Cause I fight like a girl

On Wednesday, my sister sent me a text message asking me if I had ever heard of this song or seen the video. I told her no but would look it up. She said it reminded her of me and her and the video had a really good message. So I looked it up and I have to tell you, I cried the first time I watched/heard this. I don't know why I cried. It just hit me hard. I think because I am a mom now and the video is to the movie Suffragette which is about women's rights and she has a son in the movie and I think it just pulled at my heart strings. 

Or maybe it was the lyrics that got me. I don't know. But I thought I would share it on this rainy Friday.

What song is this you ask?

It is called Fight Like A Girl and it is by Kalie Shorr.

Here are the lyrics and the music video. Please watch it. Please listen to it. Please teach it.


"He’s calling out my name, says Iʼm just a featherweight
He thinks the slightest breeze could blow me over
But what he doesn’t know, is Iʼve got a slingshot and a stone
And I can win with no one in my corner
So donʼt you even try to hold me back


[Chorus]
I got my high heels on with my boxing gloves
I can knock you out with a one two punch
Iʼm perfume sweet and whiskey strong
I damn sure ainʼt no underdog
I might fall down, but I get back up
I shine brightest when the goingʼs tough
You say I canʼt, well darling watch me
You canʼt stop me
Cause I fight like a girl


Iʼm little but Iʼm loud, just wanna make my mama proud
And you can tell without a doubt that Iʼm her daughter
She raised me to believe that I can be anything
So when you push me I’ll just push back harder


[Chorus]
I got my high heels on with my boxing gloves
I can knock you out with a one two punch
Iʼm perfume sweet and whiskey strong
I damn sure ainʼt no underdog
I might fall down, but I get back up
I shine brightest when the goingʼs tough
You say I canʼt, well darling watch me
You canʼt stop me
Cause I fight like a girl


I fight tough, I fight hard, I fight fair
Wonʼt stop fighting til I get there
No I ainʼt afraid to cry
Everybodyʼs gotta feel something sometimes
I fight tough, I fight hard, I fight fair
Wonʼt stop fighting til I get there
I ainʼt afraid to cry
I ainʼt afraid to fight


[Chorus]
I got my high heels on with my boxing gloves
I can knock you out with a one two punch
Iʼm perfume sweet and whiskey strong
I damn sure ainʼt no underdog
I might fall down, but I get back up
And I shine brightest when the goingʼs tough
You say I canʼt, well darling watch me
You canʼt stop me
Cause I fight like a girl


I fight tough, I fight hard, I fight fair
Wonʼt stop fighting til I get there
No I ainʼt afraid to cry
I fight like a girl"



Have a great weekend everyone!
