​Faint of Heart

This song is by Sister C.

Hey little girl climbing high up in that tree
With your muddy bare feet and scrapes on both your knees
Double dog dare from the boy next door
Anything he can do you can do more
So you're up there, trying to prove that you're not scared

If things only stayed as simple as those days
Back when being fast meant you're gonna win that race
When a hoe was a tool in the garden shed
Passing home base meant you're team was ahead
At the ball game, when you grow up that'll all change

But you can get knocked up, you can get knocked down
Yeah you paint your nails and lips and eyes
Suck it in and work it out
You're uptight if you don't go far enough
Easy if you go too far
Being a woman, ain't for the faint of heart

So you dress up pretty, and you sit with your legs crossed
Cause the boy who copied all your tests is now your boss
And he makes more money than you'll ever bring home
Cause you gotta double x chromosome
That's the way it is, maybe time's gonna change it

But you can get knocked up, you can get knocked down
Yeah you paint your nails and lips and eyes
Suck it in and work it out
You're uptight if you don't go far enough
Easy if you go too far
Being a woman, ain't for the faint of heart

Yeah we all get together and complain that it ain't fair
But in the end we'll outlive 'em by 15 years
And still have all our hair

But you can get knocked up, you can get knocked down
Yeah you paint your nails and lips and eyes
Suck it in and work it out
You're uptight if you don't go far enough
Easy if you go too far
Being a woman, ain't for the faint of heart
Cause being a woman, ain't for the faint of heart
