I'm really the kind to dazzle and twirl 
Have tantrums like silver slanting rain 
Walk up to strangers
Parade with my pride 

And stride like a lion up 
A mad mountainside 
So steep, so lovely 
Don't think about the fall 

Then suddenly, no warning
No nothing, I`m small 
I'm small
Smaller than anyone, smaller than you 

You see, I'm really the kind 
To cower in the corner 
And pray that some guy 
Will have a kind word to say 

Then be tiny in his arms 
And be stroked to my heart 
And coaxed and caressed 
And combed and undressed 

Then finally I'll trust him
Abandon it all 
Then suddenly, no warning
No nothing, I`m too tall 

I'm tall, taller than anyone
Taller than boys 
I'm tall, taller than anyone
Taller than you 

The pendulum swings both ways 
And I lose my equilibrium 
I swing so fast inside it's motion
That I become the hum 

I become the hum
You see I'm really the kind 
To walk the avenues 
And criticize the mannequins 

And ogle the jewels 
Justify spending the cash 
I don't have 
Break resolutions 

With a naughty little laugh 
I'm nothing unless 
I'm the belle of the ball 
And then suddenly

No warning, no nothing
I've got it all, I see it all
I have it all, I have it all
It is, it is, it is, it is 

It is, my soul, my soul
