Check out the song lyrics here!



Broken Tiaras
Im just a little girl
I love to play with toys
I used to have a little world
Now my little worlds destroyed

They want to put me on display
Like an animal in a zoo
All I want to do is play
And be a normal kid like you

I dont want a pixy stick
No no
I dont want a spray tan
No no
I dont want to dance provocatively around a chair

Please release me TLC
Kids deserve their privacy
My Mom wants to be a reality celebrity on TV
But I just want to be free

We drove 300 miles to be
at a pageant in a shopping mall
I missed my friends birthday party
Now I dont care if I win at all

My Mommys in a bad mood
cause I forgot my dance routine
I bet she wouldnt even move
If she were on stage like me

I dont want hair spray
No no
I dont want blue eye shadow
No no
I dont want false eyelashes and poofy hair

Please release me TLC
Kids deserve their dignity
My Mom wants to be a reality celebrity on TV
But I just want to be free

Do you have a kid of your own that you love and take care of
Would you want her to be known as a contestant on toddlers and tiaras

Please release me TLC
Dont ruin my childhood memories
My parents want to be reality celebrities on TV
But I just want to be me



You Dont Need a Boyfriend
You help your parents take care of your home
You dont use too many minutes on your cell phone
You do your homework and do well in school
You have a part time job on the weekends too

Youre in the school play and sing in the choir
Opinions of you couldnt get much higher
Youre a smart girl and you make great choices
Except for your boyfriend

You dont need a boyfriend if hes not nice
You dont need a boyfriend if hes the jealous type
You dont need a boyfriend if hes intrusive
You dont need a boyfriend if hes verbally abusive
When it comes to love you gotta make the right choice
pay attention to the nice boys

You have great friends that always have your back
When you have a lazy day your friends keep you on track
You support each other in good times and bad
Theyve all pointed out quite a few red flags

Since youve been with this guy you hardly see them at all
You dont respond to their texts or pick up when they call
Your friendships are precious and you should enjoy them
Now get rid of your boyfriend

You dont need a boyfriend if hes not nice
You dont need a boyfriend if hes the jealous type
You dont need a boyfriend if hes intrusive
You dont need a boyfriend if hes verbally abusive
A boy who loves his girlfriend wont intimidate her
That boys a girl hater

You can go to college and earn a degree
Instead of wasting time with that loser
Or be a scientist and discover great things
Instead of wasting time with that loser
You can be the first woman to walk on the moon
Instead of wasting time with that loser
Or orbit the earth in a hot air balloon
Instead of wasting time with that loser

We dont mean to condescend
You dont need a boyfriend



Stranger Danger
He was nine years old and just got out of school
Riding his bike through the neighborhood
His neighbor saw him riding near a blue van
Being driving by a creepy man

That was the last time anyone saw him
so were here to give you a warnin

Its Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Ooh the boys missing now

Lisa was a daughter a sister and friend
Her Mother asked her to run an errand
She went to the store as she was instructed
Security footage shows her getting abducted

That was the last time anyone saw her
Mommys hold on to your daughters

Its Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Ooh the girls missing now

There are so many children who have disappeared
Several thousand kids are kidnapped every year
we need to work together to protect our kids
and prevent them from being exploited

Hillary said it in her classy style
It takes a village to raise a child

Its Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Ooh the boys missing now

Its Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Ooh the girls missing now

Its Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Stranger Danger
Ooh the kids missing now



Menstruation
Youre just a girl youre growing up now
and youll be a woman someday
Something soon is gonna happen
So youll be able to procreate

Ooh menstruation

Were gonna tell you
Were gonna tell you what to do

Youll see some blood and get some cramps now
You might medicine for the pain
use panti-liners or pads or tampons
so your clothes dont get blood stains

Youll need an examination
To prevent the inflammation
And a doctors explanation
Will provide some education
You might feel some aggravation
From the hormone stimulation
That comes during ovulation
Leaving you with menstruation

Your bodys ready to have a baby
So theres something else you should know
When you become sexually active
Youre gonna need to use birth control

