Song of the Day #3,318: ‘Most Girls’ – Hailee Steinfeld

One more placeholder before I get to Round Four of Montauk Madness. I was browsing YouTube for new videos to feature and came across this song by Hailee Steinfeld. It’s an empowering feminist anthem worthy of a little publicity on my modest platform.

I really like Steinfeld as an actress. Her Oscar nomination for True Grit was well-earned and I would have given her another for The Edge of Seventeen.

As a musical artist she’s a bit pedestrian, but likable enough. And (as in today’s SOTD) she seems to tackle worthy subject matter.

[Verse 1]
Some girls feel best in their tiny dresses
Some girls, nothin’ but sweatpants, looking like a princess
Some girls kiss new lips every single night
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebrating life

[Pre-Chorus]
You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in
‘Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We’re all just playing a game in a way, trying to win at life

[Chorus]
Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful
Most girls work hard, go far, we are unstoppable
Most girls, our fight to make every day, no two are the same
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like

[Post-Chorus]
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’
I wanna be like, I wanna be like

[Verse 2]
Some girls like to keep their physique real private
Some girls wear jeans so tight ’cause it feels so right, yeah
Some girls, every day searching, keep the page turning
Sleepin’ in late cause they just celebrating life

[Pre-Chorus]
You know some days you feel so good in your own skin
But it’s okay if you wanna change the body that you came in
‘Cause you look greatest when you feel like a damn queen
We’re all just playing a game in a way, trying to win at life

[Chorus]
Most girls are smart and strong and beautiful
Most girls work hard, go far, we are unstoppable
Most girls, our fight to make every day, no two are the same
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like

[Post-Chorus]
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’
I wanna be like, I wanna be like

[Bridge]
Most girls, (yeah)
Most girls, (wanna be, wanna be, wanna be)
Most girls, our fight to make every day, no two are the same
I wanna be like

[Outro]
Most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like most girls
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’
I wanna be like, I wanna be like
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’
I wanna be like
They’re stayin’ out late cause they just celebratin’ life
