  • We line our eyes
    To cry it off in the bathroom over a guy
    We paint our lips so we can kiss it off
    Blow-dry our hair
    Just right so it looks like we don't even care
    Squeeze in to that dress
    Can't breathe at all

    You know I'm not complaining
    As much as we explain it
    Boys just can't understand us

    You don't know what we go through
    Feeling like we got to fit in a size two
    'Cause otherwise we'll never get a guy
    And be alone till we're ninety-two
    You don't know what it feels like
    To be scared going home at night
    If you want to see the world the way I do
    Walk a mile in my high heeled shoes
    Walk a mile in my high heeled shoes

    Cab call in this street
    Hey baby girl, what's your name? Why aren't you talking to me
    It's no joke, ain't cool
    Who do they think they're talking to
    We feel like, we got to be
    Just like the girls in all the magazine's
    Watch time fly by in the mirror
    Then we lose our youth

    Excuse me if I'm making a fuss
    And no it's not that time of the month
    Boys just can't understand us

    You don't know what we go through
    Feeling like we got to fit in a size two
    'Cause otherwise we'll never get a guy
    And be alone till we're ninety-two
    You don't know what it feels like
    To be scared going home at night
    If you want to see the world the way I do

    Don't you get that
    No means no, yes means yes
    Don't buy me a drink just to get in my bed
    No means no, won't say it again
    I just need a little respect

    You don't know what we go through
    Feeling like we got to fit in a size two
    'Cause otherwise we'll never get a guy
    And be alone till we're ninety-two
    You don't know what it feels like
    To be scared going home at night
    If you want to see the world the way I do
    And if you want to know the hell that we go through
    Walk a mile in my high heeled shoes
    Walk a mile in my high heeled shoes
    Walk a mile in my high heeled shoes Writer/s: Megan McKenna
