  • Little girls are made of
    Rainbows and fairytales
    They ride on dreams and unicorns
    They fail to lie
    And sometimes they make you fly

    Little boys are made of
    Riddles and silence
    They pull your braids and run away
    They hide their eyes
    And sometimes they make you cry

    And little girls have to compromise
    Between being spicy and nice
    Between being funny and sweet
    And learn to turn their tears
    Into riddles and rainbows
    And wicked songs
