Theme

This song is about a woman being treated as a trophy wife by her husband. The husband treats his wife as an object and a trophy that he won instead of as a person, to which the wife is against.

A "trophy wife" is a wife who is regarded as a status symbol for her husband. The term is often used in a derogatory way, implying that the wife in question has little personal merit besides her physical attractiveness.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You picked me out, miss pageant queen
So I brushed my hair, and I stayed clean
To be your girl, don't need a degree
All I am is a trophy

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm just a pretty painting on the wall, that is your life
You put me on your shelf and show your friends a pretty sight
You start feeling up my body, but you know I'm not alright
I have more to offer, I won't be your trophy wife

[Chorus]
A decoration to your life
I'd rather be stars to your night
So treat me right, right, right
I won't be your trophy wife

[Verse 2]
You think all I have to be is a chef
And a freak in the sheets
But, baby, you're wrong
There's more to me
Find someone else who will be

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm just a pretty painting on the wall, that is your life
You put me on your shelf and show your friends a pretty sight
You start feeling up my body, but you know I'm not alright
I have more to offer, I won't be your trophy wife

[Chorus]
A decoration to your life
I'd rather be stars to your night
So treat me right, right, right
I won't be your trophy wife

[Bridge]
Not a grand prize
I'm not an object
You didn't win me
I just wanted love that would sustain me
Keep me together, oh, no, oh
I won't be your trophy wife

[Chorus]
A decoration to your life
I'd rather be stars to your night
So treat me right, right, right
I won't be your trophy wife

[Outro]
(I won't be your trophy wife)
(I won't be your trophy wife)
(I won't be your trophy wife)
(I won't be your trophy wife)
