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....

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. Never say you can't always believe and say "I can" and believe in yourself.

This is a powerful article that does show that girls are very often underestemated. Just because we have been thought of that way in the past we all are created equal anymore. You have made an amazing piece of work stating that.

The more women complain about being underestimated, the more they will be underestimated. The feminist movement is over... move on!

This is soooo great!!! Your rhyming is awesome, and I absolutely love the whole idea. SO RIGHT! We are underestimated! Oh, I really liked the part with Beauty taming the Beast and Ariel leaving the sea. Very well thought-out :D

i love your allusions to the princesses and their triumphs, but i think that there could be some adjustments made. Continue to work on it. Nice so far though.

I love the message and I think you should continue to work with this.  It's good, but not quite great yet. Just do some tweaking and it'll be great.

Either way, I think when it comes to inspirations, similar is too similar.

I looked up the lyrics of Never Underestimate a Girl by Vanessa Hudgen. I wouldn't call them "nearly identicle," though I would say that they are similar.
