"Not A Virgin" as written by Matthew Wilder, Michael A Elizondo and Annie Decatur Danielewski....
I'm not a virgin anymore
I just thought you should know
Darlin' I've been around
Yeah, I've been up and down your block

In fact, I have been all over town
Down by the lake
And underneath the table in my living room
Outside by the blue blue moon

You can call me what you will
Call me a slut call me a jaded pill
But darlin', I've got your number now

I'm not a virgin anymore
I've been taken
I've been hung up
I get down and start it over again

I've been open
And I've been closed like a book
And burned down like a written sin
I just thought you should know, my darlin',

Before we begin
I'm not a virgin anymore

Just thought you should know
Before you let another lie
Go through those crooked little teeth
I don't think you want to start that shit with me

Much better yet
Tell me something dangerous and true
Oh yeah, that looks much sexier on you

Careful what it is you say
'Cause I can see right through you
On a cloudy day and
Darlin' I think you want to play

I'm not a virgin anymore
I've been taken
I've been hung up
I get down and start it over again

I've been open
And I've been closed like a book
And burned down like a written sin
So if you want to play dirty,

My darling, I'm gonna win
I'm not a virgin anymore

Been there done that
Say what?
Get the hang of it
Get screwed

I screw you I had a whole lot of fun with it
I've had enough now so you better take a bow
It's gonna be a new experience
if you want to play with me

Daisy chains and maryjanes
Fairy tales cannot fool me now

I just thought you should know.

Yeah Right.

Whatever!

I've been taken
I've been hung up
I get down and start it over again
I've been open
And I've been closed like a book
And burned down like a written sin

Hell, I've been divided
Out of my mind and reinvented again
I've been ignited and then uninvited
So honey, you break it up
I'm gonna put it back together again

I just thought you should know my darling
Before we begin

I'm not a virgin anymore

    General CommentPart of why this song is fun is that it is deliberately over the top. "If you want to play dirty I'm gonna win" is at the heart of it ... it's more of a bragging/challenging thing than anything else.

    General CommentThis is actually based on a message Poe left on her moms answering machine once saying "It happened fast, not like i thought it would be, it didnt take very long for him to make a criminal of me, mom...I'm not a virgin anymore!" or something, lol cant remember it exactly. But i think it heard it on a radio show interview or something.

    General CommentThis is a great song. It makes me feel totally empowered. Poe is challenging the stereotype of the innocent female, and she does it so well! Girls can have fun, too. Also, to NicoleInWonderland's comment, there are a lot of vocal recordings of Poe's father on the album. If you read the inside cover of the album, she explains that she found these tapes of her father's lectures and things after he died. That is where the name "Haunted" comes from. Anyway, great song, great album.

    General CommentI've always seen it as more about having control over a guy/relationship in general than plain out sex. She sees through the bullshit. You can't trick her with the lies anymore because she has been there quite a few times and already knows how most people put up a front to get what they want. Saying she's not a "virgin" is to say that when you're naive, you can get tricked into a lot of things because you're inexperienced. She's saying if you're going to try playing any games with her, it's going to be like playing with fire because she's not a "virgin" anymore and knows the shit some people make up to emotionally and physically screw with a person.

    General CommentI think the song it's self is a double standard. She isn't a Virgin by the means of sexuality. But this of the life the Poe lead...she is not innocent the the Cuelities of life. I think that once her eyes have been opened that innocence, and sexuality...she realizes that she isn't a virgin.

    General CommentYeah... I don't see why some people try to find so many hidden meanings. This song is clearly straight in your face, it's about getting jiggy with it.
