    She's an ugly girl in a pretty world
    a little too much weight on her frame
    fat and lazy, ugly as sin
    with only herself to blame
    How does she know - He told her so

    She's a dumb girl in a smart world
    no higher education, and no career
    dumb as an ox, without a good job
    she'll never get out of here
    How does she know - He told her so

    She's an awkward girl in a cool world
    not blond and toned to perfection
    clumsy, uncool, she doesn't fit in
    her life is without direction
    How does she know - He told her so

    She's a whiney girl in a cruisy world
    talks about bills, the kids and the house
    nagging, complaining, dull as they come
    a shy, unattractive, little mouse
    How does she know - He told her so

    She's a slave girl in a free world
    like a puppet dancing on strings
    taking his crap, treated like dirt
    she's lucky she's married to him
    How does she know - He told her so

    She's an ungrateful girl in a giving world
    took the kids one night and disappeared
    wrote him a note, it was just five words
    "anywhere is better than here"
    How does she know - He told her so
