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 take these suckers down cause they just
Get in my way
The way
You look at me
Is kinda like a little sister
You high-five
Your goodbyes
And it leaves me nothing but blisters

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

So over summer something changed
I started reading Seventeen
And shaving my legs
And I studied Lolita religiously
And I walked right in school
And caught you
Staring at me
'Cause I know
What you know
But now your gonna' have to take a number
Its OK
Maybe one day
But not until I get my
Diamond ring

'Cause I don't want to be one of the boys
One of your guys
Just give me a chance
To prove to you tonight
I just wanna be your homecoming queen
A pin up poster dream
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
Your gonna' wanna' make out make out make out with me

(Don't wanna be)
Don't want to be
(Don't wanna be)
Don't want to be
(Don't wanna be)

'Cause I, I don't wanna be one
One
One of the boys
I just wanna be one of the girls
So pretty in pearls
Not one of the boys
