intro:   F#m  A  D  E  2x

     I am not a pretty girl
     A             D                          E
                       that is not what I do
                    F#m                  A
     I ain't no damsel in distess
                        D                     E
     and I don't need to be rescued
                       F#m           A
     so put me down punk
                            D                    E
     wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair
B                                                 D
     isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

     I am not an angry girl

     but it seems like I've got everyone fooled

     every time I say something they find hard to hear

     they chalk it up to my anger

     and never to their own fear

     and imagine you're a girl

     just trying to finally come clean

     knowing full well they'd prefer you

     were dirty and smiling

     and I am sorry

     I am not a maiden fair

     and I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

     F#m   A   D   E  (2x)

     and generally my generation
     wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
     and generally I agree with them
     trouble is you gotta have youself an alternate plan
     and I have earned my disillusionment
     I have been working all of my life
     and I am a patriot
     I have been fighting the good fight
     and what if there are no damsels in distress
     what if I knew that and I called your bluff?
     don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
     whether or not you ever show up

     I am not a pretty girl
     I don't want to be a pretty girl
     no I want to be more than a pretty girl