Ooh menstruation

Now we just told you
Now we just told you what to do


Mommy has Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy
Sorry that Im so dizzy
I really wanted to go outside and play
even though its so drizzly
Kind a feels like a fevers coming
But I just ate a sandwich my Mom just made
and she looks so glad
Now I must admit
Ive been getting suspicious
That shes up to no good
Everythings so delicious
But how can I be sick again
I was okay at Daddys last weekend

I wonder if Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
cuz I feel sick tonight

I shouldnt jump to conclusions
Is Mommy poisoning me?
I might be having delusions but
What did she do with the glue
That was just laying next to my bowl of fruit

Could it be Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
cuz I just puked all night

She likes when were at the hospital
Or the doctors call
She gets attention through me
Unfortunately

Now theres no diagnosis
Im in the hospital bed
The doctors dont even know
I dont want to complain and say why me
But she just injected something into my I.V.

Now I believe Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
Mommy has munchausen syndrome by proxy
And I might die tonight



Things You Shouldnt Do
When I was a girl I was curious
And unsupervised frequently
I complained every day and always wanted my way
And didnt listen to anything my parents told me

You could say that I grew up the hard way
but I wish only good things for you
So I want you to listen
To the advice I am giving
It will make things in your life easier to get through

Dont rub your eyes when your hands are dirty
Dont stick anything in your ears
Dont swim when no lifeguard is present
Dont fart where someone might hear
Dont email naked pictures of yourself to your boyfriend
Or make a sex tape or get a tattoo
Make sure you remember these things because
These are things you shouldnt do

In my teens I was flirtatious and horny
And couldnt wait to lose my virginity
I thought waiting for a good guy was corny
And didnt listen to anything the grown ups told me

Now I am living with herpes
And I suffer with painful sores
So I want you to listen
To the advice I am giving
You only have one vagina so take care of yours

Dont have sex until you both go for blood tests
Dont be alone with a boy when he drinks
Use birth control so you dont get pregnant
When you get a strange email, dont click on the links
Dont email naked pictures of yourself to your boyfriend
Or make a sex tape or get a tattoo
Make sure you remember these things because
These are things you shouldnt do



Junk Food Junkie
I see you eatin at a fast food joint in town
From a distance I see you wolf that burger down
And Im wondering whos gonna tell you what youre doing wrong
Heres a song
Heres a song

That burger has twelve hundred calories
You increased it when you added extra cheese
And those French fries
And milkshake
Are gonna clog up all your arteries
Arteries

you need to change your diet
its not so hard once you try it

Dont Be a Junk Food Junkie
Or youll just start looking chunky
All those snacks you eat are just no good for you
Dont be a Junk Food Junkie
Eat three square meals a day and dont eat in-between
So you can stay healthy

Avacodos are very good for you
And you can make them taste like any other food
Like chocolate pudding
And everyone loves guacamole
Even me
Even me

Instead of fried food, try roasted, boiled or baked
Have fruit and yogurt instead of ice cream and cake
Instead of jellies
And candies
Have a bowl of cherries, plums or grapes



Its Okay to say Merry Christmas
Its OK to say Merry Christmas
Its boring to say Happy Holidays
Dont be such a Scrooge
You should be in a good mood
You dont have to be religious
To enjoy our Christmas food

You dont have to roll your eyes at Santa
Or preach to us about hypocrisy
Dont make such a fuss
Well still do what we must
Sing Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas

Snow is falling
Its time to be optimistic
No need for name calling
Or being antagonistic

Its OK to say Merry Christmas
Its boring to say Happy Holidays
Buddhist, Sikh or Jew
Confucius might ring true
You can say Namaste
And then say Merry Christmas Too!

