verse 1 
  When I was young, I wanted to be Jon 
  It wasn’t hard, short hair, no curves to speak of 
  I could do things I couldn’t do as Jen 
  Ride bikes with boys, kiss girls and make some noise 
verse 2 
  I grew to be a young lady 
  Catholic Girls School, will try to do that to you 
  Never fit in, to love was to live in sin 
  So I stood out, I was born to let it out 
This world, it wasn’t made for women 
You know even before you bleeding 
I’m sorry, can’t you hear me speaking? 
How is it now, now that I’m screaming? 
verse 3 
  I know, I am a strong woman 
  Never questioned my strength, it was passed on 
  Proud my mother wanted respect more than love 
  And her mother taught her that she could want for more 
This world, it wasn’t made for women 
You know even before you bleeding 
I’m sorry, can’t you hear me speaking? 
How is it now, now that I’m screaming?  
verse 4
  I know, I am a strong woman 
  Never questioned my strength, it was passed on 
  Proud my mother wanted respect more than love 
           (mute) 
  Kia kaha, be proud, stay strong, go on
