"Rich Kids" as written by and Megan Alexanda Washington....
I met you under neon, all of the lights were flickering,
off and on.
Everybody's coming down or throwing up or sleeping round.
I remember why I left this town.
I don't wanna dance with you.
No, I don't wanna dance with you.
I don't wanna dance with you oh.

Charlie I think you were right, this bluebird in my heart it sings,
and sings all night and all the rich kids freak me out,
You know they gave me quite a fright!
Baby teeth, vampire bite.

Underneath all your clothes, I admit it comes and goes.
I dont know what I'll do, when i set my sights on you.
In the dark, see your bones. I can find my own way home.
No, I won't not tonight, I won't dance I don't feel like it.

and I don't wanna dance with you
mmm I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you so please do not ask me too no

I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you
No I don't wanna dance with you uh

I remember why I left this town
I remember why I left this

I don't wanna dance with you
No I don't wanna dance with you
No I don't wanna dance with you so please do not ask me too no

I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you so please do not ask me too no

I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you so please, please do not ask me

I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you
I don't wanna dance with you no

    General CommentI can't believe this song doesn't have any comments! I absolutely love it.

    I think it's about growing up in a town full of fake, vain, vapid, rich, superficial brats. She's talking about not fitting in. I think it's about sleeping with one of those previously mentioned brats and feeling like she's betraying her principles. She doesn't want too but she does anyway because she's an impressionable, confused teenager. She gets sucked into the life. I think 'baby teeth, vampire bite' is talking about that sexual eagerness and inexperience. Dance may just literally mean dance but I think it's more likely she's talking about sex.

    Of course that may just be complete crap. I'm only guessing.

    General CommentWell the part about baby teeth vampire bite could be about the people being like babies and immature but they can really hurt you so they have a nasty bite.

    I never even knew that line exists but it's defintely my favourite line.

    General CommentWashington attended a private all girls high school and it was full of "rich kids" (I went there too, that's how I know)

    I think that's got a lot of influence in this song, coming to adolesence around these types of people. And the lyrics regarding dancing are reminiscent of the school dances we used to have with the other private schools.
