What It Feels Like for a Girl

Vögel nisten in ihrem blauen Haar. Himmel und Hölle.

Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots
‘Cause it’s OK to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly you’d love to know what it’s like
Wouldn’t you
What it feels like for a girl

Ian McEwan, The Cement Garden
