Intro: D

Verse:
D                            Bm
  Could dress up, to get love
                                 G
But guess what?, I'm never gonna be that girl

Who's living in a Barbie world
D                            Bm
  Could wake up, And make up,
                                  G
And play dumb, pretending that I need a boy
                      G  
Who's gonna treat me like a toy

Pre-Chorus:
  D                                            
I know the other girlies wanna wear expensive things
Bm
  Like diamond rings
            G
But I don't wanna be the puppet 
                                G  
that you're playing on a string

This queen don't need a king

Chorus:
    D
Oh, I don't know what you've been told

But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
      G                                             G  
Yeah, that is where I'm gonna be because I wanna be

No, I don't wanna sit still, look pretty
D
You get off on your 9 to 5

Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
    G                                              G  
But no, I'm never gonna be 'cause I don't wanna be

No, I don't wanna sit still look pretty

Whistle: D

Verse 2:
D                         Bm
  Mr. Right could be nice,

for one night
                  G
But then he wanna take control

And I would rather fly Solo
D                                  Bm
  Then Snow White, she did it right
                          G
In her life, had 7 men to do the chores
                          G  
'Cause that's not what a lady's for

Pre-Chorus:
    D                                             Bm
The only thing a boy's gonna give a girl for free's captivity
            G                                                G  
And I might love me some vanilla but I'm not that sugar sweet

Call me hbic

Chorus:
    D
Oh, I don't know what you've been told

But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
      G                                             G  
Yeah, that is where I'm gonna be because I wanna be

No, I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

Bridge -x2-:

 Sure, I'm a pretty girl

Up in a pretty world

But they say pretty hurts
