Why should I be her?

Why can't you love me for me?

Why do i have to fit in a zero?

Why should I be skinny?

What's wrong with my chest?

Why look if i disappoint you?

Why would I shoot botox into my body?

Are you aware that big breasts sag by 32?

Would you quit looking at my bum?

Your eyes can't coax it to grow.

I don't care how big you thought it was

If you don't look, you'll never know.

Why should I paint my face?

Aren't I pretty enough?

Could've sworn that you were scared of clowns...

Who knew being born a girl was so rough...

I feel no need to wear a dress

You can wear one if you'd like

If you don't want to stay then go

That'd make for a more pleasant night

Wise men say that the inside is the sweetest part of a woman

But those men have been dead for years

So if you don't like me the way I am

The door's over here.
