Katy Perry One of the Boys Lyrics

sponsored links
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.
