"Single" as written by Wayne Wilkins, Stephen Kipner, Andrew Frampton and Natasha Bedingfield....
Ah yeah that's right
All you single people out there
This is for you

I'm not waitin' around for a man to save me
(Cos I'm happy where I am)
Don't depend on a guy to validate me
(No no)
I don't need to be anyone's baby
(Is that so hard to understand?)
No I don't need another half to make me whole

Make your move if you want doesn't mean I will or won't
I'm free to make my mind up you either got it or you don't

Chorus:
This is my current single status
My declaration of independence
There's no way I'm tradin' places
Right now a star's in the ascendant

I'm single
(Right now)
That's how I want to be
I'm single
(Right now)
That's how I want to be

Ah yeah Uh Huh that's right

Don't need to be on somebody's arm to look good
(I like who I am)
I'm not saying I don't want to fall in love 'cause I would
I'm not gonna get hooked up just 'cause you say I should
(Can't romance on demand)
I'm gonna wait so I'm sorry if you misunderstood

Chorus

Everything in it's right time everything in it's right place
I know I'll settle down one day
But 'til then I like it this way it's my way
Eh I like it this way

Make your move if you want doesn't mean I will or won't
I'm free to make my mind up you either got it or you don't
'Til then I'm single

This is my current single status
My declaration of independence
There's no way I'm tradin' places
Right now a star's in the ascendant

    General CommentI don't think the lyrics are about her trying to convince herself she's happy being single. I see it as more as a response to people who question her for her single status, or who insist she give up being single before she wants to or is ready to, and telling them to back off, haha, 'cause "That's how I wanna be". :D

    Being single's great. :D

    General Commenti've been in love with this song since its first release in the uk and this was the song that made me buy her album, despite the extra cost from amazon uk. I am single, and when i heard the song, my head was going "AWMIGOD, YES!!!!" the lyrics are exactly the things I have always wanted to tell people. Especially this annoying chick i knew who think that there must be something wrong with me because i dont have a fricking boyfriend.
    I cant even pick a favorite line off this song. It took about a week before everyone knew this as my anthem.
    This song also reminds me of summer 2004.

    General CommentThe lyrics are pretty self explanatory.She's tired of feeling so desperate for guy. she likes being independent every once in awhile.
    i like the whistling in the song. its catchy...
