Song Description

Sometimes we girls just need to step up, grow up, take charge - be a big girl.

Story Behind the Song

I overheard a mother advising her little daughter that it was time to wear her "big girl" smile and the phrase "time to be a big girl" stuck.


V1: I've been accused of being greedy
'Cause I don't accept the word "No"
Never been called needy
'Cause I don't let that part show
Maybe I'm not one or the other
Maybe both at the same time
I just roll with it - put my heart and soul in it
That's my own special rhythm and rhyme

Cho: Time to be a big girl
Time to be a big girl now
Step up and own it - don't be shy
If there ever was a time to take charge of life
It's now - time to be a big girl now

V2: There's a price you pay for being gentle
And a price for being strong
No need to be judgmental
Maybe there's no right or wrong
It all comes down to being honest
Even if it hurts - even if it shames
It's gonna come out anyway - that's why I say
Let the one with none cast blame


Bridge: Don't ask why - don't be shy
Now's the time to own it - you know it

V3: I'm a romantic, not a cynic
I'd rather be wrong than never try
I've been accused once or twice of not being nice
Telling the truth when I should lie
I let the moment tell me
When to lay back and when to shine
That philosophy works for me
The legacy is mine
