As noted on Wikipedia:

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Daya had this to say about “Sit Still, Look Pretty”:

“It’s about being a girl that goes after her own dreams and really fights for what she wants, and not letting anyone get in the way of that. It’s important for young girls to know that they don’t have to act a certain way or depend on someone for happiness. They can find all of that within themselves.”

In an interview with Idolator, Daya also said:

“I think it’s just about not being an accessory for someone else. Just having your own dreams and goals. Going after them and not having to always try to please someone.”

Lyrics to ‘Sit Still, Look Pretty’ by Daya


”Sit Still, Look Pretty” | Daya


Could dress up
To get love
But guess what?
I’m never gonna be that girl
Who’s living in a Barbie world

Could wake up
And make up
And play dumb
Pretending that I need a boy
Who’s gonna treat me like a toy


I know the other girlies wanna wear expensive things
Like diamond rings
But I don’t wanna be the puppet that you’re playing on a string
This queen don’t need a king


Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your nine to five
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty


Mister Right could be nice for one night
But then he wanna take control
And I would rather fly solo


Then Snow White
She did it right
In her life
Had seven men to do the chores
‘Cause that’s not what a lady’s for


The only thing a boy’s gonna give a girl for free’s captivity
And I might love me some vanilla but I’m not that sugar sweet
Call me HBIC


Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be, because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your nine to five
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be, ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty


Sure, I’m a pretty girl
Up in a pretty world
But they say pretty hurts
And I don’t wanna sit still
I’m a pretty girl
Up in a pretty world
But no, I won’t sit still, look pretty


Sure, I’m a pretty girl
Up in a pretty world
But they say pretty hurts
And I don’t wanna sit still
I’m a pretty girl
Up in a pretty world
But no, I won’t sit still, look pretty


Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your nine to five
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still look pretty


Oh, I don’t know what you’ve been told
But this gal right here’s gonna rule the world
Yeah, that is where I’m gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your nine to five
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I’m never gonna be ’cause I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty


Sit still, look pretty
Sit still, look pretty
Sit still, look pretty
Sit still, look pretty
