"32 Flavors" as written by and Ani Difranco....
Squint your eyes and look closer
I'm not between you and your ambition
I am a poster girl with no poster,
I am 32 flavors and then some

And I'm beyond your peripheral vision
so you might want to turn your head
'Cause someday you're going to get hungry
and eat all of the words that you just said

I am what I am,
I am 32 flavors and then some
God help you if you are an ugly
Course too pretty is also your doom
'Cause everyone harbors a secret hatred
for the prettiest girl in the room
God help you if you are a phoenix
and you dare to rise up from ash
A thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
while you are just flying past

I am what I am, I am 32 flavors and then some
I'm taking my chances as they come
I am 32 flavors and then some,
I'm nobody but I am someone, someone...

I'd never try to give my life meaning by demeaning you
And I would like to state for the record...
I did everything that I could do

I am beyond your peripheral vision
so you might want to turn your head
'Cause someday you're going to be starving
and eating all the words that you just said
That you said

I am what I am, I am what I am
I am 32 flavors and then some
I'm taking my chances as they come
I am 32 flavors and then some
I'm looking for truth and there is none
32 flavors and then some
I'll never forget where I came from
32 flavors and then some
I'm nobody but I am someone
32 flavors and then some
I'm taking my chances as they come
32 flavors and then some
Looking for truth and there is none

    General CommentThis is so great! It's about being you no matter what and loving everyone including those who don't like you or say things about you and basically having the best shut-down comebacks and having them all be true. It's an incredibly strong song and Ani-DiFranco gets major props for writing it.

    General Commenti prefer this verion to the ani defranco one, but just because she is quite clear when she sings so i can understand it easier...

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song. It's all about self confidence and being who you are, not what others think you should be.

    General Commenti've been listening to this song for years already and it never gets old..

    powerful stuff>>>
    God help you if you are an ugly girl.
    Of course too pretty is also your doom.
    Cause everyone harbors a secret hatred
    For the prettiest girl in the room.
