Saturday Morning Sing-Along – I Enjoy Being a Girl, Nancy Kwan

I thought up something that I could do every Saturday morning (in addition to other posts) which is randomly choose a song to share that relates a lot to women, self-esteem, and beauty.  I’ll try and be consistent with this.  Saturday Morning Sing-Along’s first number is by the lovely Nancy Kwan from the movie, Flower Drum Song.

I was happy to find a widescreen video of I Enjoy Being a Girl on YouTube with clear audio.  Enjoy!  Try prancing around your room after a while getting ready like she does, gets the blood going.  Lyrics beneath.  I love the melody and happy vibe.  Makes you want to spin around and flip your hair.  If you’re feeling down about yourself listen to this pick yourself up and don’t let whatever it is get you down!

 

I ENJOY BEING A GIRL

Rogers and Hammerstein’s movie Flower Drum Song

I’m a girl, and by me that’s only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place.
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy,
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I’m cute and funny
And my teeth aren’t teeth, but pearl,
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl!

I flip when a fellow sends me flowers,
I drool over dresses made of lace,
I talk on the telephone for hours
With a pound and a half of cream upon my face!

I’m strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who’ll enjoy being a guy having a girl… like… me.

When men say I’m sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl,
It goes to my head like brandy,
I enjoy being a girl!

When someone with eyes that smoulder
Says he loves ev’ry silken curl
That falls on my iv’ry shoulder,
I enjoy being a girl!

When I hear the compliment’ry whistle
That greets my bikini by the sea,
I turn and I glower and I bristle,
But I happy to know the whistle’s meant for me!

I’m strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who’ll enjoy being a guy having a girl… like… me.
