(I Wanna Be) Like Other Girls

Mulan


I wanna be like other girls
Climb up a tree like other girls can
Just to be free like other girls
Get to be

To slouch when I sit!
To eat a whole cake!
Feel the sun on my feet!
Get dirty!
Act silly!
Be anything I want to be
Dance around!
In my underwear!

To run really fast!
To get rid of this fan!
To eat a whole cake!
Get crazy!
With frosting!

No escorts!
No manners!
No nursemaids!
No worries!
No hands folded perfect
Like holding a lily

I wanna be like other girls
Scrape up my knee like other girls can
Just to be free like other girls
Get to be

To speak for myself!
To sing way off key!
Marry someone I've met who loves me for me

No escorts!
No manners!
No nursemaids!
No worries!
No hands folded perfect
Like holding a lily

No pinchy shoes!

I wanna be like other girls
Climb up a tree like other girls can
Just to be free like other girls
Get to be!
