"I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You" as written by Reginald Youngblood, Owen Holmes, Kevin Snow, Dawn Watley and Ali Youngblood....
You are the girl that I've been dreaming of ever since I was a little girl
You are the girl that I've been dreaming of ever since I was a little girl

One,
I'm biting my tongue
Two,
He's kissin' on you
Three,
Oh, why can't you see?
One! Two! Three! Four!

The word's on the streets and it's on the news
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you
He's got two left feet and he bites my moves
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance
The second I do, I know we're gonna be through
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you
He don't suspect a thing. I wish he'd get a clue
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance

One,
I'm biting my tongue
Two,
He's kissin' on you
Three,
Oh, why can't you see?
One! Two! Three! Four!

One,
I'm biting my tongue
Two,
He's kissin' on you
Three,
Oh, why can't you see?
One! Two! Three! Four!

The word's on the streets and it's on the news
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you
He's got two left feet and he bites my moves
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance
The second I do, I know we're gonna be through
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you
He don't suspect a thing. I wish he'd get a clue
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance

One,
I'm biting my tongue
Two,
He's kissin' on you
Three,
Oh, why can't you see?
One! Two! Three! Four!

The word's on the streets and it's on the news
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you
He's got two left feet and he bites my moves
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance
The second I do, I know we're gonna be through
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance with you
He don't suspect a thing. I wish he'd get a clue
I'm not gonna teach him how to dance, dance, dance, dance

    General Commentwell...the fact that the singer says "he's got two left feet and he bites my moves" makes it sound to me like the singer is dancing with the guy to teach him, and is criticizing his dancing from a girl's perspective. And maybe also implying he would be a bad boyfriend.

    And I know the big problem is that there's a boyfriend, but the fact that the singer says "the second I do I know we're gonna be through" implies that there's a really big obvious reason why the girl would prefer her boyfriend.
