The first lady of the United States, Mrs. Michelle Obama is no stranger to letting her hair down for the sake of children. She’s also no stranger to getting on the mic and laying down some bars. However, this time instead of letting her hair down and getting on the mic, she has enlisted the help of some big-time ladies to record a kick-butt inspirational song to promote the education of girls everywhere. The name of the song is “This Is For My Girls.”

Michelle Obama is for #62MillionGirls. Are you? http://aol.it/1M5BWH2

Diane Warren has written several songs that have gone on to win Grammy Awards including “Because You Loved Me” sung by Celine Dion, as well as “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” sung by Aerosmith.

Here are the lyrics:

This is for my girls
All around the world
This is for my girls

There’s beauty in your soul
That’s what makes you beautiful
Don’t let nobody ever make you doubt it
Your heart is free and strong
That’s what keeps you keepin’ on
Can’t keep you down,
There ain’t no doubt about it
Don’t forget it’s all about respect
Nothing less will do
Remember it’s your life,
Live it any way you like
Cuz you know you got the right to

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don’t take no s**t from nobody

This is for my girls
Stand up and be heard
This is for my ladies, my sisters, all over
This is for my girls

You’re someone who can be
Soft as silk, but strong as steel
Don’t shy away from showing what you’re made of
This world is yours to take
You can bend, but you won’t break
You got no fear, ain’t nothin’ you’re afraid of
Don’t forget it’s all about respect
Nothing less will do
Push negativity aside
Let em see how bright you shine
Cuz you know that it’s your time to

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don’t take no s**t from nobody

This is for my girls
Stand up and be heard
This is for my ladies, my sisters, all over

This is for my girls
Let life in with open arms
Let love in with an open heart
We got to remember
We’ll stand strong forever
If we stand together

This is for my girls
All around the world
Stand up, hold your head up
Don’t take no s**t from nobody

This is for my girls
Stand up and be heard
This is for my ladies, my sisters, all over
This is for my girls
