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) (this song is monotone)
That's not my name
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feeling)
That's not my name

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

They call me "Hell"
They call me "Stacey" (Are you calling me darling?)
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 (Are you calling me bird?)
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 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) (this song is monotone)
That's not my name
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feeling)
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 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) (this song is monotone)
That's not my name
That's not my name (I've gotta get some soul, I gotta get some feeling)
That's not my name

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....

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

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

Four letter word just to get me along
It's a difficulty and I'm bitin' on my tongue
And I, I keep stallin' and keepin' it together
People around gotta find somethin' to say now
Holdin' back everyday the same
Don't wanna be a loner
Listen to me, oh no
I never say anything at all
But with nothin' 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
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'll miss the catch if they throw me the ball
I'm the last chick standing up against the wall
Keep fa-fallin', these heels that keep me borin'
Getting clamped up and sittin' on the fence now
So alone all the time and I lock myself away
Listen to me, oh no
And though I'm dressed up out and all
With everything considered 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
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

Are you callin' me darlin'?
Are you callin' me bird?
Are you callin' me darlin'?
Are you callin' me bird?

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
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
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
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
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

So alone all the time and I lock myself away
Though I'm dressed up out and all
With everything considered they forget my name




Still want all of the lyrics for what he is saying in the background to add to this, sorry.

The way you worked pedals and loop pedals, fuzz boxes and just got it all together in a live performance was magnificent. this video doesn't reflect the live brilliance you could perform with a handful of modestly priced equipment to preform such a full sound. Truly a standout of your time, using the best equipment that live performances could have. And making it SING!
