Silver dollars
Diamond rings
Lots of pretty pretty things
She could have the whole wide world
She don't need it, not our girl

She's got gold insider her heart
She don't need it in her shopping cart

Shes a lady!

Silver dollars don't mean a thing
When you're dancing in the devils ring
Play it mean, you’ll pay the price
St Peter gonna cause you all kinda strife

Lady Lady….lady

Influential, girl got clout
Independent, takes her own route


She don't need no one to tell her yes
Shes a venus with a hepburn silouhette

She don’t need no one to tell her yes
She’s Hillary, with Gilda Radners wit


She don’t do no
No Skanky hoes job
No Janky Nose job
No back door blow jobs

She don’t need no
No ego spanker
No investment bankers
No wanker tankers

She’s a lady
She’s a lady
She’s a laaaaaady

She won’t let the petty break her soul
She won’t settle for the status quo
She don’t need to fear a life that’s bold

She don’t needa no!
She don’t needa no!
She don’t needa no!
Ohhhh Ohhhhh….
