Of Montreal - It's Different For Girls Lyrics




It's different for girls
They've got sensitive language
They've built miles of defenses
They're not numb by impression
It's different for girls
From when they are children
They're depersonalized
Aggressively objectified

They want to make a scene
They want to be adored
And then they want to be left alone
When they get bored
With that, it's different for girls
They are mercurial creatures
Not a masculine dissonance
Or sexual currency

Though some of them are demons, all of them are gods
Though some demons are women
For every one psycho bitch, there's 10,000 aggro pricks
It's different for girls

It's different for girls
They don't spit on the street
They don't piss on the seat
They don't have to size up
Every person they meet
Or create an elite
Or poison the game
So no one else can compete

They are chaos and mystery
And they like to combine them
Sometimes they act crazy
But that doesn't define them
It's different for girls
They're not expected to fight
They're expected to sit
And take some lesser man's shit

Though it don't feel right
No, it don't feel right

Though some women are demons, all of them are gods
Though some demons are women
For every one psycho chick, there's 10,000 hateful pricks
It's different
It's different
It's different

Yeah, it's different for girls
It's different for girls

  12. 2manynegativewaves

    Gaius Balter in drag at a Ball..... did not expect this. (actually,bloody genius,but, yes,girls piss on the seat.)

  13. Bonita Bromeliads

    This actually sounds like a Ween song. especially the interlude. Hail boognish.

  14. smol mean trans wife

    An entire song that's just the instrumentals in the beginning

  15. H. S. K.

    stupid and disgusting music. hate it so much:)

  16. Georgie Davies

    I'm a new, INSTANT fan!!

  17. Jackson Fell

    See: LGBT used as a paper thin aesthetic

  18. Scoot's Canoe

    Augh I really like this song, this and 'I'm just a girl' by No Doubt really motivate me.

  19. Emily Iannielli

    Mind blowing and very cool

  20. Vincent Harris

    Lmao, the intentional irony is perfect

  21. Graceless Night

    Kevin’s makeup on point too ❤️

  22. Maureen O

    Love Of Montreal. Kevin has a daughter. #metoo movement is bullshit. Hillary Clinton is evil. What a bunch of feminazis. Hypocrisy

  23. ToxicWaste OfSpace

    Kevin Barnes is so unapologetically gender fluid it fills my soul with love

    John RossStar

    @vespirs
    Any surgery is quite risky. I myself live with moderate back pain. That's OK - i'm used to it. I could possibly get relief from surgery but because ALL surgery creates scar tissue that can create it's own problems, i am content to make do with stretching and exercise. Plus the doctor might screw up and do more damage than good. It happens all the time.
    Now here's a person with most likely, perfectly good genitals yet persistent identity issues who you recommend making hamburger out of their flesh. The most sensitive part of their body is now a numb bundle of scar tissue.
    You and your ilk are from your father the devil whose main goal is maximum human suffering and the breakdown of society.
    You're a patsy - just another 'useful idiot' used to further satan's agenda.

    vespirs

    John RossStar I hope u have a nice day u seem very down my guy. maybe I could ask satan to convert you into hellspawn as well. Maybe you won’t be such a prick then

    TheRandomhobo123

    John RossStar “Satan’s agenda” LMAO

    Moon Man

    fuck off and die

  24. gold3n rul3

    this is awesome

  25. Kevin Schultz

    Man, I wish I knew what all girls are like enough to minimize them by just naming "facts" about them while wearing a wig and dress. Seriously, this song is obnoxiously ignorant and pretentious. Y'all wanna hear a song by a fella that is actually feminist, check out Womyn by Heems. It doesn't actually try to define women, it makes a joke of the fact that men try to define them. Simmer your balls, Of Montreal is pretense compressed into a disc.

    It's different for girls
    They've got sensitive language
    They've built miles of defenses
    They're not numbed by oppression

    It's different for girls
    From when they are children, they're depersonalized
    Aggressively objectified
    They want to make a scene
    They want to be adored
    And then they want to be left alone when they get bored with that

    It's different for girls
    They are mercurial creatures, not a masculine dissonance
    Or sexual currency


    Though some of them are demons, all of them are gods
    Though some demons are women
    For every one psycho bitch, there's ten thousand aggro pricks
    It's different for girls

    It's different for girls
    They don't spit on the streets
    They don't piss on the seat
    They don't have to size up every person they meet
    Or create an elite
    Or poison the game so no one else can compete
    They like chaos and mystery
    And they like to combine them
    Sometimes they act crazy
    But that doesn't define them

    It's different for girls
    They're not expected to fight
    They're expected to sit and take some lesser man's shit
    Though it don't feel right
    No, it don't feel right

    Though some women are demons, all of them are god
    Though some demons are women
    For every one psycho chick, there's ten thousand hateful pricks


    It's different
    It's different
    It's different

  36. Lunibruniful

    Hmm. Interesting.

