hey, you, don't need your benediction
i'm through flipping through your fiction
if you want a camera trick
then find a counterfeit

i'm here cooped up, engineering
you're there looking for a clearing
find a friend at the other end who will blow your bubble gum

come on, come on
don't get me wrong
you must have thought i'm someone else
'cause you can't handle it, handle it
i'm not a product on the line
handle it; handle it when i am staring in your eyes
i'm not your man

i saw you're searching for another 'cause i wouldn't be your lover
i never said that i'd lie in your bed
and i love sleeping alone
oh you, it's true,
i see your face; it's just a little blue
well i'm sure you'll come to terms when the ladies know the words then i know you'll sing along

come on, come on
don't get me wrong
you must have thought i'm someone else
'cause you can't handle it, handle it
i'm not a product on the line
handle it; handle it when i am staring in your eyes
i'm not your man

    General CommentAwwh, no one has commented on this song, it's so catchy. I think it's about a girl who really thinks she is something. This guy likes her, but she just uses him and cheats on him, and he's sick of it. I think it also suggests that she is moving to fast for him, hence the line "find a friend at the other end who will blow your bubble gum".
    And the end makes me think that when he left her, she suddenly wanted him back, and he basically told her to go screw herself.
    Mhm. :]

    General Commenti think you have the basic idea but i think it's about a record label that wanted to sign them, but at the same time they tried to change them
    i think the lover part is just a metaphor, because if you look past the surface of the lyrics a record label makes a lot more sense then a romantic relationship

    General Commentthe title also makes a lot more sense if you think of it as being about a record label

    General CommentI'm not positive. But the label thing makes a lot of sense.
