I Enjoy Being A Girl

Album: Flower Drum Song (1958)
  • I'm a 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 pearl,
    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 ev'ry silken curl
    That falls on my iv'ry shoulder,
    I enjoy being a girl!

    When I hear the compliment'ry 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.

    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 pearl
    I just lap it up like honey
    I enjoy being a girl

    I flip when a fella 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. Writer/s: OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II, RICHARD RODGERS
