Can't Pin Me Down

  • You can paint me any color
    And I can be your clown
    But you ain't got my number
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down

    Now I got your back up
    What do you not like
    Do you think I'm stuck-up
    'Cause I'm always picking fights
    You might think I'm one thing,
    But I am another
    You can't call my bluff
    Time to back off, motherfucker

    Do you really want me to write a feminist anthem
    I'm happy cooking dinner in the kitchen for my husband
    Yeah, yeah

    You can paint me any color
    And I can be your clown
    But you ain't got my number
    No, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down

    You ain't got me sussed yet
    You're not even close
    Baby, it's the one thing
    That I hate the most
    All these contradictions pouring out of me
    Just another girl in the 21st century

    I am never gonna give you anything you expect
    You think I'm like the others
    Boy, you need to get your eyes checked, checked

    You can paint me any color
    And I can be your clown
    But you ain't got my number
    No, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down

    I could be your sister
    I could be your mother
    I could be your neighbour
    I could be your lover
    Do you like my body?
    Do you like my mind?
    What is it that you are having trouble to define?

    I am never gonna give you anything you expect
    You think I'm like the others
    Boy, you need to get your eyes checked, checked

    You can paint me any color
    I can be your Russian doll
    But you ain't got my number
    No, you can't make me small
    You can paint me any color
    And I can be your clown
    But you ain't got my number
    No, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down
    Yeah, you can't pin me down Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
