Barbie – I Am A Girl Like You lyrics

Anneliese (speaking)-
I'm savoring my first and last
Taste of freedom before getting
Married next week.

Erika (speaking)-
At least, you're not an
Indentured servant.

Anneliese (speaking)-
Indentured servant?

Erika-
If I'd like to have my breakfast hot
Madame Carp will make me pay,
And I have to fetch the eggs myself
And the barn's a mile away.
It's cold and wet
But still I get an omelette on my plate,
But in my head I'm back in bed
Snuggled up and sleeping late.

Anneliese (speaking)-
Really?

Erika (speaking)-
Really. But it's all right.
I mean, I'm used to it.
And you?

Anneliese (speaking)-
Well...

Erika (speaking)-
Well?
Anneliese-
If I want some eggs I ring the bell
And the maid comes running in,
And she serves them on a silver tray
And she brings a cookie tin.
And while I eat, she rubs my feet
And strolling minstrels play,
But I'd rather be in my library
Reading science books all day.

Erika-
I'm just like you
Anneliese (speaking)-
(you are?)
Erika-
You're just like me
There's somewhere else we'd rather be
Somewhere that's ours
Somewhere that dreams come true
Yes I am a girl like you.
You'd never think that it was so
But now I've met you and I know,
It's plain as day
Sure as the sky is blue
I am a girl like you.

Anneliese (speaking)-
So, you're a singer?

Erika (speaking)-
No, I work at Madame Carp's penitentiary.
Uh, I mean, Dress Emporium.

Anneliese (speaking)-
I love Madame Carp's dresses!

Erika (speaking)-
I made the one you're wearing
.

Anneliese (speaking)-
You made this? The design looks so complicated!

Erika (speaking)-
Oh, it isn't really.
(sings)
First I choose a fabric from the rack
And I pin the pattern down,
And I stitch it in the front and back
And it turns into a gown!
Anneliese-
I wear my gown
Without my crown
And dance around my room
Both-
And imagine life without the strife
Of an unfamiliar groom.

Anneliese (speaking)-
But I'd never let my mother know.
I wouldn't want to disappoint her.

Erika (speaking)-
I completely understand.

Anneliese-
I'm just like you
Erika-
(I think that's true)
Anneliese-
You're just like me
Erika-
(Yes I can see)
Both-
We take responsibility
Anneliese-
We carry through
Erika-
(We carry through)
Both-
Do what we need to go.
Yes I am a girl like you.
Anneliese-
I'm just like you
Erika-
(I'm just like you)
Anneliese-
You're just like me
Erika-
(You're just like me)
Both-
It's something anyone can see
Anneliese-
A heart that beats
Erika-
(a heart that beats)
Both-
A voice that speaks the truth
Yes I am a girl like you.

    My sister and me sing this song everyday. Both of us love singing and we are delighted with this song. I also have a 8 year old daughter who is very curious. When she had heard the song, she enjoyed it but she asked me why this song was made. I laughed and told her " It is about the similarities of the two women" She asked me" why do they do not want to marry?" I replied" because they wanted to stay independent" She asked me again" Why doesn't Erika leave Madame Carp?" I said to her" Because her parents have died and she has no where else to live" After two days, I took her to the cinema and we watched the movie" The Princess and the Pauper" It was a very good movie and I advise all of you to watch it. After the movie, she had many questions but that is another story.

    P.S. I am 36 years old and my daughter's name is Elizabeth. We live in the USA, Belgium and today is a Saturday, August. I am a regular housewife and a single.

    Thank you for reading my bit. I send you my best wishes.
