We're girlies from the 30s, wash the dishes, scrub the floor,
When all of a sudden our hubbies went to war
Did you think we'd shrink in England's needy hour?
Yeah what?
Course not!
Cos we got Girl power!

Our men are fighting World War Two
But we're not gonna boo hoo hoo
It's our World War Two too girls
Plenty we can do girls
We're the World War Two girls
Our war begins right here!

I make weapons in the factory, drill and bolt and screw
With rules so strict they even time you when you're on the loo
Making bombs and bullets, means I'm always mucky
I've put my name down for a bath – I'll get one if I'm lucky!

There is no job that we can't do
It wasn't long till our roles grew
Your country needs you girls
Army navy too, girls
We're the World War Two girls
This is our career...

I am a
Plane-fixin', plain-speakin',
Photo-takin', code-breakin',
Air force miss
Radar-mannin', lorry-drivin',
Weather-guessin', foreign-spyin',
I do all this

I took the role of land girl while our men fight far away
Farming on the home front, helping save the day
Tending crops and animals, manual labour hurts
In the field my uniform's this scratchy tie and shirt

When World War Two is over though
We'll be proud cos we will know
Thanks to us is due girls
Came to the rescue girls
We're the World War Two girls
Original Girl Power!

    To me it means that women got more rights and we got more freedom, also that people gave their lives for others and we all have to do our bit to help.
