You’re never gonna get any of those things
You never ask for, so toughen up cookie
Make your demands strong like your coffee
Ask nicely for the things that matter
Before you lose them in the crumble
Speak up, sugar, in your sweetest big girl voice
Remember, you’re never gonna get lost
If you just stop and ask for direction
No matter how far you’ve gone
You’re never gonna go wrong if you just try
To understand that people mean no harm
Everyone’s just trying to make things right
So pick your battles, darling, and lay claim
Only on those who make you feel human
Be brave, cupcake, ain’t this life grand?
Nothing’s as bad as you think it is, I swear
So, roll up your sleeves, honey, and let’s make a wishlist
Because you’re never gonna get any of those things
You never ever ask for
And, you’re never gonna get any of those things
That you’re not willing to work for
