Daya – Sit Still, Look Pretty lyrics

Could dress up, to get love
But guess what?
I'm never gonna be that girl
Who's living in a Barbie world


Could wake up, in make up, and play dumb
Pretending that I need a boy
Who's gonna treat me like a toy

I know the other girlies wanna wear expensive things, and diamond rings
But I don't wanna be the puppet that you're playing on a string
This queen don't need a king

Oh I don't know what you've been told
But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
Yeah that is where I'm gonna be, because I wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no I'm never gonna be, cause I don't wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still look pretty

Mr. Right could be nice, for one night
But then he wanna take control
And I would rather fly solo

Then Snow White
She did right in her life
Had 7 men to do the chores
'Cause that's not what a lady's for

The only thing that a boy's gonna give a girl for free's captivity
And I might love me some vanilla but I'm not that sugar sweet
Call me hbic

Oh I don't know what you've been told
But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
Yeah that is where I'm gonna be, because I wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no I'm never gonna be, 'cause I don't wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still look pretty

Sure I'm a pretty girl up in a pretty world
But they say pretty hurts
And I don't wanna sit still
I'm a pretty girl up in a pretty world
But no I won't sit still, look pretty
[x2]

Oh I don't know what you've been told
But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
Yeah that is where I'm gonna be, because I wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no I'm never gonna be, cause I don't wanna be
Cause I don't wanna sit still look pretty

Oh I don't know what you've been told
But this gal right here's gonna rule the world
Yeah that is where I'm gonna be because I wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

You get off on your 9 to 5
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no I'm never gonna be cause I don't wanna be
No I don't wanna sit still, look pretty

Sit still, look pretty

Sit still, look pretty

Sit still, look pretty

Sit still, look pretty
