If She Knew What She Wants Circa 2021
We were four young ladies, trying to find fame in a band
We soon found ourselves on TV via American Bandstand,
We benefitted from the videos that were played on MTV
There is an endless debate about who is the most pretty.
We all wrote and tried to emote our feelings on the stage
Our influences were varied from Janis Joplin to Jimmy Page,
We started out as two sisters and a shy waif named Suzanna
In our own unique way, we can rock it out as well as Santana.
We added a bass player or two; we were soon out on a tour
We were as likely to say hello mate as proclaiming bonjour,
We made you dance via circumstance dressed as Egyptians
More than just pretty faces, we were respected as musicians.
Fueled by the media’s need to gossip, slander and thus divide
We gave up on ourselves and let the group go down the slide,
We were so much more than pretty decorations or bangles
It is a shame that life can create twisted twirls and tangles.
We are older now and unlike the musicians today, play it live
We have families and at times maladies, but can rock a vibe,
We know not whether we will continue as an eternal flame
But we made some noise with the boys and played the game!
