I wanted lace, I wanted pearls
To be a princess like the other girls
But life came hard to my front door
And I grew up tryin' to even up the score

Tough; I ain't never been nothin' but tough
All my edges have always been rough
But Jesus loves me anyway; oh backbone,
There ain't nothin' wrong with a woman that got a little backbone
You just wait 'till you taste her kind of love

You want a shy little thing
A pretty little high-heeled thing
Gonna cry if I don't polish up
Tough

The way I see it, the hand of Fate
Did me a favor, with the cards he dealt my way
Found out real fast life is a game
You're out real quick if you don't know how to play

Tough; I ain't never been nothin' but tough
All my edges have always been rough
But Jesus loves me anyway; oh backbone,
There ain't nothin' wrong with a woman that got a little backbone
You just wait -till you taste her kind of love

You want a shy little thing
A pretty little high-heeled thing
Gonna cry if I don't polish up

I'll be serious, you ain't fooled me much
You're still hangin' 'round so you can try your luck

With tough; I ain't never been nothin' but tough
All my edges have always been rough

You want a shy little thing
A pretty little high-heeled thing
Gonna cry if I don't polish up

You know what I gotta say about that is tough
