lyrics

There’s no raising girls like us
We have to raise ourselves
We’ve been growing dangerous
Since we were only twelve
We walk up to the water
And we push each other in
It’s the best way
It’s the only way
That we could learn to swim

Because it’s sink or swim
Sink or swim
Sink or swim

Snow White and her sister Rose Red
Lived all by themselves
In a little cottage yes
With books upon the shelves
One day a great big grizzly bear
Came knocking at their door
They welcomed him
Oh they let him in
Till he cried out for more

But they know less is more
Less is more
Less is more

And we knew the end of the story
Before we were even half-grown
No godmother’s granting our wishes
So we’ll just work it out on our own
At least we can count on each other
We’re not here in the forest alone

When we’re good, we’re oh so good
But when we’re bad we’re best
We’ve been doing all we could
To put this to the test
We reach into the fire
And we feel our fingers burn
It’s a lesson
Bitter blessing
That’s the way we live and learn

Oh yes it’s live and learn
Live and learn
Live and learn
