lyrics

She didn’t win, someone else did
They came along, with a much louder song
The banners came down, signs collected around town
Boxes full of stickers and buttons, all those extras made for nothin’

Some folks say it’ll be ok, while others just look away
She shuffles on home, where she can be alone
The campaign shirt she wore is now crumpled up on the floor
What’s a girl to do when her dreams don’t come true?

She gon go have a cocktail and sit at the bar
She’s gon go outside and take a look at the stars
She gon do whatever she wants to do cause
She isn’t responsible for any of you

She gon lay around and watch TV all night
She gon make some popcorn and have a pillow fight
She gon do whatever she wants to do cause
She is not responsible for any of you

She had decided to run for a mix of work and fun
But after facing the rejection, she took some time for reflection
Thought about what she learned, there in was the turn
Her mood began to change when her thoughts rearranged

She felt strong in what she did, even though she did not win
Her efforts were there, she had shown that she cared
Handshakes and smiles, connecting with people for a while
She thought about all she’d done, decided she deserved some fun

She gon go have a cocktail and sit at the bar
She’s gon go outside and take a look at the stars
She gon do whatever she wants to do cause
She isn’t responsible for any of you

She gon lay around and watch TV all night
She gon make some popcorn and have a pillow fight
She gon do whatever she wants to do cause
She is not responsible for any of you

Ooo-ooo, do what you do-oo, things may fall through, but do what you do
Ooo-ooo, do what you do-oo, cause they can work out too, so do what you do
Ooo-ooo, do what you do-oo things may fall through, but they can work out too, so do what you do​
