Just a Blind Girl

just a blind girl, Marley and me holding our canes

On our drive home from our Southern California Spring Break Beach Vacation, while sitting in traffic which made a four hour drive into an eight hour drive, we found ourselves listening to a whole lot of music.  A particular song from my teenage years, popped out to me.  Do you remember No Doubt’s song, “Just a Girl?”  Here’s something fun!  How about singing, “Just a Blind Girl,” the next time you hear that song?

 

Take this big ribbon off my eyes

I’m exposed, and it’s no big surprise

Don’t you think I know exactly where I stand

This world is forcing me to hold your hand

“Cause I’m just a blind girl, little ol’ me

Well don’t let me out of your sight

I’m just a blind girl

all pretty and petite

So don’t let me have any rights

Oh… I’ve had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside

So many reasons for me to run and hide

I can’t do the little things, I hold so dear

‘Cause it’s all those little things, that I fear

“Cause I’m just a blind girl

I’d rather not be

‘Cause they don’t let me drive late at night

I’m just a blind girl

Guess I’m some kind of freak

“Cause they all sit and stare with their eyes

I’m just a blind  girl

Take a good look at me

Just your typical prototype

Oh… I’ve had it up to here

Oh… am I making myself clear?

I’m just a blind girl

I’m just a blind girl in the world

That’s all that you’ll let me be!

Oh I’m just a blind girl living in captivity

Your rule of thumb makes me worry some

I’m just a blind girl

What’s my destiny?

What I’ve Isuccumbed to is making me numb

I’m just a blind girl

My apologies

What I’ve become is so burdensome

I’m just a blind girl

lucky me

Twiddle-dum, there’s no comparison

Oh… I’ve had it up to!!!

Oh… I’ve had it up to!!!

Oh… I’ve had it up to here.

 

Never heard of the original?  Here’s No Doubt’s, “Just a Girl.”
