Daddy Long Legs the Musical - Like Other Girls Lyrics

"Like Other Girls" is a song from musical 'Daddy Long Legs' performed by Megan McGinnis (Jerusha) and Paul Alexander Nolan.

I am in a foreign world
They speak a languages of their own
Nobody knows where I have come from, daddy
I can't help but feel alone

I am in a foreign world
I am different, I am strange
I know that I should try to fit in somehow
But I don't I think that I can change

And I know you won't believe it
But I just want to be like other girls
Wear fancy shoes like other girls
Write a literary masterpiece
For scholars to peruse
Like other girls

Sallie McBride is my best friend
I told her that my folks had died
'Cause I can't tell her where I come from, daddy
Is that the same as having lied

For I have shut up the remembrance
'Cause I just wanna be like other girls
Make lemon pies like other girls
Cure disease and write a symphony
And win the Nobel prize
Like other girls

I bought a evening dress
Oh glory be!
You can't imagine how it feel
Dressed in gingham all your life
Wearing hand-me-downs from girls who didn't like you
It takes it tall, the bitterness of wearing your enemie's clothes
Eats into your soul

I am in a foreign world
I am different, I am strange
I know that I should try to fit in somehow
But I don't I think that I can change

And I know you won't believe it
But I just want to be like other girls
Get all dressed up like other girls
Become a scientist, a moralist, a sophiologist, a methodist
A fabian, a freudian, the class valedictorian
Or what else heaven knows
Like other girls
Like other girls
Like other girls
