YOU'RE NOT MY KIND Music and Lyrics by Rob Oswin
I'm all dolled up, I'm feeling grand, Yes its true and here she comes again. It looks like Monday morning's shaping up! I told my story of weekend glory, That felt like seven days of solitaire… She laughed and told me of her weekend that wasn't long enough… Yeah!
Chorus: AND EVERY TIME I DRAW A LITTLE BIT CLOSER, SHE CLOSES HER DOOR AND POLITELY SAYS NO SIR. BUT THANK-YOU VERY MUCH, I'M HONORED, YET I MUST GRACIOUSLY DECLINE. YOU SEE MY DEAR, SHE WHISPERS IN MY EAR, YOU'RE NOT MY KIND.
Now its the coffee machine, we're hanging around, She said she might want to talk once I settle down. She stirs me like she stirs her coffee.
I swallowed my pride and took her advice, I stayed out of beds I wouldn't lay in twice. And still I'm lonesome for her company... Yeah!
SO WHAT SHE'S TELLING ME IS... HER KIND OF MAN IS THE KIND WHO WON'T, SAY GOODNIGHT TO THE LADIES WHEN ITS TIME TO GO HOME. HER KIND OF MAN WON'T LOVE HER FOREVER!!! SO WHAT SHE'S TELLING ME IS... HER KIND OF MAN WON'T RESPECT HER, TRUST HER WITH TRUTH AND PROTECT HER. HER KIND OF MAN ONLY LOVES HER TILL THE SUN COMES UP!! YEAH!
Break over verse
I'm all messed up, I'm feeling blue, But I'm a gambling man with nothing leR to lose. I can't help myself.
That's when I, got down on my knee, and held up the ring, And started singin" the song like only I could sing And still she played me like a fiddle... Oh Yeah
Extended Keywords: Hormones can be so cruel. Have you ever wanted someone so bad you could taste it... even though they didn't really want you? You know her, that girl that everybody wants at the office, the waitress who's friendly to everybody. There's no accounting for taste...With David Clayton Thomas and Blood Sweat and Tears on my mind, this is one of the first songs I ever wrote completely on the piano.
