01 One of the Boys

[Verse 1]

I saw a spider, I didn’t scream
‘Cause I can belch the alphabet
Just double dog dare me
And I chose guitar over ballet
And I tape these suckers down
‘Cause they just get in my way

[Pre-Chorus 1]

The way you look at me
Is kinda like a little sister
You high five your goodbyes
And it leaves me nothing but blisters

[Chorus 1]

So I don’t wanna be one of the boys
One of your guys
Just give a chance to prove to you tonight
That I just wanna be one of the girls
Pretty in pearls
Not one of the boys

[Verse 2]

So over the summer, something changed
I started reading Seventeen and shaving my legs
And I studied Lolita religiously
And I walked right in to school and caught you staring at me

[Pre-Chorus 2]

‘Cause I know what you know
But now you’re gonna have to take a number
It’s okay, maybe one day
But not until you give me my diamond ring

[Chorus 2]

‘Cause I don’t wanna be one of the boys
One of your guys
Just give me a chance to prove to you tonight
That I just wanna be your homecoming queen
Pin up poster dream
Not one of the boys

[Bridge]

I wanna be a flower, not a dirty weed
I wanna smell like roses, not a baseball team
And I swear maybe one day
You’re gonna wanna make out
Make out, make out with me
Don’t wanna be (Don’t wanna be)
Don’t wanna be (Don’t wanna be)
Don’t wanna be (Don’t wanna be)

[Chorus 1]

‘Cause I don’t wanna be one of the boys
One of your guys
Just gimme a chance to prove to you tonight
That I just wanna be one of the girls
Pretty in pearls
Not one of the boys

02 I Kissed a Girl

[Verse 1]

This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It’s not what I’m used to
Just wanna try you on
I’m curious for you
Caught my attention

[Chorus]

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

[Verse 2]

No, I don’t even know your name
It doesn’t matter
You’re my experimental game
Just human nature
It’s not what good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

[Chorus]

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

[Bridge]

Us girls, we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist, so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent

[Chorus]

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

03 Waking Up in Vegas

[Verse 1]

You gotta help me out
It’s all a blur last night
We need a taxi
‘Cause you’re hungover and I’m broke
I lost my fake ID
But you lost the motel key
Spare me your freaking dirty looks now
Don’t blame me

[Pre-Chorus 1]

You wanna cash out
And get the hell outta town
Don’t be a baby
Remember what you told me

[Chorus]

Shut up, and put your money where your mouth is
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up, and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas

[Verse 2]

Why are those lights so bright?
Oh, did we get hitched last night?
Dressed up like Elvis
Why am I wearing your class ring?

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Don’t call your mother
‘Cause now we’re partners in crime
Don’t be a baby
Remember what you told me

[Chorus]

Shut up, and put your money where your mouth is
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up, and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas

[Bridge]

You got me into this
Information overload, situation lost control
Send out an S.O.S
Ha, and get some cash out
We’re gonna tear up the town
No, don’t be a baby
Remember what you told me
Remember what you told me
Remember what you told me, told me, told me

[Chorus]

Shut up, and put your money where your mouth is
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up, and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That’s what you get for waking up in Vegas

[Outro]

That’s what you get, baby
Shake the glitter
Shake, shake, shake the glitter
Gimme some cash out, baby
Gimme some cash out, baby

04 Thinking of You

[Verse 1]

Comparisons are easily done
Once you’ve had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

[Pre-Chorus 1]

You said move on, where do I go?
I guess second best is all I will know

[Chorus]

‘Cause when I’m with him, I am thinking of you
(Thinking of you, thinking of you)
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one who was spending the night
(Spending the night, spending the night)
Oh, I wish that I was looking into your eyes

[Verse 2]

You’re like an Indian summer in the middle of winter
Like a hard candy with a surprise center
How do I get better once I’ve had the best?
You said there’s tons of fish in the water
So the waters I will test

[Pre-Chorus 2]

He kissed my lips, I taste your mouth (I taste your mouth), oh
He pulled me in, I was disgusted with myself

[Chorus]

‘Cause when I’m with him, I am thinking of you
(Thinking of you, thinking of you)
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one who was spending the night
(Spending the night, spending the night)
Oh, I wish that I was looking into your

[Bridge]

The best
And yes, I do regret
How I could let myself let you go
Now, now the lesson’s learned
I touched it, I was burned
Oh, I think you should know

[Chorus]

‘Cause when I’m with him, I am thinking of you
(Thinking of you, thinking of you)
Thinking of you (Oh)
What you would do if
You were the one who was spending the night
(Spending the night, spending the night)
Oh, I wish that I was looking into your, your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Oh, won’t you walk through
And bust in the door and take me away?
Oh, no more mistakes

[Outro]

‘Cause in your eyes, I’d like to stay
Stay

05 Mannequin

[Verse 1]

How do I get closer to you
When you keep it all on mute?
How will I know the right way to love you?
Usually the queen of figuring out
Breaking down a man is no workout
But I have no clue how to get through to you

[Pre-Chorus 1]

Oh, I wanna hit you just to see if you cry
I keep knocking on wood
Hoping there’s a real boy inside

[Chorus]

‘Cause you’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you’re not a man

[Verse 2]

I wish I could just turn you on
Put a battery in, make you talk
Even pull a string, for you to say anything
But with you, there is no guarantee
Only expired warranty
A bunch of broken parts
And I can’t seem to find your heart

[Pre-Chorus 2]

Oh, I’m such a fool, I’m such a fool, I’m such a fool
This one’s out of my hands
I can’t put you back together again

[Chorus]

‘Cause you’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real, but you’re not a man
You’re just a toy
Could you ever be a real, real boy and understand?
But you’re not a man

[Bridge]

If the past is the problem, our future could solve them, baby
I could bring you to life if you let me inside, baby
It’ll hurt, but in the end, you’ll be a man

[Breakdown]

You’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real, oh
Toy…
Could you ever be a real, real boy?
Understand, but you’re not a man

[Outro]

You’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you’re not a man

06 Ur So Gay

[Intro]

Your mind may refuse to believe
Your mind may refuse to believe

[Verse 1]

I hope you hang yourself with your H&M scarf
While jacking off listening to Mozart
You bitch and moan about LA
Wishing you were in the rain reading Hemingway
You don’t eat meat
And drive electrical cars
You’re so indie rock it’s almost an art
You need SPF 45 just to stay alive

[Chorus]

You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like boys
You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like…

[Verse 2]

You’re so sad, maybe you should buy a happy meal
You’re so skinny, you should really Super Size the deal
Secretly you’re so amused that nobody understands you
I’m so mean ’cause I cannot get you out of your head
I’m so angry ’cause you’d rather MySpace instead
I can’t believe I fell in love with someone that wears more makeup
And

[Chorus]

You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like boys
You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like…

[Breakdown]

Hey
Oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh!
La la la, la la la
Do do do, bah bah bah
Do do do, da da day
You’re so gay
You’re so gay

[Bridge]

You walk around like you’re oh so debonair
You pull ’em down and there’s really nothing there
I wish you would just be real with me

[Chorus]

You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like boys
You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
Oh, no no no no no no no
You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like boys
You’re so gay, and you don’t even like boys
No, you don’t even like
No, you don’t even like

[Outro]

No, you don’t even like… penis
