There are worse things I could do
Than go with a boy or two
Even though the neighbourhood
Thinks I'm trashy and no good
I suppose it could be true
But there are worse things I could do

I could flirt with all the guys
Smile at them and bat my eyes
Press against them when we dance
Make them think they stand a chance
Then refuse to see it through
That's a thing I'd never do

I could stay home every night
Wait around for mister right
Take cold showers everyday
And throw my life away
On a dream that won't come true

I could hurt someone like me
Out of spite or jealousy
I don't steal and I don't lie
But I can feel and I can cry
A fact I'll bet you never knew
But to cry in front of you
That's the worst thing I could do

    It's saying that you need to put things in perspective for others, but first for yourself. If you think that the little bad things you do are so horrible, you will suffer, and you shouldn't punish yourself, just do your best to do what you think is good and don't judge others as harshly as you judge yourself, or they'll judge themselves as harshly as you are judging yourself. Love thyself and others, and it will catch on.

    It's about slut-shaming. How girls should be in control of their bodies and not wait around for their 'mister right' because that's wasting your life. She knows what she wants and she goes out and gets it- she's a strong woman for not caring what other people think but occasionally it gets to her. But she won't let them see it's got to her 'it's the worst thing she could do'

    It shows how you need to except on what you do in your life. Becuase somewhere out there, there is someone who has it worse. Be grateful.
