lyrics

Two kids, one dog, one ring
Nothing wrong with that dream, but
I never fantasized about my pure white wedding
I never stuffed a pillow
To see how I'd look prego
I never set my sights on living with Apollo

I always thought I might be more than ordinary
In fact I thought I might just be extraordinary

I see me living free
And I see me and you
Living like we
Always wanted to
Being extraordinary girls

I know a lot of girls
Whose husbands are their worlds
They love to play house and wear little white pearls
I would not hesitate
To argue or debate
That they feel great living in such a happy state

I always thought that might be a little boring
In fact I think I'd like to be a little more exploring

I see me living free
And I see me and you
Living like we
Always wanted to
Being extraordinary girls

Extraordinary
Strong and smart and on our own
Nothing wrong with trying to be
Like yourself not just anyone


They say it goes tick tock
I must not have a clock
I've never had the urge to get myself knocked up
Can't be the only one
Who's marching to this drum
I never wanted to hear kids calling me Mom

Some people think that's just crazy and out of the ordinary
But I think girls like me are extraordinary

I see me living free
And I see me and you
Living like we
Always wanted to
Just being ourselves
Living like no one else
Just being extraordinary girls
