Play Like A Girl Lyrics

Play Like A Girl - Janis Ian

Written by:Janis Ian

I remember when boys told me

 

You play like a girl

 

It's a matter of genetic history

 

You play like a girl

 

You can't be in our band

You don't play like a man

But there's one thing you can do

Teach us to play like you

 

Now all over this big wide world

I play like a girl

From the California lights to the Serengeti nights

I play like a girl

 

When I was ten years old I was told

You can't play baseball

 

You've got to pitch underhand

You can't throw it like a man

It won't be any fun at all

 

Girls don't know how to have fun

Girls don't last in the long run

Girls give birth and stuff but

They're not really tough enough

 

Now all over this big wide world

I play like a girl

 

From the California lights to the Serengeti nights

I play like a girl

 

Don't want to be Elvis

Mickey mantle or babe

 

This isn't a contest

 

I just want to make some music

Have a good time while I do it

 

I don't need permission

To change this tradition

When they tell me you can't play

 

I just turn my back and say

 

Now all over this big wide world

I play like a girl

 

From the California lights to the Serengeti nights

I play like a girl

I play like a girl

 

 

I play like a girl
