I do it for the joy it brings
'Cause I'm a joyful girl
'Cause the world owes me nothing 
And we owe each other the world
I do it 'cause it's the least I can do
I do it 'cause I learned it from you
And I do it just because I want to 
'Cause I want to

Everything I do is judged
And they mostly get it wrong
But oh well
Bathroom mirror has not budged
And the woman who lives there can tell
The truth from the stuff that they say
She looks me in the eye
So, you would you prefer the easy way
No, well OK then
Don't cry

I wonder if everything I do
I do instead 
Of something I want to do more
The question fills my head
And I know there's no grand plan here
This is just the way it goes
When everything else seems unclear
I guess at least I know

I do it for the joy it brings
'Cause I'm a joyful girl
'Cause the world owes me nothing 
And we owe each other the world
I do it 'cause it's the least I can do
I do it 'cause I learned it from you
I do it just because I want to
