"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

    My InterpretationHonestly, I think this song is about a girl being in love with another girl. Maybe she's friends with the other girl and her boyfriend. I think the boyfriend kind of wants tips on how to please the girl (or really how to dance) and the narrator doesn't want to teach him "how to dance with her". You know, she dislikes that they're together enough, she secretly wants them to break up, so why would she help them?
    Possible there is/was a bit of a thing going on between the narrator and other girl and she just thinks if she helps him it'll all be over with the girl. Like maybe the narrator keeps thinking about how bad for her the guy is and how she wishes he would just "get a clue" and realize what's going on between them...
    I actually completely understand this feeling just more from a
    "You are the guy that I've been dreaming of ever since I was a little girl...
    "I'm not gonna teach her how to dance with you"
