Lorrie Morgan’s Empowering Song
Lorrie Morgan‘s song “What Part of No” was one of her three singles that topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs. Her other two are “Five Minutes” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.” What these songs have in common is that they are empowering and have great messages in it.

If I’ve told you once I’ve told you twice
I’m just here to unwind
Everyone has the power to say no to something that they don’t really want or like to do. This Lorrie Morgan-track empowers everyone especially women to say no if someone is being aggressive to them. Sometimes, people think that the world owes everything to them and they can take anything they want. That should not be the case and we must all learn to stand up for ourselves.
The song portrays a specific situation to us where the guy is trying to pick up the woman at a bar. She says no because she is not there to look for a quick one-night stand. She is there for herself, to unwind, and not think about her problems so it’s better to let her be.
