She's that white girl, you know, the one with the green eyes.
Everytime someone sees her there's a look of surprise
She's a white girl living in the city
She knows how to get down and gritty
People greet her with a snicker
in her eyes anxiety flickers
and frequent questions come to surface:
"You're white shouldn't you be rich?"
"Why would you live in a city like this?"
Truthfully the city is where she belongs
her and those suburban kids? They don't get along
She doesn't meet the typical "White standards"
in fact sometimes she feels embarassed
Her daddy's not a doctor and her moms not a lawyer
Dadd'y lucky he even found an employer
Sure I'm the white girl from the city
and sure I know how to get down and gritty
I don't live a life of luxury
or know what its like to be care free
I may not be the person you expect
but I am a person that deseves respect
This is me
the little white girl from the city
