Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Getting through the day conveniently
But legacy has subtly locked you in a tower
Cause it's the same old game
Where anytime you speak your mind
You're pushed aside, you don't have the power
Do we have to choose
Between the validation we deserve
And the passion in our words?
Yeah, what do we lose
To settle for the easy role?
Still we know we're not being heard, said

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, I wanna be seen
As more than just a beauty queen, and
Hey, hey, I wanna be more
Than the girl next door

[Verse 2]
Reading magazines would make you think
That Pageantry will always mean more than your opinions in our society
We seem to have divided femininity from our independence
The status quo will never overturn
Until we learn to demonstrate what we believe in
It's time we show the nation
That our self-determination is the only way to win, said

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, I wanna be seen
As more than just a beauty queen, and
Hey, hey, I wanna be more
Than the girl next door

[Bridge]
Stand up ladies and speak your truth
The world's got something to learn from you
No one’s gonna do it unless we do
Let’s give 'em all a little more attitude, and say

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, I wanna be seen
As more than just a beauty queen, and
Hey, hey, I wanna be more
Than the girl next door
Hey, hey, I wanna be seen
As more than just a beauty queen, and
Hey, hey, I wanna be more
Than the girl next door

[Outro]
Stand up ladies and speak your truth
The world's got something to learn from you
No one’s gonna do it unless we do
The world's got something to learn from you