  37. Angus Mac

    Thank you of Montreal for standing up for freedom, justice and equality by refusing to play Apartheid Israel.

  38. sariel singer

    really boring

  39. plexi les paul

    What kind of music is this? Puke

  40. OsightblinderO

    a lesbianified version of the soul train videos..thanks?

  41. scouserfourteen

    Absolutely, categorically, one of THE worst songs and videos I have ever had the misfortune to stumble across.

  42. Evan Wenger

    Honestly I'm surprised that this wasn't a bigger breakout hit. Of Montreal has always been successful - but this song is so fresh, so relevant, and so extremely catchy and funky I was expecting it to really explode and reach a wider audience.

  43. Isolde E-G

    This song gives me shivers bc I LOVE IT SO MUCH

  44. Natalie Cosman

    just the compassion on kevins face when giving the child the trophy was just adorable yes it could have been acting but still, I found that so cute!!! <3

  45. Kokoa 404

    I'm seriously hoping this is not a sjw feminist song or stuff like that, I liked the song obviously as a woman I like being portrayed as a magical being once in a while lol who doesn't? But I like to leave it like that, a simple song, not feminist anthem bullshit, besides that, I still love of montreal

  46. Catherine Minn

    Ok but why does he remind me of Effie trinket

  47. j m

    This is so ridiculous but I still really like this song for some reason

  48. Quail Rabbits

    I interpretted the meaning of the song to be along the lines of: its better to be female than male and more of an ode to the generalizations and way women think. Yet women are still marginalized by the ever-present patriarchal force. The singer and party is ultimately celebrating what it would be like to live in a world void of the masculine confines of society. AKA This is a feminist song.

  49. Nemesis

    Love this! Every one is so beautiful in this vid. It is different for biological women, men (and sadly some women) put us through a specific kind of hell. And we are gods because we produce and feed human life from our bodies - most men for centuries and today hate us because of this and want to control our power of life giving so they can feel like gods.

  50. usedfuzzbox

    I truly imagine that this is what every single day is like if you are of Montreal......

  51. eric scott

    the kids are alright, this video makes me think that we're all going in a good direction

  52. Tadami

    this was waaaaay too gay for me. And you can guarantee that girl is becoming a lesbian

  53. Stephanie Loggins

    This gives me anxiety

  54. ewoknroll

    It's different for girls, they can wear makeup and hack their skirts up to further their careers while men have to work harder to achieve their goals, yeah it's different for girls, they bring up a non existent wage gap and can sleep with any guy they want with the snap of a finger then complain that guys have it easy yeah it's different for girls.

    Lilith ComputerGod

    incels will see mediocre, sleazy, sex predator straight men holding power over all of our society's most important institutions and be like "society is misandrist now because women can sleep their way to the top"

  55. Stranded73

    I love everyone in this video!

  56. Bridget S.

    this guy has the loveliest smile. starts smiling towards the end of the song and it's just .... awwww.

  57. Cue The Lights

    this is peak feminism and its not bad

  58. Gerald

    YEEESSS!!!!

  59. Ashlee Viverette

    This video looks like a place where there is total acceptance and no judgement just fun times and good music.

  60. Duc Pham

    Beautiful

  61. JozziBug

    My new anthem! ❤ wonderful

  62. Lena LaMastra

    This comment is long overdue but shout out to Salazar (Kevin's felt brooch)

  63. exdunn

    This is such a cucked song but damn its catchy

  64. KonBo

    This song becomes much better if you consider lyrics as intentionally sarcastic.

  65. Alexs Nasty

    People new here, don't scroll down, it's filled with sexist and dumb people whose reasoning doesn't go beyond a 5th grader's mind, just enjoy the music ❤

  66. Alexis

    This song fucking rocks-- everyone seriously needs to stop overanalyzing it. It's generally fairly accurate talking about girls, and it's got such a great beat. STOP THINKING AND ENJOY IT!!

  67. Xanna Dez

    Even better live. Love you guys <3

  68. Mistur Fixit

    Good song, but I'm not sure if these lyrics are a joke or not. You've got a line critical of the objectification of women, meanwhile you've unironically written a song objectifying women as mythical creatures. With few exceptions, most girls are people. And if I were a girl I think I'd be a little insulted by this blatant pandering.

  69. Sthefany LV

    That kid dances a lot better than me.

