Sheryl Crow – Motivation lyrics
Little white girl
In a shiny black car
Hanging out
With her friends
And doing black tar
Daddy pays
For the wedding
With a fist
Full of dollars
Cost as much
As the state
Of Guatemala

Oh, why
Even try?

Well I got a big car
And a flat screen tv
All my loser friends
And my boyfriend's family
Bring bags of food
And watch
Reality freakshows
Everybody's faking it
But nobody thinks so

Oh, why
Even try?

Got no grease on my hands
Got no serious plans
Whole world's
Waiting for me
'Cause all I gotta do
Is get it for free

Got no reason to bitch
Ain't no parties
I've missed
Got to have it that way
'Cause baby I got

Skinny young dude
In a hundred dollar
Tee shirt
In King James kicks
And a brand new manicure
Hotties doing pilates
With the snotties
And the pleasers
In the back door
At Coconut Teasers

Even try?

Well, I dropped
Out of school
When I was seventeen
'Cause I didn't have time
To study my magazines
'Cause there's
A lot to learn
From the privileged few
Like how to build a brand
Wearing high heeled shoes

Oh, why
Even try?

(Repete 3 verse)


I'm gonna own this town (3x)
Yeah, it's all mine

Oh, why
Even try?

(Repete 3 verse)


(Repete 3 verse)
