You’re sitting over there
Like you’re all cool and tough
But I can see right through you
And you ain’t good enough
I want someone real
Someone who will listen
And you glancing at me,
Doesn’t fit the description
You invite girls over
Everyday, you’re with someone else
If the choice was between you and single
Sorry, I’d rather be by myself
You play, you smile
You break so many hearts
You jerk, you never
Even liked them from the start
And now you’re trying to get me
Inside your silly little game
But sorry, boy, I’m not for sale
You should be ashamed
Every sad girl at this school
With you, they’ve each had a turn
But I’m not in the mood to join them
I’m determined not to get burned
So walk away, you foolish boy
Stop acting like you’re the boss
I’m not interested; I’m walking away
And I think it’s just your loss
You try to catch my eye
But I’m already leaving
I glance back to see your red face
Your chest heavy and heaving
I laugh my real laugh
And put on my tough face
Go, on, boy, go and try
I’m ready for the chase
You won’t ever get this catch
I’m not within your range
Maybe this’ll teach you a lesson
And your heart will break for a change

I was watching a movie where the guy was a real jerk, and I think that sparked the inspiration for this poem.