Its beautiful to hug a tree on earth day
And Tao te Ching might help you find the way
Whatever faith you trust
Theyre all OK with us
So Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas

Heres a message for all you atheists
Maybe theres nothing after this
But we love Santa Claus
We love Santa Claus
And exchanging gifts

Its okay if you believe in science
and when we die we all will turn to dust
You might think were nuts
But thats alright with us
So Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas



BULLIES

We don't want you bullies
Bullies go away
Bullies go away
Or we'll punch you in the face

You don't like me 'cause I'm quiet
You don't like me 'cause I'm gay
You don't like my glasses
You don't like my race
You say I'm not cool
But I say you're cruel bully

You don't like the clothes I wear
You don't like what I believe
You wanna tell me what to buy
You wanna tell me who to be
You don't wanna be seen with me
You're just mean bully

Get away from me
'cause we don't want you bullies
you best be afraid of me
'cause we don't want you bullies
You better not mess with me
'cause we don't want you bullies
LadyBugs sing with me


You make fun of me on twitter
You make fun of me in school
You make fun of where I live
You make fun of what I do
You call me retard
But you're not so smart bully

You pick on my religion
You joke about my size
You joke about my family
You joke about my height
You think I'm a prude
Well I think you're rude bully



The Creepy Man
You went to the mall and bought a cute minidress
Mom says its too short but you want the boys to be impressed
but theres something every girl should know when all the boys are looking at you
there are some creepy grown men who will be looking at you too

if you dont believe me
just ask Chris Hansen from Dateline NBC

stay away from the creepy man he has no friends
hes supposed to stay five hundred yards away from children
dont get in his car or it will be the end of you
stay away from the creepy man

he might be the gym teacher at your school
he might be the fat man in the Speedo who hangs out at the swimming pool
or you might get a friend on FaceBook who wants to chat with you a while
til you find out its just a forty two year old pedophile

hell try to send you an email
he belongs in jail

So dont get mad because you cant get
a string bikini or a sexy outfit
cause nothings sadder than a mommy who is upset
because her baby was abducted



Puppies
I remember when Mom took me to the ASPCA
we adopted Lucy and we brought her home that day
she was a pretty dog with brown and yellow fur
when I got home from school all I did was play with her

then one day my neighbors dog Gus came in the yard
he jumped around with Lucy playing like a happy dog
until he got stuck behind Lucys tail and
Daddy had to splash them with cold water from a pail

Mommy looked at Daddy and got mad and shook her head
thats when Mommy said

Now Lucys gonna have puppies, puppies, puppies
Pretty soon well have puppies, puppies, puppies
we turned the other way now we have puppies on the way

Lucy had five puppies and we gave them all away
Then Daddy took Lucy to the doctor to get spayed
Lucy didnt play the same as she did before
She wasnt very interested in Gus anymore

Daddy looked at Lucy and scratched her on the head
Thats when Daddy said

Now you cant have anymore puppies, puppies, puppies
There will be no more puppies, puppies, puppies
Lucy got spayed now no more puppies on the way

One night I was laying in my bed counting sheep
I could hear Mommy and Daddy and they were not asleep
They were making noise and sounded really happy
They were laughing and bouncing and I could hear them clapping

Pretty soon I noticed Mommys tummy getting bigger
She said that I was gonna have a brother or a sister
I asked her how the baby got inside her tummy
Then Daddy turned red and started acting funny

Mommy looked at Daddy and laughed and shook her head
Thats when Mommy said

Remember when Lucy had puppies, puppies, puppies
Gus and Lucy had puppies, puppies, puppies
Mommy and Daddy like to play like Gus and Lucy did that day
now theres a baby on the way



Litterbugs
Woke up at six oclock in the morning
Im yawning
walk to the park so I can go skateboarding
when I feel something stickin to my shoe
I just stepped in dog poop
some dog owner didnt scoop
now that aint cool
so I wipe my shoe off in the grass
and walk over to the skateboard path
where all I see is broken glass
somebody had a party here
where some beer bottles got smashed up
cause people didnt pick their trash up
have some class just
Dont be a litterbug man
Throw your garbage in the garbage can

