LYRICS

Jenny Lewis “Just One Of The Guys” Lyrics:

All our friends, they’re gettin’ on
But the girls are still staying young
If I get caught being rude in a conversation
With a child bride on a summer vacation

No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me
No matter how hard I try to have an open mind
There’s a little something inside that prevents me

It’s how I live. You got me here,
Locked in this bathroom full of tears
And I have begged for you and I have borrowed
But I’ve been the only sister to my own sorrow

No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me
No matter how hard I try to have an open mind
There’s a little clock inside that keeps tickin’

There’s only one difference between you and me
When I look at myself, all I can see:
I’m just another lady without a baby

No matter how hard I try to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me
No matter how hard I try to have an open mind
There’s a little cop inside that prevents me

I’m not gonna break for you
I’m not gonna pray for you
I’m not gonna pay for you
That’s not what ladies do

Dah dah-dah dah-dah…

Jenny Lewis has officially released the first single from her upcoming album, The Voyager, due out July 29. Listen above to “Just One Of The Guys” via Spotify.

The song is completely in the character of Lewis, an ultracool rock star who’s fit in with the guys in bands The Postal Service and Rilo Kiley. She’s been performing the song for years, mainly as part of Jenny and Johnny, and here she’s joined by Beck, who is also given credit on twitter as the producer of the song.

If you’re wondering about the awesome Adam Siegel designed outfit Lewis is wearing in the graphics for the album and single, check out this article in the Boston Globe, where she explains:

In the past, like for the last Rilo Kiley record, “Under the Blacklight,” I wore exclusively hot pants because the themes in that record were the underbelly of Los Angeles. This record has a different tone and in some ways there is a femininity to it but there is also a masculine side.

Order the album at JennyLewis.com, Amazon, and iTunes.
