about

Written 2009, recorded 2011. I heard one too many heteronormative songs with names like "I'm a Man".

lyrics

I won't be your man, that's not what I am
Don't call me your man, that ain't who I am
If you think that's what I am
Let me tell you, you've got it all wrong

I won't play that game, I won't do it that way
I don't play the game, I think the rules are insane
If you think that's why I'm here
Let me tell you, I won't be taking part

Don't call me your baby
Can't you see that's quite an insult?
And I'll make the same promise
I think we'll both be better for it

I'm not going to sing about the way you talk
I'm not going to write about the way you walk
If you really want to hear 'bout that
I think we both know that's been written before

If you want to hear about that shit
Go turn on the radio
If that's all you want to hear
I think you'd better go find someone else
