"Stupid Girl" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
I'm not talking about the kind of clothes she wears
Look at that stupid girl
I'm not talking about the way she combs her hair
Look at that stupid girl

The way she powders her nose
Her vanity shows and it shows
She's the worst thing in this world
Well, look at that stupid girl

I'm not talking about the way she digs for gold
Look at that stupid girl
Well, I'm talking about the way she grabs and holds
Look at that stupid girl

The way she talks about someone else
That she don't even know herself
She's the sickest thing in this world
Well, look at that stupid girl

Well, I'm sick and tired
And I really have my doubts
I've tried and tried
But it never really works out

Like a lady in waiting to a virgin queen
Look at that stupid girl
She bitches 'bout things that she's never seen
Look at that stupid girl

It doesn't matter if she dyes her hair
Or the color of the shoes she wears
She's the worst thing in this world
Well, look at that stupid girl

Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up
Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up, shut-up
Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up

Like a lady in waiting to a virgin queen
Look at that stupid girl
She bitches 'bout things that she's never seen
Look at that stupid girl

She purrs like a pussycat
Then she turns 'round and hisses back
She's the sickest thing in this world
Look at that stupid girl

    General CommentHow's it misogynist? It's not saying "all girls are stupid", it's about a particular girl who's a bit of a pain. Spiteful, yes. Sexist, I don't think so.

    General CommentThis song reminds me about all those preppy girls at my school who hang out in the "in" crowd. They still don't get any fun, but act like they are the most popular things in the world.

    General CommentYou know, I love the Stones, but I really hate this song. What a poisonous, misogynist piece of crap. There's a bar that has this song on the jukebox, and when it comes on, I feel embarrassed to be there and to be a man.

    General CommentThe way she professes to know things that she doesn't and the way that she is two-faced, shows her stupidity. Stupidity is defined by her lack of character. As he says, he doesn't judge her on superficial things that don't matter. I do agree that the song targets a certain type of woman -- it's not a misogynistic song. In a broader sense however -- and probably most importantly -- the "girl" is a metaphor for established society's closed-mindedness - devoid of trueness.

    General Commentquite similar to Under my Thumb in the underlying tone and message...this song really went against the grain of the 60's music movement...and I think it just fits the stones' style

    General CommentIt's absolutely misogynist. The song specifically states, doesn't even imply, but STATES that this girl is the WORST thing in the world. That ignores the fact that virtually all evil on earth is perpetrated by men for men's benefit, and ignores the fact that men overall do far worse things like rape, murder, and wage war.

    My OpinionI don't see anything wrong with the lyrics. The lyrics are an opinion of the person or persons that wrote it.

    General CommentI get that the narrator is calling the girl stupid partly because she gossips, complains, and gold-digs, but he also seems to be implying that her "feminine" interests, like fashion and makeup, are stupid. So it's not entirely unreasonable to call these lyrics sexist, although if they are, they were written in the sixties and it was a different time. Most male rock stars in the sixties and seventies were pretty misogynistic tbh, although that's not what the older generation wants to hear.
