That's Not My Name
The Ting Tings Lyrics


Four letter word just to get me along
It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue
And I, I keep stalling, keeping me together
People around gotta find something to say now
Holding back, everyday the same
Don't wanna be a loner
Listen to me, oh no
I never say anything at all
But with nothing to consider they forget my name ('ame, 'ame, 'ame)

They call me, "Hell"
They call me, "Stacey"
They call me, "Her"
They call me, "Jane"
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
They call me, "Quiet girl"
But I'm a riot Mary, Jo, Lisa
Always the same
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name

I miss the catch if they throw me the ball
I'm the last chick standing up against the wall
Keep up, falling, these heels they keep me boring
Getting glammed up and sitting on the fence now
So alone all the time at night
Lock myself away
Listen to me, I'm not
Although I'm dressed up, out and all
With everything considered they forget my name ('ame, 'ame, 'ame)

They call me, "Hell" (this song was in my head)
They call me, "Stacey" (now it's in my mind)
They call me, "Her" (call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing)
They call me "Jane"
That's not my name (and though I realize I cannot emphasize)
That's not my name (I'll stick around but just don't promise, nothing binding)
That's not my name
That's not my name
They call me, "Quiet girl" (and baby, can't you see, that you're so desperately)
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa (a standing joker like a vocal one-liner)
Always the same
That's not my name (instead of sing-a-long)
That's not my name (this song is monotone)
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul)
That's not my name (I gotta get some feeling)

Are you calling me, darling?
Are you calling me bird?

They call me, "Hell" (are you calling me darling?)
They call me, "Stacey"
They call me, "Her"
They call me, "Jane"
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
They call me, "Quiet girl" (are you calling me bird?)
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa
Always the same
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name

They call me, "Hell" (this song was in my head)
They call me, "Stacey" (now it's in my mind)
They call me, "Her" (call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing)
They call me, "Jane"
That's not my name (and though I realize)
That's not my name (I cannot emphasize)
That's not my name (I'll stick around but just don't promise, nothing binding)
That's not my name (so alone all the time and I lock myself away)
They call me, "Quiet girl" (and baby, can't you see, that you're so desperately)
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa (a standing joker like a vocal one-liner)
Always the same
That's not my name (instead of sing-a-long)
That's not my name (this song is monotone)
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul)
That's not my name (I gotta get some feeling)

They call me, "Hell" (this song was in my head)
They call me, "Stacey" (now it's in my mind)
They call me, "Her" (call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing)
They call me, "Jane"
That's not my name (and though I realize)
That's not my name (I cannot emphasize)
That's not my name (I'll stick around but just don't promise, nothing binding)
That's not my name (so alone all the time and I lock myself away)
They call me, "Quiet girl" (and baby, can't you see, that you're so desperately)
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa (a standing joker like a vocal one-liner)
Always the same
That's not my name (instead of sing-a-long)
That's not my name (this song is monotone)
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul)
That's not my name (I gotta get some feeling)

They call me, "Hell" (this song was in my head)
They call me, "Stacey" (now it's in my mind)
They call me, "Her" (call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing)

That's not my name (and though I realize)
That's not my name (I cannot emphasize)
That's not my name (I'll stick around but just don't promise, nothing binding)
That's not my name (so alone all the time and I lock myself away)
They call me, "Quiet girl" (and baby, can't you see, that you're so desperately)
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa
Always the same (though I'm dressed up)
That's not my name (out and all, with everything considered)
That's not my name (they forget my name)
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul)
That's not my name (I gotta get some feeling)

This song was in my head
Now it's in my mind
Call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing
And though I realize
I cannot emphasize
I'll stick around but just don't promise, nothing binding
And baby, can't you see
That you're so desperately
A standing joker like a vocal one-liner
Instead of sing-a-long
This song is monotone
I've gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feeling

For those wondering what the guy was singing along in the chorus:

This song was in my head
Now it's in my mind
Call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing
And though I realize
I cannot emphasize
I'll stick around but just don't promise, nothing binding
And baby, can't you see
That you're so desperately
A standing joker like a vocal one-liner
Instead of sing-a-long
This song is monotone
I've gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feeling

If you are interested at what the drummer sings in the background at 2:56, here are the lyrics:

This song was in my head, now it's in my mind,
Call it, reach it, get some words and get some timing,
Though I realize, I cannot emphasize,
I'll stick around, but just a promise, nothing binding,
However can't you see, that you're so desperately,
A standing joker like a vocal one-liner,
Instead of sing-along, this song is monotone,
I gotta get some soul, gotta get some feeling....
