  • I wanted lace, I wanted pearls
    To be a princess like the other girls
    But life came hard to my front door
    And I grew up tryin' to even up the score

    Tough; I ain't never been nothin' but tough
    All my edges have always been rough
    But Jesus loves me anyway; oh backbone,
    There ain't nothin' wrong with a woman that got a little backbone
    You just wait 'till you taste her kind of love

    You want a shy little thing
    A pretty little high-heeled thing
    Gonna cry if I don't polish up
    Tough

    The way I see it, the hand of Fate
    Did me a favor, with the cards he dealt my way
    Found out real fast life is a game
    You're out real quick if you don't know how to play

    Tough; I ain't never been nothin' but tough
    All my edges have always been rough
    But Jesus loves me anyway; oh backbone,
    There ain't nothin' wrong with a woman that got a little backbone
    You just wait -till you taste her kind of love

    You want a shy little thing
    A pretty little high-heeled thing
    Gonna cry if I don't polish up

    I'll be serious, you ain't fooled me much
    You're still hangin' 'round so you can try your luck

    With tough; I ain't never been nothin' but tough
    All my edges have always been rough

    You want a shy little thing
    A pretty little high-heeled thing
    Gonna cry if I don't polish up

    You know what I gotta say about that is tough Writer/s: LESLIE SATCHER
