about

for every man who has given me the once-over, who has judged my musicianship by my looks, and not my skill.

lyrics

So you say you think I'm cute as I'm telling you the news
Doesn't matter what I say; I make you smile anyway
If you watch me work and play, I'm all curves, you wish you may
I'm all lines in which you lose right angles to me and you

But I'm not just a pretty face, I run fast to win the race
I am the best at what I do, and that's got nothing to do with pleasing you

Keep yourself in check; you stumble like a wreck, dear
If you want me true, love me for what I do
Don't give me that stare, I don't dance for anyone, dear
If you want me true, love me for what I do

You loop your arm around my waist, tell me “don't be getting hasty”
Doesn't matter what I say; you think I like you anyway
Well I hate to break the spell (or maybe not, it's hard to tell)
But take your hands off of me now, I'm telling you you're not allowed

But I'm not just a pretty face, I run fast to win the race
I am the best at what I do, and that's got nothing to do with pleasing you

Keep yourself in check; you stumble like a wreck, dear
If you want me true, love me for what I do
Don't give me that stare, I don't dance for anyone, dear
If you want me true, love me for what I do

Don't mind the feeling in your stomach that you might have played this wrong
I promise your intention has been noted; move along

And keep yourself in check; you stumble like a wreck, dear
If you want me true, love me for what I do
Don't give me that stare, I don't dance for anyone, dear
If you want me true, love me for what I do
Yeah, if you want me true, love me for what I do
Oh, you can't have me, true, love me for what I do
