"Bet She's Not Your Girlfriend" as written by and Tennant/lowe....
Whisper 'round the town,
Cause you're my friend and that's the end
For you're the only one in town
Who they will beg to hang around with
You're so beautiful and calm
But with an attitude that says:
"Hands-off, you're just not good enough"

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:

(Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Well, that says maybe, in a way, but it's okay
We are touching, while they stare in front of us
They draw away, as if to say:
"Who are these people anyway?
How dare they confront us?"

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:

(Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Oh no, no no
Oh no, no no
(Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend
Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend, oh, oh, oh Girlfriend)

I'd rather die, than satisfy their curiosity
I'm kind of shy and dry, and verging on ugly
They wonder what that I have got, that they have not
They'll never understand that none of that matters

Every boy and man feeling lonely
Can't understand why you'd be with me
Furthermore, we laugh and we draw
More attention everyday, so they say:

(Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no,
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend Oh oh oh Girlfriend
Oh oh oh Girlfriend)
Bet she's not your, bet she's not your,
Bet she's not your,bet she's not your,
(Oh oh oh Girlfriend)
Bet she's not your girlfriend, oh no

(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) Bet she's not your girlfriend
(Oh, oh, oh Girlfriend) You better make her happy

Bet she's not your girlfriend

    General Commentwhat i understand is that she's the hottest girl in town, and he's gay. She wants to stay clean, so she hangs out with this guy. He is gay, so she is safe.

    My InterpretationHe's mocking the gay pop stars who would turn up at events with a new "girlfriend" in an effect to stay in the closet. Hence "Bet she's not your girlfriend". Neil himself is gay and didn't pretend to be straight by having a "girlfriend", although it took him a while to come out.
