No Doubt’s “Just a Girl,” a 1995 ska-punk hit, from their album “Tragic Kingdom,” challenges gender stereotypes. Written by Gwen Stefani and Tom Dumont, the song highlights societal double standards and unrealistic beauty ideals women face.

Just a girl Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I’m exposed, and it’s no big surprise
Don’t you think I know exactly where I stand?
This world is forcing me to hold your hand

[Chorus]

‘Cause I’m just a girl, oh, little old me
Well, don’t let me out of your sight
Oh, I’m just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don’t let me have any rights

[Post-Chorus]

Oh, I’ve had it up to here

[Verse 2]

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons for me to run and hide
I can’t do the little things I hold so dear
‘Cause it’s all those little things that I fear

[Chorus]

‘Cause I’m just a girl, I’d rather not be
‘Cause they won’t let me drive late at night
Oh, I’m just a girl, guess I’m some kind of freak
‘Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes
Oh, I’m just a girl, take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype

[Post-Chorus]

Oh, I’ve had it up to here
Oh, am I making myself clear?

[Bridge]

I’m just a girl
I’m just a girl in the world
That’s all that you’ll let me be

[Chorus]

Oh, I’m just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb makes me worrisome
Oh, I’m just a girl, what’s my destiny?
What I’ve succumbed to is making me numb
Oh, I’m just a girl, my apologies
What I’ve become is so burdensome
Oh, I’m just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum, there’s no comparison

[Outro]

Oh, I’ve had it up to
Oh, I’ve had it up to
Oh, I’ve had it up to here
