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....

Amazing! #GirlPower !

Let's go girl power! It should be a rap song. Not enough of that genre gives women a positive feeling.

Courage is not the absence of fear.

This song is great but tell me, is it a rap? I would like to know the genre. And plus, You don't underestimate anyone, no matter what. It doesn't matter who people say you are, it what you say you are, so don't lie and try to beef yourself up, you'll probably just end up the worst one off. Sorr y for the rant. :D Really LOVE the lyrics! Mwah!

You realize she's right, right? I mean, we guys are not better than girls. I hate any guy  who thinks he is. She is entirely right. It's not her who needs to move on and accept change, it's you.

When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers

Eh...... While I agree with the poem's message, being about men and women as equals, I feel that this song is.....missing a soul.....It kinda feels like you didn't write this from the bottom of your heart and rather focused on it sounding good, and that apparently works in the eyes of most, so if you want to keep doing stuff like this go ahead, but I feel that this poem could REALLY use some more "oomph." 3/5

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. Never say you can't always believe and say "I can" and believe in yourself.

This is a powerful article that does show that girls are very often underestemated. Just because we have been thought of that way in the past we all are created equal anymore. You have made an amazing piece of work stating that.

The more women complain about being underestimated, the more they will be underestimated. The feminist movement is over... move on!

This is soooo great!!! Your rhyming is awesome, and I absolutely love the whole idea. SO RIGHT! We are underestimated! Oh, I really liked the part with Beauty taming the Beast and Ariel leaving the sea. Very well thought-out :D

i love your allusions to the princesses and their triumphs, but i think that there could be some adjustments made. Continue to work on it. Nice so far though.

I absolutely love this. From a writer's point of view, I love the Disney relations and the courage to be able to post this. I enjoyed reading this. Keep writing!
