And I can do the Frug
I can do the Robocop
I can do the Freddie
I cannot do the Smurf

And I can hate your girl
I can tell you that she's real pretty
I can take my clothes off
I cannot fall in love

And I can do the Frug
I can do the Robocop
I can do the Freddie
I cannot do the Smurf

And I can watch TV
I can shuffle off to Buffalo
I can do a backbend
I will not call you back

And I can start a book
I can make some mac and cheese
I can sleep twelve hours
You'll never see my eyes

And I can do the Frug
I can do the Robocop
I can do the Freddie
I cannot do the Smurf

And I can hate your girl
I can tell you that she's real pretty
I can take my clothes off
I cannot fall in love
You'll never see my eyes
I will not call you back
I cannot do the Smurf
I cannot fall in love
I'll never fall in love
I cannot fall in love

    General CommentTwee-pop often uses overt sweetness or cuteness or frivolousness to mask very deep melancholy. I think that's what Jenny's doing here.
    To me, this is a stylistic choice meant to aid in the juxtaposition of these mundane activities with the very real and painful "I cannot fall in love, you'll never see my eyes..." This is self-preservation. It's feigned sweetness masking some serious cynicism and fear. This is a heartbreaking song.

    What a range Jenny has. She made a very conscious decision as her career progressed to confront her sadness and to sing more openly and honestly about her vices and her hang-ups.
    There's a clear shift from the resigned cynicism of youth (The Frug) to the more constructive and necessary use of music as a tool to confront our demons as we age (More Adventurous, I Never, Acid Tongue, Just One of the Guys). Both are valuable, because they speak to us at different stages in our life.
