Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.

You're sittin' over there
talkin' like you're better than me
like you've got a right, more skill in everything
like it's destined in some prophecy
But let me tell you something
something one day you'll see
one day you'll figure out, what the world is all about
you'll step back to re-evaluate me
re-think your priorities

CHORUS: Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day she will become your world
she understands,she wears the pants
she knows your thoughts with one glance

Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day you'll be on her pay roll
can control you with her finger,
so don't dare too long to linger,
cause' you know she's in control
never underestimate a girl

Go ahead and drop your mouth
you know what I'm talkin' about
guess one day you'll see
Beauty tamed the Beast
Ariel left the sea
we're stronger than you think


Never underestimate a girl
no, never underestimate a girl

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE A GIRL... I know some guys think they are tougher or more skilled but... us girls stick together and we're strong and we're quick thinking... so we'll take your world by surprise....

Whenever I read SOng lyrics, I look for something that signifies that it is good, and your poem has it. WHen I read this in my head, I can easily imagine the music and the beat to which this could be sung. Personally I hear this as a rap song with the chorus sung with a high, but no to high voice. Kind of like Monster by rhianna.

I believe this was either writing out of free time or complete self pitty of a past experience. When writing with emotion, you must use a topic that will set a fire through most readers, while reaching out to females, males are catching the butt-end of the deal with the understanding of this text. (or song) Males, that have any understanding, serve theyre place as dominacy in any animal kingdom based and religiously based research. When you look into the fact that women used to have hardly any rights at all and look at the comparison in facts and laws to "reform" the United States and other countries. With great change, comes great pleasures and problems, most of the movements and acts that took place involving women rights were based off of war crisis and home living while war and mass industry was brand new. We almost expect MORE from the women today and with the returning responses of steryeotipical females, males do indeed classify femals as inferior. With good reason, I too belive men are not but superior, but socially, scientificaly, and religiously above women.

Let's go girl power! It should be a rap song. Not enough of that genre gives women a positive feeling.

Courage is not the absence of fear.

This song is great but tell me, is it a rap? I would like to know the genre. And plus, You don't underestimate anyone, no matter what. It doesn't matter who people say you are, it what you say you are, so don't lie and try to beef yourself up, you'll probably just end up the worst one off. Sorr y for the rant. :D Really LOVE the lyrics! Mwah!

You realize she's right, right? I mean, we guys are not better than girls. I hate any guy  who thinks he is. She is entirely right. It's not her who needs to move on and accept change, it's you.

Eh...... While I agree with the poem's message, being about men and women as equals, I feel that this song is.....missing a soul.....It kinda feels like you didn't write this from the bottom of your heart and rather focused on it sounding good, and that apparently works in the eyes of most, so if you want to keep doing stuff like this go ahead, but I feel that this poem could REALLY use some more "oomph." 3/5
