When I was just a little girl I wondered what I'd become.When I was in the first grade I thought I'd be a nun.

Two weeks into catholic school I knew that would be no fun.
All the little girls around me were going to marry, teach or nurse. I thought to myself could there be anything worse?
So when the sister asked me what will you be when you grow up? I said I'll be a fireman, and drive a big red truck!
She said now there's a notion that I had better give up. She said that young ladies could never drive a truck.
Of course the sister told my mother,that girls spirit you'll have to break. Cause mark my words if you don't you'll be making a big mistake.
I was the first girl in the family to be born in 25 years. What did they expect of me to be in dresses, and in tears?
Oh no not me. Not on your life. I held my own with the best, and when I grow up I'll drive that truck, and to hell with all the rest!
Well in the 1960's no one heard of women's liberation, but I have a feeling in the back of my mind I was planning that celebration.
Well,I showed them all. I drove that truck although it wasin't red. I even ran some heavy equiptment, and damn near wound up dead.
Some may say I'm stubborn, others just plain dumb,but you know I got to drive that truck, and I sure as hell ain't no nun!
