  • A friend gave me your number
    To tell you watch your lover's tracks
    See I always kind of liked you
    So, I wanna have your back
    There is a good chance by the time you hear this
    The story's gonna say
    That I came on to him
    But it was never quite that way

    I knew he was good looking
    Maybe too good to be true
    But when he kissed me in that alley
    I could tell there was a you

    I don't want to be that girl
    With your guy
    To fool you
    Make you cry
    Wreck it all
    For one night
    To be with him when he should be with you
    I don't want all the dirty looks
    The headlines
    So, I called you
    To explain why
    I wound up
    With your guy
    When I don't wanna be that girl

    I know boys can be promiscuous
    Yeah, that's just what they do
    But this involves the both of us
    Yeah, it's our business too
    So, I thought I'd call to tell you
    It was never in my plan
    I'm not the scarlet Devil
    I don't want to take your man

    Imagine how surprised I was
    When he got up to leave
    It wasn't my name on his lips
    No, he didn't call for me
    He didn't say, Jolene

    I don't want to be that girl
    With your guy
    To fool you
    Make you cry
    Wreck it all
    For one night
    To be with him when he should be with you
    I don't want all the dirty looks
    The headlines
    So, I called you
    To explain why
    I wound up
    With your guy
    When I don't wanna be that girl

    We all know how the moral of the story goes
    Be careful what you reap because you reap what you sow
    I'm calling 'cause I really thought you should know
    Even though he's being that guy

    I don't want to be that girl
    With your guy
    To fool you
    Make you cry
    Wreck it all
    For one night
    To be with him when he should be with you
    I don't want all the dirty looks
    The headlines
    So, I called you
    To explain why
    I wound up
    With your guy
    When I don't wanna be that girl Writer/s: BUTCH WALKER, JENNIFER NETTLES
