"I Refuse" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
Everything's heaven sent
That's what you said and went
Inside your fairy glass
Somethin' you think will last
And when they crop you like a clown
You got your smile on upside down

Be-baby I refuse
(I do refuse)
Uh, you can pick or choose
(I do refuse)
Find 'omebody else to use
(I do refuse)
'Cause I refuse to come along

And everything's on a whim
That's what you said to him
Lyin' in wunderlust
Are feelings you never trust
And when they pamper you with ice
I can't believe you don't think twice

Uh baby I refuse
(I do refuse)
Uh, you can pick or choose
(I do refuse)
Find somebody else to use
(I do refuse)
'Cause I refuse to come along

And everyone makes the play
With nothing left much to say
They're all in an endless line
Waiting for equal time
They keep screaming it's the truth
And you keep kneelin' in the booth

Oh baby I refuse
(I do refuse)
Uh, you can pick or choose
(I do refuse)
Find somebody else to use
(I do refuse)
'Cause I refuse to come along

Oh, I do refuse
(I do refuse)
Oh, you got nothin' to lose
(I do refuse)
Find somebody else to use
(find somebody else to use)
(I do refuse)
'Cause I refuse to come along

I refuse
(I do refuse)
Ah, oo-oo
(I do refuse)
(find somebody else to use)
(I do refuse)
'Cause I refuse to come along

I refuse
(I do refuse)
Oo, oh got nothin' to lose
(I do refuse)
(find somebody else to use)
(I do refuse)

    General Commenti think this song is talking about being used and he's tired of it so he refuses to come along when she pulls him.

    i can't believe no one has commented though.

    yay! i'm the 1st one! haha :)

    General CommentYeah I think it's about a girl who likes to pretend she's above emotions. She just likes to play around with people, fool them into thinking she's immune to love or consequence. She's like one of those spontaneous, cheery chicks who hates getting tangled into relationships so she walks out to spare herself the pain. All the while causing those around her to feel used and abandoned.

    These are some very cool lyrics. "Pamper you with ice," like getting the cold shoulder from a former flame. And this one:

    "Everything's heaven sent
    That's what you said and went
    Inside your fairy glass
    In something you think will last."

    Just being free to the moment, all impulsive and such. Trying to convince yourself and others of the simple pleasure in life - lust.
