New Year, New Girl Powah Music Video

This is a country song.... for those who might have an aversion...
I love this song, and hope to have the guts to sing it at Karaoke some day.



And because I want you to really get the message, here are the lyrics:


Little girl alone on the playground
Tired of gettin' teased and gettin' pushed around
Wishin' she was invisible
To them

She ran home cryin'
"Why do they hate me?"
And Mama wiped the tears and said
"Baby, you're brave and you're beautiful.
So, hold your head high.
Don't ever let 'em define
The light in your eyes.
Love yourself, give them Hell.
You can take on this world.
You just stand and be strong
And then fight
Like a girl."

At 31 she was wheelin' and dealin'
Kept on hittin' that same glass ceilin'
She was never gonna be one of the boys, no
She coulda gave up on her ambition
And spent the rest of her life just wishin'
Instead she listened to her mama's voice sayin'

"Hold your head high.
Don't ever let 'em define
The light in your eyes.
Love yourself, give them Hell.
You can take on this world.
You just stand and be strong
And then fight
Like a girl."

Oh, with style and grace
Kick ass and take names

Ten years of climbin' that ladder
Oh, but money and power don't matter
When the doctor said "the cancer spread"
She holds on tight to her husband and babies
And says "this is just another test God gave me.
And I know just how to handle this"

I'll hold my head high
I'll never let this define
The light in my eyes
Love myself, give it Hell
I'll take on this world
If I stand and be strong
No, I'll never give up
I will conquer with love
And I'll fight like
Like a girl



XOXO Love you all! Happy WHO year!

That made me think of something my father told my older sister after she had come home crying from school for the first week of grade one because a guy from fourth grade had bullied her.

"Doesn't matter if he's bigger. Next time he tries to hit you, you take a stick and show him."

I bet no one ever tried to bully her after that. My sister can be very impressive.

(She doesn't fight like a girl, though. When I checked a few years ago, she bench-pressed her own body-weight, and she is not fairy-fragile. ^^)
