I am not senorita
I am not from your tribe
In the garden I did no crime
I am not your senorita

I am not from your tribe
If you want inside her well
Boy you better make her raspberry swirl
Things are getting desperate

When all the boys can't be men
Everybody knows I'm her friend
Everybody knows I'm her man
I'm not your senorita

I don't aim so high
In my heart I did no crime
If you want inside her well,
Boy you better make her raspberry swirl

    General CommentQuoted from Storytellers:

    "In some of my relationships with a few of my women friends, I play a certain role. Heh, this is really getting in...I know, I hope my father's not watching this. He just doesn't know what to do. The straight-jacket's coming. But you know I always told my dad - you know, gays, lesbians, he just has to get used to it. One of the neices and nephews is gonna be one, he's just gotta get ready. So what I said was ah to Beenie, who's the love of my life. My husband understands this, that we're married. We're absolutely married. And I adore her with all my heart. And she's dated some idiots. And I hope you're watching. I want you to know what I think of you and in another life, I'll absolutely kick your ass. And I'm going to kick it right now actually, because this is for her and I'm in love with her."

    I think Tori has always loved Beenie (Nancy Shanks), and been her protector of sorts "everybody knows I'm her man." Beenie was treated badly by men in her past. In my opinion... This song is a big f-you to the jerks, and a welcome to any man who can step up to the plate and treat Beenie with respect.
