they got a name for girls like me
they got a name, but no one wants to say it
they write songs about girls like me
when i'm around, no one wants to play ‘em
they'd sell their soul for a girl like me, and wonder why
they resent a girl like me 'cuz i don't even have to try.

girls like me
don't even have to try.

it takes a nation of angry young men, and that allows some pretension
they scream poems at the top of their lungs, as if they could get my attention
it takes more for a mythical beast like me to die
they think its easy for a girl like me 'cuz i don't even have to try

girls like me, dont even have to try.

    General CommentSo glad there's someone else out there
    working out on this lyrics, here's my two cents:

    ...no one want's to play em
    it's ???? for a girl like me, and wonder why

    ... It takes a nation of angry young men, and adolescent pretension.
    They scream poems at the top of their pens as if they could get my attention...

    THat part in ??? is killing me
    I can not work that out
    anyway

    cheers

    General CommentI wrote a song with pretty much the identical first verse about 30 years ago. It was used as the credits song in Valley Girl, an is currently on the Starbucks CD Ladies of the 80's---the original record was called Good Clean Fun and was released by Slash records.

    They got a word for girls like me
    They got a word but they don't want to use it
    It's all the same for girls like me
    It's all of nothing for girls like me

    They draw the line at girls like me
    They draw the line but they can't stay behind it
    They're doing time for girls like me
    They're gonna line up for girls like me
    etc.

    This is not an original idea---my guess is that you heard it somewhere and "absorbed" it. Good luck with your song writing!
