Lyrics

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
(The Way) The way
(You Look) You look at me (me)
Is kinda like a little sister
(high fives) Your high fives
(Your Good) Your goodbyes (byes)
And it leaves me nothing but blisters

(Chorus)
So I don't wanna be (Don't wanna)
One of the boys (Don't wanna)
One of your guys (Don't wanna)
Just gimme a chance to prove to you tonight
That I just wanna be (Just wanna)
One of the girls (Just wanna)
Pretty in pearls (Just wanna)
Not one of the boys

So over the summer
Something changed
I started reading Seventeen and
Shaving my legs and
I study Lolita religiously
And I walked right into school and caught you
Staring at me

'Cause (I know) I know what you know (What you)
(But now) But now you're gonna have to take a number
(Okay) It's okay
(Maybe) Maybe one day
(Not) But not until you give my
(Diamond) Diamond ring

(Chorus)
'Cause I don't wanna be (Don't wanna)
One of the boys (Don't wanna)
One of your guys (Don't wanna)
Just give me a chance to prove to you tonight
That I just wanna be your (Just wanna)
Homecoming queen (Just wanna)
Pin up poster dream (Just wanna)
Not one of the boys

I wanna be a flower
Not a dirty weed
And 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 (echo) x3

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