Were ladybugs were not litterbugs
Were ladybugs were not litterbugs
Were ladybugs were not litterbugs
Were ladybugs were not litterbugs

now Im driving with my friends to the movies
behind an SUV
the driver rolls the window down
I cant believe what I see
when out of the window comes a bag
I see a splash
a milkshake and an empty hamburger wrap
come flying onto my windshield
and blow over to the baseball field
well thats not a happy meal
it only takes a minute to park
and get out the car
the trash bins not too far
you be smart
just dont be a litterbug man
throw your garbage in the garbage can


now Im standing next to somebody whos smoking
Im choking
its the twenty first century dude you must be joking
dont you know that poisons just a cancer stick
thats gonna make you sick
and turn your lungs into bricks
he throws it on the ground and walks away
I said hey
that stogies still lit youll start a fire that way
we all have a second to spare
and be aware
like Smokey the Bear
show you care just
Dont be a litterbug dude
put out that cigarette dont be rude



Safety First
In the summertime, we all like to have fun
we like to to go the beach and lay in the sun
but too much sun will give you melanoma
and soon well all be sayin it was nice to know ya
from UV Rays your skin needs protection
and dont think dark skin is an exception
The Ladybugs want you to know the truth
African Americans can get skin cancer too

LISTEN
umbrellas, tee shirts, hats are best
sunblock with forty five SPF
dont wait until your laid to rest
Safety first, Safety first
in the sun, number one should be
safety first Safety first, Safety first
ba ba ba ba ba Safety First

when its hot outside, its nice to go for a swim
we all go to the ocean and jump right in
but theres something that you all should know
you can get sucked in by the undertow
or a really strong current called a riptide
and youll need someone there to save your life
The Ladybugs want you to know the truth
Appreciate the job that the lifeguards do

WATCH OUT
Before you go in the ocean be aware
make sure theres a lifeguard in the lifeguard chair
cause you might drown if theres no one there

Safety first, Safety first
when youre wet dont forget about
Safety first Safety first, Safety first
ba ba ba ba ba Safety First

everyone likes a little romance
its fun to fall in love, and flirt and dance
but when you think youre ready to go all the way
you have to make sure that you dont get AIDS
or another sexually transmitted disease
like herpes, gonorrhea or HPV
The Ladybugs want you to be prepared for sex
so ask your sweetheart to get a blood test

STOP!
Before you start kissin listen please
Ask your Mom about condoms and STDs
its hard to fall in love when you have a disease

Safety first, Safety first
before you touch, learn much about
Safety first Safety first, Safety first
ba ba ba ba ba Safety First



Daddy, Please Dont Drink and Drive
I know it must have hurt
when you got fired from work
You miss your friends still there
I know it isnt fair
Now you want to escape
you want to make it go away
and now you drink a lot
but youre the only Dad Ive got

you know I dont mind
if you have a glass of wine
once in a while

Daddy, please dont drink and drive
I want you to stay alive
please read me a book tonight
instead of going to the bar please
dont make mommy hide your car keys
Shell be upset if you get arrested for DWI
Daddy, please dont drink and drive

I was sad on my birthday
when you fell down on my cake
my friends thought you were playing games
but I knew you were drunk again

Mom takes me to Grandmas place
cause she needs to get away
but I know youre by yourself
and I wish you would get some help

I know grown ups have a lot of stress
but you dont have to turn your life into a mess
and make everyone depressed

Daddy, please dont drink and drive
I want you to stay alive
please read me a book tonight



Ritalin is a Gateway Drug
I had a friend in my math class who wouldnt shut up it
got to a point where he became too disruptive
the teacher took him to the school nurse where he stood before her
while she diagnosed him with attention deficit disorder

he couldnt come back to school til he went to a physician
and started taking a little pill that they call Ritalin
he used to draw portraits now theyre all stick figures
first it destroys your brain, then it destroys your liver

I know it isnt fair when grownups just dont care so you better beware

Be cool
pay attention in school
try not to move
stop your twitching
or youll end up on prescriptions
like Ritalin
its a gateway drug

Now my friends in college and wouldnt you know it
he doesnt take Ritalin anymore but he didnt outgrow it
he just moved on to other psychostimulants
first its caffeine, then cocaine and methamphetamines

