"I Must Not Chase The Boys" as written by Bill Padley, Jeremy Peter Godfrey and Pamela Sheyne....
Won't someone tell me what is happenin to me
why am i so miunderstood?
Why can't they see?
Now I'm caught between the devil and the angel that I used to be

They say I'll understand it all in good time
but age ain't nothin but a number inmy mind
I'm goin crazy with this push me pull me
caught between wrong and right


CHORUS
(I want to give in to the woman in me
I want to be someone they don't want me to be
The moral of this story is i got no choice
I must not chase the boys)

I started writing down my deepest secrets
seven days a week of truth and fantasy
got the feelin that the way my life is
got to be prepared for changes

won't someone tell me what is happenin to me
why am i so misunderstood?
why can't they see? Now I'm caught between the devil and the angel that I used to be

CHORUS(extended)
(I want to give in to the woman in me
I want to be someone they don't want me to be
the moral of this story is i got no choice
I must not chase
I want to go left but they tell me go right
don't want to be the little girl they kissin goodnight
The moral of this story is i got no choice
i must not chase the boys)

they can try to make me write a thousand lies
but that won't ever change the way i feel inside
they've got their opinions but i don't care
cause that's not what i want to hear

i, i must, i must not chase the boys
i, i must, i must not chase the boys
i must, i must, i must not...chase...the boys

CHORUS(extended)

    General CommentThe line "They can try to make me write 1,ooo lies" should be "They can try to make me write 1,ooo lines" as in sentences on the chalk board kind of lines.

    General CommentI totally agree with loop-to-loop. : )
    This song is about controlling yourself whenever you see a hottie!

    General CommentI think besides practicing restraint, it's also about playing hard to get - "I wanna be someone they don't want me to be"and "don't wanna be the little girl they kissin' goodnight" - because she's been too "easy" in the past. Men are taking advantage of her and thinking she's loose, so they'll walk all over her. She realizes she'll be more valued if she doesn't do whatever they want her to do.

    General CommentI think that it's about her being a little boy crazy, and her parents disapprove, and pass it off as a phase. She wants to grow up, but her parents want her to stay their baby girl. She doesn't want to disappoint her parents, but she wants to be her own person. She's torn.
