Star of the show

The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is

I’ve decided that the theme for this week is all about love. You know that whole saying, “They’re playing our song…”? Well this week, we are posting songs that make us think of those we love. It doesn’t have to be a lover, husband or boyfriend. It can be a best friend, or a sibling or a child. Just post a song that makes you think of someone you love.

I was going through my list of songs in my head when this song popped out along with an image of my second niece. She is such a badass when it comes to real life. Doesn’t take shit from anyone and keeps everyone on their toes. It is true that we both end up fighting (literally, fists and all) with each other everytime we are together for more than an hour but it is so much fun to rile her up. She packs a lot of punch in that short form of hers. She is 3.7 years but behaves very mature in some ways. And literally childish in others. Well that is expected since she is a child 🙂 But she does make me forget that most of the time. She takes the role of the protector of the kids in my family even though she is the youngest of the lot. But runs screaming like a banshee once she sees a dog nearby. 🙄 She is such an adorable kid and I love her so much. She also does some very cool moves by watching others perform. Sometimes I just go about doing my Zumba moves and she copies them so perfectly.
So no wonder that this song reminds me of her. I wish she would perform for this song one day in her school (she did a punjabi number with her classmates last year for the annual day function)

Lyrics from Metro Lyrics

GIRLZ
Bring on the lights set the stage
In the mood to celebrate
We’ll stick together through whatever hand in hand

Let’s live it up
Let’s live it up, oh

Don’t need no boys to tell us no
We refuse to be controlled
We’re shooting stars oh do you see us glow
We’ll do what we want
Whatever we want, oh yeah

Be who we are that’s the motto
Doing our thing like uh oh
Showin’ what we got like we won the lotto, ha!

GIRLS!
Come on turn it up and sing along
Ooooh!
We march to the beat of our own drums
Cos tonight we’re standing out
Like diamonds in the crowd
So let’s get loud
Oh Oh Oh
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!

Got no fear walk the walk
Flip your hair back n forth
Be the centre of attention let ’em know
You’re the star of the show
Star of the show
Lookin’ good steppin’ out
No you wont break us down
Remember that you’re always beautiful
You got it all, you,you got it all
You got it all, you,you got it all

Be who we are that’s the motto
Doing our thing like uh oh
Showin’ what we got like we won the lotto, ha!

GIRLS!
Come on turn it up and sing along like
Ooooh!
We march to the beat of our own drum
Cos Tonight we’re standing out
Like diamonds in the crowd
So lets get loud
Oh Oh Oh
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!

Oh, You know that you can’t do no wrong
When you feel like dancing with us
You know you are, you know you are
Hey! hey! hey!

GIRLS!
Come on turn it up and sing along
Ooooh!
We march to the beat of our own drums
Cos Tonight we’re standing out
Like diamonds in the crowd
So lets get loud
Oh Oh Oh
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!
ooooooohh Girls!

    Your story reminds me of my own daughter. She was exactly like that growing up, and is still like that in so many ways. Even though they can be a pain in the ass, I love sassy little girls who already seem to have a foothold in this crazy thing called life. Thanks for sharing the song too. I was impressed by all their voices! 🙂

      True. I am very sure she can handle life much better than the other two and may be help them too in the process 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity, Helen.

    “Wonderful story and apt piece of music!,” she commented. “Here’s to bad-asses, sassies, brilliant little girls!”

    I had no idea there was such a thing as a middle school girl band! I suppose with hip hop as a legitimate dance taught in legitimate dance classes right beside ballet, contemporary, and tap, it was inevitable. I’m impressed. What I like best about this video is how it emphasizes their strength and camaraderie. They really are presented as little girls unaffected by by society’s habit of sexualizing and objectifying them. How empowering!

      I think this is one of the very few videos that I have come across which features high school girls. I am not sure if they are really a band coz I havent seen any other videos of their yet. Some covers, yes. 🙂

        I hope they are. That number seemed like an introduction. I think they could be a driving force for girls their age.
