“Who Run the World” by Beyonce

Lyrics we love:

Who run the world? Girls!

“I am Woman” by Helen Reddy, as seen on Sex and the City

Lyrics we love:

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back and pretend
'cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna keep me down again

“I Do Not Hook Up” by Kelly Clarkson

Lyrics we love:

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow
So if you want me
I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand
And your heart on your sleeve

“Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys

Lyrics we love:

Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she's burning it down
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she's not backing down

 “King of Anything” by Sara Bareilles

Lyrics we love:

I hate to break it to you, babe
But I'm not drowning
There's no one here to save

“F*ckin' Perfect” by Pink

Lyrics we love:

Don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than, less than perfect.
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing
You are perfect to me.

"Perfect Day" by Hoku

Lyrics we love:

Perfect day,
Nothing's standing in my way
On this perfect day,
Nothing can go wrong

 

“Born this Way” by Lady Gaga

Lyrics we love:

I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby
I was born this way
Don't hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you're set


“Firework” by Katy Perry

Lyrics we love:

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July
'Cause, baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth

 

“Pretty Girl Rock” by Keri Hilson

Lyrics we love:

Get yourself together don't hate (don't do it),
Jealous is the ugliest trait (ohh, don't do it)
I can talk about it cause I know that I'm pretty
If you know it too then ladies sing it with me

“Beautiful” by Christina Aguilera

Lyrics we love:

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way

“Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato

Lyrics we love:

Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper

 

“Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield

Lyrics we love:

No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

 

“Independent Woman Part 1” by Destiny's Child

Lyrics we love:

Tell me how you feel about this 
Try to control me boy you get dismissed 
Pay my own fun, oh and I pay my own bills 
Always 50/50 in relationships
