One of the Boys
Katy Perry Lyrics

I saw a spider
I didn't scream
'Cause I can belch the alphabet
Just double dog dare me
And I chose guitar over ballet
And I take these suckers down cause they just
Get in my way
The way
You look at me
Is kinda like a little sister
You high-five
Your goodbyes
And it leaves me nothing but blisters

So I don't want to be one of the boys
One of your guys
Just give me a chance
To prove to you tonight
I just wanna be one of the girls
Pretty in pearls
Not one of the boys

So over summer something changed
I started reading Seventeen
And shaving my legs
And I studied Lolita religiously
And I walked right in school
And caught you
Staring at me
'Cause I know
What you know
But now your gonna' have to take a number
Its OK
Maybe one day
But not until I get my
Diamond ring

'Cause I don't want to be one of the boys
One of your guys
Just give me a chance
To prove to you tonight
I just wanna be your homecoming queen
A pin up poster dream
Not one of the boys

I wanna be a flower
Not a dirty weed
And I wanna smell like roses
Not a baseball team
And I swear maybe one day
Your gonna' wanna' make out make out make out with me

(Don't wanna be)
Don't want to be
(Don't wanna be)
Don't want to be
(Don't wanna be)

'Cause I, I don't wanna be one
One of the boys
I just wanna be one of the girls
So pretty in pearls
Not one of the boys

This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
The clock is ticking
And I'll be giving my two weeks
Just give me a chance to prove to you tonight
That I just wanna be one of the girls
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
Secretly you're so amused
but nobody understands you
We used to be
Just like twins
So in sync
The same energy
Now's a dead battery
Used to laugh bout nothing
Now you're plain boring
don't play cheap, with your heart
Don't make a bet if you can't write the check, for me, for me.
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
I'm leaving you my legacy
I gotta make my mark
I gotta run it hard
I want you to remember me
You're like an Indian summer
In the middle of winter
Like a hard candy
With a surprise center
With each scar there's a map
That tells a story
What a souvenir of Young
Love's like jumping out
An airplane riding a tidal
Wave on an ocean of emotion
My heart rips me wide open

I put this song through google translate a few times and:

He saw the spider
Do not
"The reason why they can not drop the alphabet
Only double in the dog food.
He chose the guitar by the corps de ballet.
Having said that, it is just removed
Seize the way
You look at me?
It's a bit like a sister
and five
Your searched endlessly worried
This, however, more than me, it does not leave the pimple.
Thus, you do not want to be one of the guys.
One of the guys you
Give power
For today's show
I just want to be one of the girl
beautiful pearls
nothing boys
Then something changed in the summer.
I started reading Seventeen
Shouting bitter feet;
I studied religiously Lolita
He went straight to school
have you
Look at me?
"I know
How do you know that
But you're going to have to take a number.
Everything is good
Maybe one day
However, there is still mine
Diamond rings
"I do not want to be one of the guys.
One of the guys you
Give power
For today's show
Homosexual, presents it to your queen, I just want to say that you were made
Dream lead the poster
nothing boys
I want to be a flower
Or dirty main
I want to smell the roses.
There is no baseball team
I swear to you one day
You want to go to to find me, what I understand
I do not want to be
(Would not be)
I do not want to be
(Would not be)
"For myself, I do not want to be alone.
One of the boys
I just want to be one of the girl
So beautiful pearls
nothing boys

Yes Katy writes all her songs, but a lot of times she gets help from another writer. She wrote this one by herself and I actually think it's better than the ones where she works together with someone.

It’s sad how much she changed. Does anyone still sing like this?

Have you heard Katy Perry's new smile album? I loved it.


Cheery Kats wym downhill? She dyed her hair because she wanted to be herself and not her character anymore, it all fell out because the bleach was too much to handle. Her music hasn’t gotten “worse” it always has been the way it is these days. After teenage dream is when it went “downhill” prism wasn’t the best in my opinion and witness honestly was much better and is heavily slept on because of the controversy surrounding herself. Her new album smile is actually pretty solid. It’s not the best in my opinion but like a lot of it is a vibe

Damn yu r so right

Ava Haller

katie morgan it’s sad because I can’t find this music style anywhere anymore. She was so good at it lmao it ain’t that deep. Like good for her but I miss her old music.

katie morgan

I’m sure someone does, but for the most part no because this was 12 years ago. A completely different era. This music just isn’t a thing anymore. I don’t think it’s sad at all that she changed. As I said it’s been 12 years since this album was released. And now she’s one of the biggest artists on the face of this earth. She grew as a person and her career completely skyrocketed. And now she’s a mother. How is any of that sad. She’s thriving

All these people like "OMG i love Katy Perry, I LOVE ALL HER SONG" yet here we are with only 16 comments on this video and what like thousands on the chained to the rythem video

Benjamin Sierra

Well, videos gain more attention to non-curious music absorbers. And as well, this audio was released on YouTube in 2017; the album came out a while back in 2008.
