She's Not Me

Lyrics Print lyrics

I should have seen the sign way back then

When she told me that you were her best friend

And now she's rolling, rolling, rolling

And you were stolen, stolen, stolen

 

She started dressing like me and talking like me

It freaked me out

She started calling you up in the middle of the night

What's that about?

 

I just want to be there when you discover

You wake up in the morning next to your new lover

She might cook you breakfast and love you in the shower

The flavor of the moment, 'cause she don't have what's ours

 

She's not me

She doesn't have my name

She'll never have what I have

It won't be the same

It won't be the same

 

I should have seen the sign when you were here

Under a different light, it's all so clear

She was stealing, stealing, stealing

And now you're feeling, feeling, feeling

 

She started dyeing her hair and

Wearing the same perfume as me

She started reading my books

And stealing my looks and lingerie

 

I just want to be there when you discover

You wake up in the morning next to your new lover

She might make you breakfast and love you in the shower

The thrill is momentary, 'cause she don't have what's ours

 

She's not me

She doesn't have my name

She'll never have what I have

It won't be the same

It won't be the same

 

She is licking her lips

And she's batting her eyes

She's not me

She's got legs up to there

And such beautiful hair

She's not me

Oh, devoted for life

Make a beautiful wife

She's not me

If you spend some more time

I guarantee you will find

She's not me

 

I know I can do it better

 

If someone wants to pimp your style

And hang with you a little while

And make up for all the things you lack

You're gonna have to watch your back

 

She's not me

She doesn't have my name

She'll never have what I have

It won't be the same

It won't be the same

 

Never let you forget

She's not me

She's not me, and she never will be

 

Never let you forget

She's not me

She's not me, and she never will be

 

(Pharrell:)

Gotta find a new way to show your feelings

I guess it was some bullshit saying you love me, love me

Guess my expectation hit the ceiling

When you come back it could cost us trust, trust me

Wendy!

 

She's not me

She's not me

She's not me, and she never will be

She's not me

She's not me

She's not me, and she never will be

She never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

 

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

 

She's not me, and she never will be

Never will be

Never will be

Never will be

 

She's not me

Never will be

Never will be

 

She's not me, and she never will be

She never will be

Song

The title line of this 80s-style dance-funk track comes from Pharrell. Madonna referred to the six-plus minutes long song as "That's my follow-up to Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive'."

Wendy Melvoin (the twin sister of Susannah Melvoin, co-writer of Candy Perfume Girl) from Prince's legendary band The Revolution appears as a guest and plays guitar.

Tour

She's Not Me @ Sticky & Sweet Tour"Have you ever had a best friend who wanted to do everything you did, including ***CENSORED*** your boyfriend?" Madonna immediately sets the tone when performing this rivalry song on the Sticky & Sweet Tour. But like a true Madonna performance, she again adds an extra layer to the song. While the lyrics are referring to an unfaithful lover, the show act plays with different Madonna images from throughout her whole career, visualized on the screens. This way, the phrase "she's not me" gets a whole different meaning. Then four female dancers appear on the catwalk, each representing a certain Madonna character: 'Material Girl' with the pink Monroe dress, 'Open Your Heart' with the Gaultier bustier, 'Like A Virgin' with the wedding dress and 'Blond Ambition' with the pointy bra. Madonna walks up to them and starts poking and making fun of them. She rips off the wedding veil, tries to strangle one of them with it and then kisses her full on the lips. It's her way of telling all the critics that those images of her aren't really her. For the breakdown of the song at the end, she goes totally crazy, dancing and spasming on stage, throwing away her heart-shaped glasses and taking off her old school jacket & hotpants.
