Be a Woman who Cuts Through Red Tape

by on Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Dictionary.com defines Red Tape as: “excessive formality and routine required before official action can be taken.” I was thinking about red tape as I was listening to the Cake song “Short Skirt, Long Jacket”. It’s an incredibly upbeat, fun song. And the lyrics are great. The color red is inspiring to me because it’s such a bold, powerful color. Like WHAZZOM – I’m here, I’ve ARRIVED! Wearing red items can help you feel confident, weird as that might sound. And I know I say some PRETTY weird things sometimes, but this I’m serious about! So get on board, and wear some red.

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what’s best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who used a machette to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass
