It's Different For Girls
Joe Jackson Lyrics


What the hell is wrong with you tonight?
I can't seem to say or do the right thing
Wanted to be sure you're feeling right
Wanted to be sure we want the same thing

She said, I can't believe it
You can't, possibly mean it
Don't we, all want the same thing
Don't we
Well, who said anything about love?

No, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
(Don't give me love)
No, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
You're all the same

Mama always told me save yourself
Take a little time and find the right girl
Then again don't end up on the shelf
Logical advice gets you in a whirl

I know, a lot of things that you don't
You want to hear some?
She said, just give me something
Anything
Well give me all you got but not love

No, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
(Don't give me love)
No, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same

Who said anything about love?

No, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
(Don't give me love)
No, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
(Don't give me love)
No, no, no, no, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
(Don't give me love)
No, no, no, no, no, not love she said
Don't you know that it's different for girls?
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same
You're all the same

Very emotional song for me. I first heard it in on the radio in the wee hours of the morning-I was 15 and in a homeless shelter. (Mom kicked me out )It was strangely comforting and relatable.There is a couple great live performances oh YouTube that are superb. He’s one of those performers who sounds as good and in most cases better live. Peace🦋

Me too. I was afraid to listen to it. 😥

back in those days maybe we'd run off together somewhere, Always wanted to go to old Mexico, hang on the beach and eat tacos :-) and still young and crazy enough to do it!

Devon Wheelhouse

@Joetime90 awesome that you were playing this song in the 90's. my cover band played this in the early 80's. love the clean guitar sound and bass lines doing all the turnarounds.

@Michael Drennan I'm 30 now but I wish I was introduced younger. Awesome song.
