Rubberband Girl

A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me

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

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)

A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband, rubberband, rubberband, rubberband,
Rubberband girl, me

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)

A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me

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)

A rubberband girl, me

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, me
A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband, rubberband, rubberband, rubberband,
Rubberband girl, me

A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband girl, me
A rubberband, rubberband, rubberband, rubberband,
Rubberband girl, me

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