Lyrics

I'm Your Girl

Written By: Mary Jo Daly

(verse)
I’m not a get-around girl
So if you’re just lookin’ for action, cowboy,
Giddy-up, now, go away

I’m not a Barbie doll,
Who’s blond and tall and all synthetic, no no
Playin’ games is not my way

(chorus)
But if you’re lookin’ for a girl that’s real
If you’re really not afraid to feel,
I’m your girl
If you need a partner for romance,
Dance on over here, let’s take a chance,
I’m your girl, I’m your girl, yes, I’m your real girl

(verse)
I’m not a blend-in babe
To dangle from your arm and nod my head, with
nothin’ of my own to say

Can’t be a trophy wife,
No I could never be that prim and perfect
What about my bad hair days?

(to chorus)

(bridge)
If you’re havin’ a mid-life crisis, collectin’ cars and bimbos, too
I refuse to be part of your collection of things that amuse you …

(final chorus)
But if you’re lookin’ for a girl that’s real
If you’re really not afraid to feel,
I’m your girl
If you’re ready, now, to try romance,
Dance on over here, let’s take a chance,
I’m your girl, I’m really your girl, yes, I’m your real girl
Yes, I’m your girl, I’m really your girl, I’m your real girl

(let’s keep it real, cowboy …)
I’m not a get-around girl!

If I Hold My Breath, I'll Just Turn Blue

Written By: Mary Jo Daly

(verse)
If I was Cinderella, I’d still have just the one shoe
Cuz Prince Not-So-Charming, he flaked out, and he never came to my rescue

If I was Sleeping Beauty, I’d snore for a million years
Cuz my handsome prince met a pretty girl and he never showed up here

(chorus)
If I hold my breath, till Mr. Right comes along
I’ll just turn blue, blue, blue
Singin’ this same old song
If I hold my breath, till the fairy tale comes true
I’ll just turn blue, blue, blue
Singin’ them dirty-rotten-scoundrel-Prince-Charming-never-showed-up-to-rescue-me blues

(verse)
If I was chasin’ rainbows, lookin’ for a pot of gold
I’d be disappointed, wastin’ my time, while the clock ticks and I get old

If I was seeking beauty, do you think I could succeed?
Beauty is fleeting, it comes and goes, cuz it’s really not what we need

(chorus)
If I hold my breath, till all my dreams come along
I’ll just turn blue, blue, blue
Singin’ this same old song
If I hold my breath, till the fairy tale comes true
I’ll just turn blue, blue, blue
Singin’ them nothin’-ever-works-out feel-sorry-for-me life’s-never-fair-to-me blues

(bridge)
So I need to breathe in, breathe out
Savor every moment, that’s what life is about
Breathe in, breathe out

(chorus)
Cuz if I hold my breath, till the fairy tale comes true
I’ll just turn blue, blue, blue
Singin’ them whinin’-and-complainin’ nothin’s-ever-good-enough wasting-my-life-away-blues

(tag)
Don’t wanna sing them blues
Don’t wanna sing them holdin’-my-breath-till-I-turn blue-blue-blue blues
