Toy Soldier

I don't want all this attention
I'm not for
Entertainment purposes
I'm not a toy that you can
Wind up when you feel

I'm no "click your heals and take a bow"
I don't want that
You don't control me
I'm not your toy soldier
You can't boss me

I don't go "Hut two three four!"
I go "ABAB maybe a C"!
You can't keep me in check
I check my own deck
I'm no toy soldier

I'm no "click your heals and take a bow"
I don't want that
You don't control me
I'm not your toy soldier
You can't boss me

I'm only a girl
I'm not a toy
Why is this so hard
To understand
I'm just a girl

I'm no "click your heals and take a bow"
I don't want that
You don't control me
I'm not your toy soldier
You can't boss me

I don't salute
When you want me to
I'm not going to say
"Sir, Yes, Sir"
You're not my master

Like I said:
"I don't want all this attention"
"I'm not your toy soldier"
"I don't go 'Hut two three four!' "
"You don't control me"

I was watching this girl at school and noticed that lots of boys like to mess with her. This is why I wrote this song. To that girl.
