I put my make-up on,
high-heeled shoes and then I’m gone
to find a place where I can be more

I’m tired of being sensible,
honest, reverent and dependable.
I know all I need to know about

I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend anymore!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend anymore!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend!

I’ve been so tried and true
now I’m going to be like you
I’ll find a place where I can be more

It’s all the same old story.
Sick of the reflected glory
I’m off to find a spotlight of my own

I know I know I don’t have to wait
I won’t hesitate any more
Screw the girl next door.

Because I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend anymore!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend anymore!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend!

Variations on a theme,
yet another beauty queen with
no parade, no flowers and no rolls-royce

Without a second place
how will I know I’ve won the race
Unless I find a best friend of my own

(But she won’t want to, we don’t want to, they don’t want to, you don’t want to)

I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend anymore!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend!
I don’t want to be the pretty girl’s best friend anymore!
There is more to me!
