  • I don't wanna be in your posse girl
    I don't wanna be all caught up in your
    Social scene

    I don't wanna be
    Be in your front seat girl
    I know I'm your recruit
    But I ain't gonna follow suit

    You got Morrissey and Joy Division CD
    But I don't go for them
    I can't move to that beat

    I like Marvin Gaye and gospel music
    My soul and my heart
    But you call it noise
    You always spoil my favorite parts

    I don't wanna be in your posse girl
    It's not my scene
    I don't need your company

    You're skipping school 'cause it's cool
    But it's not for me
    I learned to dream
    I learned to read at this old academy

    You're out make every man
    Your fleeting dream
    But I'm a one-man woman
    I'm all down with monogamy

    You cuss and curse
    So they think that you're rough and tough
    But I like Shakespeare
    And I find dammit heavy enough

    You like new age
    All the rage, philosophy
    But I don't read my palms
    I read the psalms
    They speak to me

    Don't wanna be in your posse girl
    I don't wanna
    Be caught in your social machine

    Don't wanna be in your posse girl
    It's not my scene, all of the aristocracy

    It's not you
    Maybe I'm just to pedantic
    I'm a self-confessed
    Idealist and romantic
    You say join the gang
    Be my yang and I'll be your yin

    But try as I might
    I'm not your type, I don't fit in

    I don't wanna be, be in your posse girl
    It's not your fault
    And I send my apologies

    I don't wanna be, be in your posse girl
    You're a trip
    But I don't flip on your ecstasy

    I don't wanna be in your posse girl
    Trust me, you'll see, we're yin and yang
    That's my prophecy