So you should be on your best behavior for all your teachers
cause grownups can be very mysterious creatures
they think youre adorable when they can persuade you
but if you rub them the wrong way, they want to sedate you

I know it isnt fair when grownups just dont care so you better beware



Special Kids
Theres a class in my school
for kids that are different
Nicholas cant move
and Mindy wears a helmet

My teacher says not to laugh
or make fun of them
but she gets nervous and looks away
when shes in front of them

Theyre the special kids
Theyre the special kids
Theyre not like me and you
but they deserve to be loved too
Theyre the special kids

When Im in the lunch room
I see them sitting there
Paul breathes through a tube
and Jays in a wheelchair

some of them have moms and dads
and live in a house like me
some of them live at the hospital
cause they have no family

Sometimes I say hi
to let them know I see them
or sometimes I just smile
so they know that we can be friends
I wonder if they watch cartoons
in the morning on Saturday
or take a nap in the afternoon
or go out in the yard and play



Dial Nine One One in an Emergency
Grandma was standing by the door waiting for the mailman
next thing I know shes on the floor she hit her head on the trash can
I tried to shake her but she wasnt breathing
couldnt wake her CPR is what she needed
If I make a mistake Grandma doesnt stand a chance

Then I remembered good advice that Grandma gave me
In times of crisis dont think twice when theres someone who needs saving
There is something we can do thats really easy
Just memorize these three numbers when youre needing
a police officer, fireman or ambulance
dial Nine One One

In an emergency, dial Nine One One
then stay on the phone until the ambulance comes
youll be a hero if you save someone
in an emergency dial Nine One One

My Dad decided to cook rice cause Mom was too tired
He was trying to be nice but now the kitchens on fire
So he threw some water on the stove and
That was so dumb cause that made the fire grow then
those three numbers popped into my mind
dial Nine One One

In an emergency, dial Nine One One
then wait outside until the fire truck comes
youll be a hero if you save someone
in an emergency dial Nine One One

when theres a burglary theres a breakin. all your stuffs been taken
a car crash down your street I heard a crash. Someones car got smashed
when someone almost drowns in a pool, in a bath tub, even in a hot tub
pick up the phone right now
dial Nine One One

In an emergency, dial Nine One One
then stay on the phone til the police men come
youll be a hero if you save someone
so in an emergency dial Nine One One

In an emergency, dial Nine One One
then keep your cool just like a LadyBug
youll be a hero if you save someone
so in an emergency dial Nine One One



Sugar is Poison
its hiding
inside of all the foods that you crave
but your sweet tooth
makes you eat food that will put you in an early grave
You will soon be overweight
If you eat too many carbohydrates

Sugar is Poison
Its gonna make your teeth fall out
Sugar is Poison
Better stop drinking soda now
Candy, cookies and bubble gum
Ice cream, cake and sticky buns
Dont eat them cause they’re no good for you
Sugar is Poison

You dont need it
but youre feeding your addiction to that sweet, sweet taste
now youre bloated
cause youre loaded with toxic impacted waste
You can improve your carbon footprint
if you reduce the calories you take in

some call it corn syrup
others call it sugar cane
its hiding in dried fruit and
fruit juice from concentrate
words ending with o s e
like glucose and lactose
sucrose and dextrose
insulin overdose



Dont Commit Suicide
There once was a boy named Tyler
who was being bullied in college
until one day he had enough
and jumped off the George Washington Bridge
now hes a memory
instead of what he could be

There one was a girl named Megan
she was being bullied on her MySpace page
someone wrote mean things about her
so she hanged herself one day
now shes a memory
instead of what she could be

Suicide is not the answer
Suicide is really bad
Suicide is worse than cancer
Suicide will make your parents sad
Dont commit Suicide

When you feel like youre all alone
and you just want to end it all
picture your Mom and Dad crying
and standing by your friends at your funeral
Dont be a memory
instead of what you could be

Right now you just want to die
but youre too young to know
someday soon youll realize
bullies are all ass holes
