Awe Me!

[Written and sung to the beat of 'Kiss' by Prince]


You don't have to be rich to be my girl
You don't have to bewitch to have me reel
Ain't no particular thing that you have to stir in
Just be yourself girl, you had me at your grin

You don't have to be a beauty queen to awe me now
You don't have to get paper thin to have me howl
Ain't no reason why, you've to prowl in the dark
Just be yourself girl, you'll have me bow

You don't have to be a journalist to lead me on
You don't have to slurp academia to the bone
Ain't no doubt in my mind that you're the smartest thing alive
Just be yourself girl from dusk to dawn

You don't have to be contemporary to turn me on
You don't have to be ultra-trendy, so come on
Ain't no particular thing that you've got to adorn
Just be yourself girl, I'm yours alone

You don't have to be exceptional to rule my world
You needn't have to kick the ball, in my court
Ain't no purpose in, trying to swoon me in
Just be yourself girl and accept your regime

You don't have to be genius to blow my mind
You don't have to try hard to oust my doubts
Ain't no question ‘bout it, you've got me locked in
Just be yourself girl, you're great "as is"
