"Girls Chase Boys" as written by Barry George Dean, Trent Dabbs and Ingrid Ellen Egbert Michaelson....
All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Ooooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Ooooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

I'm a little let down, but I'm not dead
There's a little bit more that has to be said (Oh oooh)
You play me, now I play you too
Lets just call it over

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh its all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh its all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls
Chase girls chase boys chase boys chase girls

Im a little bit home, but I'm not there yet
Its one to forgive but its hard to forget
Don't call me, I won't call you, too
Lets just call it over

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls
Chase girls chase boys chase boys chase girls

I got two hands, one beating heart
And I'll be alright, I'm gonna be alright

Yeah I got two hands, one beating heart
And I'll be alright,
Gonna be alright

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Lets not make it harder than it has to be
Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

Oooooh it's all the same thing
Girls chase boys chase girls

    My InterpretationMy thoughts on the song were at one point very similar to those of litamaivia, however seeing the music video has changed my opinions. The music video for the song includes Ingrid Michaelson's attempt to level the playing field of sexuality by turning the tables on Robert Palmer, who at one point had a very similar music video portraying women in a very sexual way. The overall aesthetic of Ingrid's music video in many ways matches what I believe to be the meaning of the song. I believe that the chorus is supposed to be a mockery of popular opinion on sexuality and sexual orientation.
    "All the broken hearts in the world still beat" refers to the fact that in essence all humans are the same; everyone experiences a broken heart and that's something that we can overlook very easily. In a sense, the first line disregards and invalidates the possibility that people can be sensitive (which of course is not true).
    "Let's not make it harder than it has to be" is a way of saying let's not go out of our way to try to recognize the thoughts and feelings of each individual person, but rather let's all group everyone together; don't make things harder than they have to be, because....
    At the end of the day, "girls chase boys chase girls," meaning that everyone should essentially subscribe to the same sense of sexuality or orientation. It's a bit like saying "boys will be boys" or some other sweeping generalization that overlooks a large community of people who don't feel the same way. It's a very sarcastic and satirical chorus that exposes the insensitive thoughts of people who fail to recognize multiple perspectives.

    Song MeaningI think the meaning of this song is pretty basic. It's just about the fact that girls chase after boys that break their hearts but boys also chase after girls that break their hearts. She's saying that it happens to everybody so it doesn't need to be a big deal for either person.

    My Interpretation"I got two hands, one beating heart
    And I'll be alright, I'm gonna be alright"

    I kind of fell in love with this song as soon as I heard it. It's very easy to relate to if you are dealing with a messy romantic situation. There's that traditional boy/girl, boy has the power, girl is weak flawed dynamic that you know it's never true. Girls chase boys, girls can chase girls, boys can chase boys, and boys can chase girls, it's all the same.
