I'm a rock, I'm an island, I need no one to love me
At the end of the world, there'll be no man above me
I'll work the livelong day, to do things my way,
But if I had a girl, I would tell her this

Oh, your "No" means "No", but your skirt comes into question
That you ask "Why?" it will be the heard suggestion
You'll work the livelong day, to take home half the pay,
So if I had a girl, I would tell her this

You gotta be bolder, better, harder, faster,
Don't take no shit, have no lord or master,
Don't listen when they say how far you've come

Cause you go to work, then you raise the babies,
Then you work some more, now listen ladies,
If you think we're done, we've only just begun

Well, you go to school, and they tell you that you're equal,
But in the big, wide world, that just means half the people
And one thing you don't see, there ain't no dicks on page 3,
So if you have a girl, please remind her this

You gotta be bolder, better, harder, faster,
Don't take no shit, have no lord, no master,
Don't listen when they say how far you've come

Cause you go to work, and you raise the babies,
Then you work some more, now listen ladies,
If you think we're done, we've only just begun
If you think we're done, we've only just begun
If you think we're done, we've only just begun

We've only got started,
Yeah, we've only got started,
Yeah, we've only got started

So far to go, now,
So far to go, now

If I wear my skirt short, don't mean I don't have a brain
And if I cover myself from head to toe, don't mean that I'm in chains
I don't have to hate men to know that life ain't fair,
And I see how far we've got to go, but I know, I know, I know that we'll get there
