Song Description

Humorous song about the role models girls have today that I didn't have when I was little playing with Barbi.

Lyrics

Verse
She's putting on her shin guards, lacing up her cleats
She never wears high heals, on her beautiful flat feet
Her hair's back in a ponytail, and her skin is cinamon brown
Her arms and legs have muscles, oh, she doesn't mess around:

Chorus
She's a Get Real Girl (get real), she's happy and secure
She was made to play sports, she's anything but demure!
She's a Get Real Girl (get real), she has ankles that bend!
and if I had her when I was little I would make her Barbi's friend.

Verse
If Gabi had a voicebox, you'd never hear her say:
"Let's go shopping," or "I wonder what Ken?s doing today"
She doesn't have a closet that she tries to fill with clothes
Gabi has a passport, and she's always on the go!

Chorus
She's a Get Real Girl (get real), she's happy and secure
She was made to play sports, she's anything but demure!
She's a Get Real Girl (get real), she has ankles that bend!
and if I had her when I was little I would make her Barbi's friend.

Bridge
Of course, Gabi could kick Barbi's ass-- if she wanted to
It'd be "one for the Real Girls" and the plastic girls would lose.
But, pull the string on her back, and Gabi will explain:
"Barbi?s just a capitalist construction of female gender roles--
Barbi's not to blame!"

Chorus
She's a Get Real Girl (get real), she's smart and fun
She's a friend to all, and an enemy to none!
She's a Get Real Girl (get real), she has ankles that bend!
and if I had her when I was little I would make her Barbi's friend.
