Little Miss Know​-​it​-​All

about

As soon as I heard Little Miss Know It All I thought of this pissed off kitten we used to have when I was a little girl. Affectionately known as 'Boots' because of her ginger coat and white paws, she was sweet and adorable and ridiculously fluffy, but you wouldn't want to cross her. Ever.
One time I was sitting on the steps by our front door, watching her bounce her way towards me the way kittens do. She bounded passed the full length mirror that covered the coat closet and her reflection scared her. But instead of going after the mirror, she turned on me! I was just an innocent bystander, but no one was safe when her pride was hurt. Ears back and claws out, she came at me swinging as though I was the culprit. Her eyes flashed the most emerald green and her orange fur seemed to buzz with electricity. What a spitfire! When she was done attacking me she spent most of the rest of the day hiding under the piano.  She knew she had been wrong, and she knew I knew. But she couldn't bring herself to make amends. Boots wasn't big on admitting she was wrong. 
I have been there. I've been that kitten who lashes out and then has to hide under the piano out of shame. It takes a lot of guts to own up to yourself and eat some humble pie. This line sums it up perfectly: "You're just a little girl frightened in the dark, you're just a little girl afraid to face your heart." 
I'm still working on it too.

lyrics

Little miss know it all
how did you’re world get so small
watching what i spent
keepin track of every cent
but you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
little miss know it all
you never take my calls
no need to be afraid
i won’t change the plans you made
but you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
Your just a lonely girl, live inside the lines
Sound like a metronome, you keep perfect time
how could it be, oh silly me
but you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
little miss know it all
can’t wait to see you fall
back into my arms
back where you belong
but you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
every now and then you’ve got to take some kind advice
would it really hurt so bad to just say something nice
You can’t be free
Systematically
but you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
Oh my, it must be nice
to see the world through perfect eyes
how i wish that i were you
Oh my, it must be nice
to have the world to criticize
don’t you wish that it was true
little miss know it all
you could walk before u crawled
you’re so confident
you should run for president
but you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
You’re just a little girl, frightened in the dark
you’re just a little girl, afraid to face your heart
but it’s plain to see
for everyone but me
that you’re right and i’m wrong
know it all
