lyrics

The other day I got to thinking about all the amazing women I went to college with

I thought about Hannah, she sang like a bird
When she opened up for Neal McCoy, we hung on every word
With Broadway and New York City firmly in her sights
We were sure we'd see her name in lights

But since our graduation I haven't heard a word
Whatever happened to her

She got married, settled down
Didn't even try, just moved back to her hometown
Met a guy, had some kids
Might not know what feminism/who Ruth Bader Ginsburg is
Unlimited potential, dead and buried
She lives in Duluth and she got married

I thought about Maria, whose charm was unsurpassed
She quickly became the president of our little freshman class
She'd win in a landslide for anything for which she ran
And someday we'd see her smiling face lighting up CSPAN

But since our graduation I haven't heard a word
Whatever happened to her

She got married, settled down
Didn't even try, just moved back to her hometown
Met a guy, had some kids
Might not know what feminism/who Ruth Bader Ginsburg is
Unlimited potential, dead and buried
She lives in Topeka and she got married

What good is talent if you don't pursue it
What good is beauty if you don't know how to use it
What good's a chance if you're just going to refuse it
What good's domestic life if you didn't choose it

For each of these women, there were hundreds more
Stars I thought were rising but were just finding the door
They were all beautiful and talented and promising and straight
And I was just too gay to procreate

She got married, settled down
Didn't even try, just moved back to her hometown
Met a guy, had some kids
Might not know what feminism/who Ruth Bader Ginsburg is
Unlimited potential, dead and buried
She lives in Des Moines
What is in Des Moines
She lives in Des Moines and she got married
