"Mannequin" as written by Robin Tadross, Harvey Mason, James Fauntleroy and Britney Spears....
Always talking around this,
He wants me,
I get things, everything I wanted,
My own way, your time, goldmines,
Loose guys, on my backless, dresses, exes.

I cannot help myself, I'm just doing what I do,
Got my heart set, do anything that I want so thank you,
I like it and I do what I like,
And if you do what I like, then you'll like it,

If you wanna just
Scream,
Scream your lungs out,
If you wanna just
Cry,
Cry your eyes out,
I'm not doing that

That's what I'm about.

You can cry your eyes out of your head,
Baby, baby,
I don't care, I don't care,
I don't care, I don't care,
You can cry-cry-cry again-gain-gain,
My face like a mannequin,
(Scream)
Mannequin, yea I did,
It again and again,
You can cry-cry-cry again-gain-gain,
My face like a mannequin.

You told me more than he did,
And then you were frozen, imposin',
There's no way you want me,
Watch me, trust me,
Can't impress me,
I'm not changing, I'm just

I cannot help myself, I'm just doing what I do,
Got my heart set, do anything that I want so thank you,
I like it and I do what I like,
And if you do what I like, then you'll like it,

If you wanna just
Scream,
Scream your lungs out,
If you wanna just
Cry,
Cry your eyes out,
I'm not doing that

That's what I'm about.

You can cry your eyes out of your head,
Baby, baby,
I don't care, I don't care,
I don't care, I don't care,
You can cry-cry-cry again-gain-gain,
My face like a mannequin,
(Scream)
Mannequin, yea I did,
It again and again,
You can cry-cry-cry again-gain-gain,
My face like a mannequin.

My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.

Watch me,
(Watch me, watch me, watch me,
Watch me, watch me, watch me,
Watch me, watch me, watch me,
Watch me, watch me, watch me,
Watch me, watch me)

If you wanna just
Scream,
Scream your lungs out,
If you wanna just
Cry,
Cry your eyes out,
(I'm not doing that)

That's what I'm about.

You can cry your eyes out of your head,
Baby, baby,
I don't care, I don't care,
I don't care, I don't care,
You can cry-cry-cry again-gain-gain,
My face like a mannequin,
(Scream)
Mannequin, yea I did,
It again and again,
You can cry-cry-cry again-gain-gain,
My face like a mannequin.

My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.
My face like a mannequin.

    Song MeaningFantastic song! Easily one of my favorites on the album. I read that it was supposedly about her mother.

    General Commentif you wanna see it in a different light,
    "futuristic sex cyborg" seems to sum it all up.
    its a pretty chill song thats tells a story.
    the emotionless in her voice during "i dont care." shows the lack of emotion in a robot.
    nice!
    cant wait to see this as a music video. lol!
    in a deeper definition,
    i agree with Be frank! most def.

    My InterpretationI think its almost definitely about Kevin moreso than her mom. Especially after hearing what she had to say about him on 'For The Record' it seems clear as day. I like how she's using that situation and twisting it to empower herself.

    Song MeaningThe song is about her doing what she wants and not having no feelings when someone says something about it. LOL! It's so funny / cocky / bossy.
    A perfect "I don't give a F*** song". lol.

    She doesn't care about what people say about what she's doing (or not doing).
    Her face just stays emotionless...LIKE A MANNEQUIN!!!
    Genius song Britney!!
    She's also credited as a writer on this one by the way:)

    By the way, one of the lyrics are wrong.
    In the second verse it's not "I JUST..." it's "ADJUST".

    "You told me you lonely,
    Can't hear you, can't feel you,
    I'm frozen, I'm posing,
    There's no way you move me,
    Watch me, dress me,
    Can't impress me,
    I'm not changing. ADJUST."

    Since she's gonna do whatever the hell she wants no matter what anyone says, she tells them that she's not changing and they need to ADJUST to what she's gonna do. LOL!
    So b*tchy! lol.

    The lyrics are very hard to catch. Good job to whoever did the current lyrics. I think that was the only mistake I caught.

    General CommentOkay so is it just me, or does it sound like she's saying "love is like a mannequin" insted of "my face is like a mannequin"? because although "my face" works better and is more appropriate for the song, I'm hearing "love".
