Notes for Parents: Although it is classified as children's music, like most Kindie rock music the music and lyrics of Tomboy in a Princess Dress are interesting and accessible to all ages. It is an excellent song for any girl who feels like she is somewhere in between the usual labels of "girly girl" and "tomboy", since Shelton captures the wonderful blend of the two that many girls love.
