Hey wait a minute
Who do you think you are?
Comin' on, comin' on
Like you're some kind of movie star

Wearing twelve hundre dollars
D'ecollet'e
You looked a whole lot better to me
From twenty feet away

You're just a 3 dressed up as a 9
You're only, wastin' my time
A 3 dressed up as a 9, hey yeah ...
(All dressed up but you're only a 3, a 3 dressed up as a 9)

Socially
You know you fit in just right
But as for me
I'm gonna have to pass tonight

Well you can say what you like
Be what you wanna be
You can suit yourself, baby
But you don't suit me

You're just a 3 dressed up as a 9
You're only, wastin' my time
A 3 dressed up as a 9, hey yeah
(All dressed up but you're only a 3, a 3 dressed up as a 9)

Hey wait a minute
Who do you think you are
Comin' on, comin' on
Just like you're some kinda movie star

Well you can say what you like
Be what you wanna be
You can suit yourself baby
But you don't suit me

You're just a 3 dressed up as a 9
You're only, wastin' my time
A 3 dressed up as a 9, hey yeah

    General CommentThis song clearly is about someone who (in some unknown manner) is trying to make themselves seem better/more important than other people.

    That is, the person is NOT actually better/more important than anyone else, but is falsely acting like they are.

    I love this song because a lot of people in my life are "threes dressed up as nines"...what teenager doesn't know someone like this?
