LyricsEdit

Remember how we used to party up all night
Sneakin' out, lookin' for a taste of real life
Drinkin' in the small town firelight
(Pabst Blue Ribbon on ice)

Sweet 16 and we had arrived
Walkin' down the streets as they whistle, “Hi, hi!”
Stealin' police guys with the senior guys
Teachers said we'd never make it out alive

There she was, my new best friend
High heels in her hands, swayin' in the wind
Oh she starts to cry, mascara running down her little Bambi eyes
"Lana, how I hate those guys."

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Somethin' that we'd die for, it's our curse
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together 'cause we put love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen

And that's where the beginning of the end begun
Everybody knew that we had too much fun
We were skippin' school and drinkin' on the job
(With the boss)

Sweet 16 and we had arrived
Baby's table-dancin' at the local dive
Cheerin' our names in the pink spotlight
Drinkin' cherry schnapps in the velvet night

Yo, we used to go break in
Into hotels, glimmer and we'd swim
Runnin' from the cops in our black bikini tops
Screamin', "Get us while we’re hot, get us while we’re hot!"
(Come on, take a shot)

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Somethin' that we'd die fo,r it's a curse
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together 'cause we put our love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen

The prettiest in-crowd that you had ever seen
Ribbons in our hair and our eyes gleamed mean
A freshmen generation of degenerate beauty queens
And you know something?

They were the only friends I ever had
We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
I got sent away and was wavin' on the train platform
Cryin' 'cause I know I'm never comin' back

This is what makes us girls
We all look for heaven and we put our love first
Somethin' that we'd die for, it's a curse
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it

This is what makes us girls
We don't stick together 'cause we put our love first
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
It's all gonna happen
