Rubberband Girl

See those trees
Bend in the wind
I feel they've got a lot more sense than me
You see I try to resist

A rubberband bouncing back to life
A rubberband bend the beat
If I could learn to give like a rubberband
I'd be back on my feet
A rubberband hold me trousers up
A rubberband ponytails
If I could learn to twang like a rubberband
I'd be a rubberband girl
A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me
Oh I wanna be a rubberband girl
(A rubberband girl, she)

When I slip out
Of my catapult
I gotta land with my feet firm on the ground
And let my body catch up

A rubberband bouncing back to life
A rubberband bend the beat
If I could learn to give like a rubberband
I'd be back on my feet
A rubberband hold me trousers up
A rubberband ponytails
If I could learn to twang like a rubberband
I'd be a rubberband girl
A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me
I wanna be a rubberband girl
(A rubberband girl, she)

Give like a rubberband
Twang like a rubberband
Snap like a rubberband

Rub-a-dub-a-dub-a-duuub
Rub-a-dub-a-duuuub
Rub-a-duuuub

(A rubberband girl, she)
(A rubberband girl, she)

One rubberband won't keep you up
Two rubberbands won't keep you up
Three rubberbands won't keep you up

Here I go... {rubberband vocals}
(A rubberband girl, she)
(A rubberband girl, she)
...Yeah!

(A rubberband girl, she)
One rubberband won't keep you up
Two rubberbands won't keep you up
Three rubberbands won't keep you up

(A rubberband girl, she)
(A rubberband girl, she)
(A rubberband girl, she)
(A rubberband girl, she)
