Theme Week: Woman Songs! "I Enjoy Being a Girl"

Thanks to all my readers who played along with my April Fool's joke yesterday!

Now it's time to get back to the serious business of our theme this week: Woman Songs. The video today is rather lengthy, but if you stick with it, you'll not only get a new loop tape for your day, you'll also get to see the AMAZING staying-put power of the little white towel. Plus, there are some jazzy special effects.

When I was a girl, this song was popular at every talent show and we sheep in the crowd would herd into the whatever gym or multi-purpose room the show was being held in to see the doe-like creature who sang it in a perky, flirtatious kind of voice. We'd tap our hooves and swoon over the lyrics. This was the ultimate Woman-In-Training song.  I sometimes I stop to shudder when to think of the messages ingrained by this song, but then I strap on my little white towel and dance in front of my three big mirrors in my all-white bedroom and then I'm fine.

So put on your little white towel, and sing along. 
You know you want to.




I am girl, and by me that's only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.

I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place.
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy,
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I'm cute and funny
And my teeth aren't teeth, but pearls,
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl!

I flip when a fellow sends me flowers,
I drool over dresses made of lace,
I talk on the telephone for hours
With a pound and a half of cream upon my face!

I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl... like... me.

When men say I'm sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl,
It goes to my head like brandy,
I enjoy being a girl!

When someone with eyes that smoulder
Says he loves every silken curl
That falls on my ivory shoulder,
I enjoy being a girl!

When I hear the complimentary whistle
That greets my bikini by the sea,
I turn and I glower and I bristle,
But I happy to know the whistle's meant for me!

I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl... like... me.
