Sit Still, Look Pretty

I have been trying to remember to write this post for a while now and I will forget until I’m in my car driving with the windows down, which, obviously, doesn’t help because I can’t blog from there. I finally remembered while I’m sitting at a computer so bam, we’re doing it.

So, as you may have guessed from my posts* that I’m super happy single right now. I’m loving working hard to get where I want to be and having as much of the bed as I want and eating popcorn for dinner or chicken nuggets for breakfast if I want to.** So just like being in a relationship come with awesome, sappy love songs, being single comes with awesome, sappy upbeat love songs about yourself.*** One such song is called “Sit Still, Look Pretty” by Daya and I’m obsessed. I’ve literally listened to this song on repeat like five times in a row every time I’ve been in a car recently. So, whether you’re single or not I wanted to share it with you. It’s a little bit of upbeat and a whole lot of girl power and I’m in love. Also, she’s not mean about it. She’s just honest and I think that’s awesome. So, here’s the video and the lyrics so you can follow along and really get the weight of what she’s saying. It’s pretty awesome.

Could dress up
To get love
But guess what?
I’m never gonna be that girl
Who’s living in a Barbie world

Could wake up
In make up,
And play dumb
Pretending that I need a boy
Who’s gonna treat me like a toy

I know the other girlies wanna wear expensive things
Like diamond rings
But I don’t wanna be the puppet that you’re playing on a string
This queen don’t need a king

Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty

Mr. Right could be nice for one night
But then he wanna take control
And I would rather fly solo

That Snow White
She did right
In her life
Had 7 men to do the chores
‘Cause that’s not what a lady’s for

The only thing a boy’s gonna give a girl for free’s captivity
And I might love me some vanilla but I’m not that sugar sweet
Call me HBIC

Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be, because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be, ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty

[2x]
Sure, I’m a pretty girl
Up in a pretty world
But they say pretty hurts
And I don’t wanna sit still
I’m a pretty girl
Up in a pretty world
But no, I won’t sit still, look pretty

Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty

Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty

Sit still, look pretty [4x]

*or not because I’m kind of wishy washy in the Internet world when it comes to how I’m feeling about being single right now
**It’s up to you to decide if I’m just providing an example of if I’ve really had chicken nuggets for breakfast recently
***more like myself because sorry reader, I’m not singing about you πŸ™‚
