Take this pink ribbon|off my eyes

I'm exposed|and it's no big surprise

Don't ya think I know|exactly where I stand

This world is forcing me|to hold your hand

'Cause I'm just a girl|Well, little old me

Well don't let me|out of your sight

Oh, I'm just a girl

All pretty and petite

So don't let me|have any rights

Oh I've had it|up to here

The moment that|I step outside

So many reasons|for me to run and hide

I can't do the little things|I hold so dear

'Cause it's all those|little things that I fear

'Cause I'm just a girl|I'd rather not be

'Cause they won't let me|drive late at night

Oh, I'm just a girl|Guess I'm some kind of freak

'Cause they all sit|and stare with their eyes

Oh, am I making myself clear

I'm just a girl

I'm just a girl in the world

- How much is this, Lori?|- It's very expensive.

It's very expensive.

Look, I got money|to spend in here.

I don't think we have anything for you.|You're obviously in the wrong place.

Please leave.

You know, even though we've watched|"Pretty Woman" like 36 times...

- I never get tired of making fun of it.|- Oh, I know.

Aww, poor thing. Look!|They won't let her shop.

Yeah, like those salesgirls in Beverly|Hills aren't bigger whores than she is.

I know!

Oh, my God, listen to that|sad, sad music as she leaves.

It's like, boo-hoo. Uhh.

But it is actually|kind of sad.

Anything you see here we can do, by the|way. Get ready to have some fun, okay?

- Okay.|- Mary Pat, Mary Kate, Mary Frances, Tovah.

- Let's see it, come on! Let's see the outfit.|- How divine!

Exactly how obscene-

I just get really happy|when they finally let her shop.

Okay, so I have|nothing to wear.

We don't even have time to make|anything new before we go out.

Well, what about this?

- Did you lose weight? - Actually, I have|been trying this new fat-free diet I invented.

All I've had to eat for the past six days|are Gummi Bears, jelly beans, and candy corns.

God, I wish I had|your discipline.

- This is it|- Work this

- Diddy-bum diddy-bum pow|- Here it is

I can't believe|how cute I look!

I know! You know what? This is like|the cutest we've ever looked.

Oh, it's definitely the cutest. Don't you|love how we can just say that to each other...

- and we know that we're not being conceited?|- Oh, I know.

No, we're just|being honest.

- Be my lover, Wanna be my lover|- Lover

Go ahead and take your time|Boy you gotta feel secure

Before I make you mine|Baby you have to be sure

You wanna be my lover|Wanna be my lover

God. I hope some cute guys get here|tonight. They were cute last night.

- Oh, they were cute.|- Really cute! - Oh!

- Hey, Michele! Romy!|- We'll take two Diet Cokes?

Right, with extra cherries.|Don't move. I'll be right back.

Okay. I have the yuckiest taste|in my mouth from those taquitos.

- Eeew.|- I hope I don't get indigestion.

Hey, remember that time I barfed|from bad Mexican food? It was so gross.

- Oh, my God, I hate throwing up in public.|- Me too! Ooh.

I can't believe it. There are|absolutely no guys here tonight.

I know. None.

Come on, Michele, let's just|go dance with ourselves.


Put your hands in the air

'Cause there's a party over here|So grab yourself a beer

And we could|get on with the world

Swear to God.|Sometimes I wish I were a lesbian.

You wanna try and have sex sometime?|Just to see if we are?

What? Yeah, right, Michele. Just the thought|of having sex with another woman creeps me out.

But if we're not married by|the time we're 30, ask me again.

- Okay.|- Tell me can you feel the

Masked girls comin'|with the fever, fever, fever

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh|Stayin' alive, stayin' alive
