what makes you think you can talk to me at this party?
how is it so unclear why we're all here?
girls are kissing other girls and boys are holding hands
and every intro starts with a PGP
i thought i would be free to dance without your advances

how loud do i have to plead and beg you not to hit on me?
it's hard to be a femme girl in a straight man's world

well now you're here, so have a seat
you're gonna hear me out
why must my clothing manifest that i'm not interested?
i tried cutting off my hair and i tried leaving my lips bare
but it just wasn't for me
when will you learn you have no bearing on what i'm wearing?

this lipstick is just for me and i wore this dress cause it's pretty
it's hard to be a femme girl in a straight man's world

my advice: perhaps you'd best think twice before next time
cause tonight you're in for a big surprise

you won't know i'm a lesbian until i steal your girlfriend
it's hard to be a femme girl in a straight man's world
