“If you are ever in doubt as to whether to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Ah, Gwen Stefani - one of my favorites!
BONUS - Just a Girl - No Doubt
|"Just a Girl" is a song written by
Gwen Stefani and
Doubt's third album
Tragic Kingdom. The song was
released in 1995 as the album's
lead single and helped the band break into mainstream music, peaking
at number 23 on the
Billboard Hot 100.
The song itself is written about Gwen Stefani's exasperation over female stereotypes, portraying women as weak and in need of a man to look after them. This is evident from lyrics such as "Don't you think I know / Exactly where I stand? / This world is forcing me / To hold your hand." She explained her inspiration in an interview for BAM Magazine:"I wrote that because my dad got mad at me for going to Tony [Kanal, No Doubt bassist]'s house and driving home late at night. I mean, c'mon, I'm, like, going on 30 here! I wouldn't trade [being female], but I really don't think guys understand what a burden it can be sometimes..."

“In middle school I used to draw letters of the alphabet out of
contorted torsos, bodies, arms, legs. A rigid torso with one arm and one
leg extended at straight angles out would form a 'K,' for example. But
then I realized how silly that was. People aren’t letters, I thought,
they’re whole words. Words like 'Bob,' or 'Dad.' (By the way, Bob is NOT

Recorded by No Doubt, 1995
Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand
'Cause I'm just a girl, little ol' me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights
Oh... I've had it up to here!
The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things
I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear
'Cause I'm just a girl,
I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night
I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes
I'm just a girl,
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh... I've had it up to here!
Oh... am I making myself clear?
I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world...
That's all that you'll let me be!
I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to
Is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there's no comparison
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to here.
