Just Call Me, Maxi. (vocal by Mara Lynn Brown)

I've been so many people,
Like an actress taking cues.
I've read my lines and looked
the part made all the proper moves.
Now I have found a whole, new world.
It's been there all the time.
I can finally be myself with a style.
That's really mine.
Here I am feelin' free.
No one else I'd rather be.
I'm as fresh and unique as my name.
They call me, Maxi, Just Call Me , Maxi.
Sometimes I'm shy, sometimes I'm wild.
Call me woman. Call me child.
I'm ev'rything that a woman wants to be.
Just Call Me, Maxi.
They call me, Maxi. Just Call Me, Maxi.
See me smiling, catch me frown.
I'm so worldly, or such a clown.
I can be refreshingly so unrestrained.
Just Call Me, Maxi, Just Call Me, Maxi.
I'm outrageous, I'm the most,
They call my name from coast to coast.
Just Call Me, Maxi. Just Call Me, Maxi.
Just Call Me, Maxi. Just Call Me, Maxi.