  70. Oprah Winfrey

    I wonder if that's Kevin's daughter

  71. RiskyJinjo11

    Did the kid from Undertale win that trophy?

  72. Yashiro Isana

    Am I the only one that would love to be in this video? Lol

  73. Patrick Cу

    And, quit making pointless funny remarks trying to uplift your ego from getting "most likes". That's overrated. Just comment something that will improve society. Egotistical brattism just makes you look rotten, in my honesty.

  74. John Erkman

    Not A Joe Jackson cover ☹️

    Sweet though😎

  75. Rennee Knowles

    I love this song and I'm a gallllllll!!!!

  76. Laura Beck

    I saw them in Philly Mr. Barnes walked right past me but I was too high to realize I was bmed

  77. Jeff Smith

    It sounds like "National Anthem" by Radiohead on a synth....

  78. filbo

    it's DIFFERENT for girls

  79. Stefanie Newell

    Time to collab with Kathleen Hanna! (well, it's BEEN time)!

  80. Antonio Nakic

    I'm pretty sure the lyrics are satire. Love the song.

  81. Croissant

    I FUCKING LOVE THIS SHITTTTT YESSSS OMG

  82. Creature

    3:21 give me that kids pants man

  83. Scott Young

    My current fav song. Never would have heard it without that DJ Midnightt played it a few months ago on her "Garden of Good and Evil" radio show, WQFS in Greensboro, the Guilford College Radio Station. It gets air about once every two weeks here despite our towns' provincial nature. A Really Great Song!!

  84. diego serra

    found these guys through gay parade. I like their beatle, beach boy side better than their flamboyant dream pop stuff. they have so many beautifull melodys and sounds in their old stuff and I feel it's missing all those great elements in the new stuff. I hope they incorporate those 2 elements and bring me the next pet sounds

  85. Wild Scientist

    I thought I couldn't love Kevin Barnes more until I saw/heard this track. THANK YOU FOR SAYING THE TRUTH!!!!!!!

    Wild Scientist

    I'm not a believer in marriage, but I would marry you in a heartbeat. Ultimate Power Couple changing the world with our individuality and compassion for all!

  86. Martha Spizziri

    Is it just me, or did they change the edit since they first uploaded it? I swear a few of the clips of people dancing have been switched for new ones with different people.

  87. androy96

    I wonder what his daughter thinks of this stuff?

  88. Scott Young

    You can just about bet that boy at the end is his son

  89. Flash doidaum

    is so awssome and badass is so FUCKING GOOD THIS MUSIC(sorry but i from brazil)

  90. Croissant

    I LOVE THISSSSSSS

  91. Paul Murray

    Kevin Barnes reminds me of the Richard Simmons of rock-n- roll!

  92. Lo Ruff

    i wanna hug him

  93. I am Ghostie

    What have I stumbled onto....what....the hell. It's....good.

  94. vineofthedead

    what is going on? my friend was gonna see them tonight and I'm like hmm let's look this band up..... nope just nope. musically not horrible but subject matter.... what?? smh

    Splitsville

    Stephen Inness Their other 8-9+ albums are nothing like this

  95. Amber Phillips

    BLESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  96. donaldmcdonald

    lol at all the people who think this is tounge in cheek or has a different meaning or "some joke" when this is like one of the most straight forward songs they've ever written. your favorite band is feminist get over it

    Mia Cucchiara

    @Turret Studios I meant the actual song on the album of the same title. Sorry.

    Mia Cucchiara

    @Arcin 👌

    Adrienne White

    y’all really read into things too much. there’s an interview with Kevin where he literally says this song was inspired a lot by having a daughter and being forced to see how sexist and fucked up the world really is for women. maybe some lines seem “stereotypical” to you but Kevin’s lyricism is flashy and over-the-top.... always. i think the general message of the song is clear, and wholesome, and it’s Kevin doing his best to be an ally. i personally think he’s doing a great job at that, i definitely don’t get the criticism.

    Benjamin Lee

    Look at all these straight white guys with a hot take on how a song celebrating femininity is sexist

    Cassafinn

    @Number 9 An excerpt from an interview:

    The song’s lyrics, also written in Paris, establish a sense of distance between the narrator and what he’s describing (Barnes told me upfront that he wanted to discuss this particular track because, “a lot of the other ones are very personal”). The themes of “it’s different for girls” are loosely divided into two verses: the first lays out a series of “academic” observations (“they’re depersonalized / aggressively objectified”) while the second takes a more whimsical approach, riddled with silly inaccuracies. As we talk, however, it becomes clear that these armchair observations were in fact shaped by personal, and often frightening, experiences.

    That party looks fun as hell
