it
Why would I want to be just another wannabe
I�m never gonna be, never ever gonna be
Without a doubt, I know what I�m about
I�m everything I�ll ever want to be
A girl like me (repeat)

    General CommentGreat song meaning:


    the meaning of the part operator operator is also self explanatory:

    After all the influence of getting P.S (plastic surgery) she tells the operator "i'll call you later" as in "ummm..... yeah i ain't calling you back!"

    great song!!

    Song MeaningBasically this song is a positive self-image booster. You are perfectly fine the way you are and that the media shows a negative display to girls. :(
