The boy he thinks Im damaged goods
I know he does and I guess he should
I dress like him and I take him down
He gets embarrassed when his friends come around

I can get the girl
But the boys just laugh
I can get the girls
But the boys just laugh

So this is a measure of me
Even though it shouldnt be
The lion lays down with the lamb
But I cant do it so I aint worth a damn

I can get the girls
But the boys just laugh
I can get the girls
But the boys just laugh at me

Come on now graceful
I want you to be
Come on now social
I said I want you to be
Come on now special
I I want you to be
I want you to be

I the virgin in the woods
Tell me now if they are good

Is it the boys who needed me
I am you and you set it free

I get the girls
But the boys just laugh
I get the girl
But the boys he laughs at me

I said this is the measure of me
And even though it shouldnt be
The lion lays down with the lamb
Yeah but I cant do it and I aint worth a damn
