Lyrics

Don't wake the girl
It's rare that she pauses
She tosses and turns in a bedroom ballet
Determining her most worthy of causes
And which one to fight today
The bad guys are in her way
And we'll all pay
She's a buxom-brazen mama out to fight the commonwealth
Why must she do it all?
Maybe if she set aside her arms she could learn to fix herself
Why must she do it all?
She flicked off the judge upon being pardoned
And chopped the remains of her family tree
And bulldozed the towns botanical garden
And set all the june bugs free
In unfounded sympathy and enmity
She's the trivial pursuer out to fight the commonwealth
Why must she do it all?
Maybe if she set aside her arms she could learn to fix herself
Why must she do it all?
