Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.

You're sittin' over there
talkin' like you're better than me
like you've got a right, more skill in everything
like it's destined in some prophecy
But let me tell you something
something one day you'll see
one day you'll figure out, what the world is all about
you'll step back to re-evaluate me
re-think your priorities

CHORUS: Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day she will become your world
she understands,she wears the pants
she knows your thoughts with one glance

Never underestimate a girl
cause' one day you'll be on her pay roll
can control you with her finger,
so don't dare too long to linger,
cause' you know she's in control
never underestimate a girl

Go ahead and drop your mouth
you know what I'm talkin' about
guess one day you'll see
Beauty tamed the Beast
Ariel left the sea
we're stronger than you think


Never underestimate a girl
no, never underestimate a girl

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE A GIRL... I know some guys think they are tougher or more skilled but... us girls stick together and we're strong and we're quick thinking... so we'll take your world by surprise....

You made a very beautiful song that could spread to girls world wide almost telling them that they can rule and tell the boys world wide that they won't always be in control.....sorry if i missed the whole point of the song....would you mind if i sang it for my choir as long as i say who wrote it?

As a girl who gets constantly underestimated, I love these lyrics! Being underestimated can be used to your advantage, but mostly it's just annoying. Somehow, I am weaker, slower, dumber, and less capable because I am a woman? Doesn't make sense. These lyrics express my frustrations really well! Unfortunately, not everyone will understand just how capable women are.

I am a girl, and I love this because I also agree that someone should never underestimate a girl. It shows how other people identify girls as weak. Using the Disney Princesses, "Beauty tamed the Beast Ariel left the sea we're stronger than you think" shows that girl should do what they want to do without anyone telling them they cannot.

This song is great because it illustrates how others identify girls as weak, but that’s only the opposite of what we are. “…guess one day you'll see, Beauty tamed the Beast, Ariel left the sea, we're stronger than you think…” reveals that others will see how capable girls are.
