SONG OF THE DAY: JENNY LEWIS “JUST ONE OF THE GUYS”

I’ve always like Jenny Lewis and her music. I first heard her name when she made a guest appearance on The Elected band’s album “Sun Sun Sun.” I’ve never been a die hard fan but I respect her work and I really like this single off of her new album Voyager. Her sound has always reminded me of California canyons late 60’s pop. The thing I like most about this song besides the catchy chorus is the arrangement. Not sure if Jenny herself or someone else is responsible for that but cheers to the responsible person, they did a fantastic job.

“No matter how hard I try, to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me
No matter how hard I try, to have an open mind
There’s a little voice inside that prevents me”

“Just One Of The Guys”

All our friends, they’re getting old
But the girls are still staying young
If I get caught being rude in a conversation
With a child bride on her summer vacation

No matter how hard I try, to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me (oh, oh, oh)
No matter how hard I try, to have an open mind
There’s a little voice inside that prevents me (oh, oh, oh)

How I live, it got me here
Locked in this bathroom, full of tears
I have begged for you, and I have borrowed
But I’ve been the only sister to my own sorrow

No matter how hard I try, to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me (oh, oh, oh)
No matter how hard I try, to have an open mind
There’s a little clock inside that keeps ticking

There’s only one difference between you and me
When I look at myself all I can see
I’m just another lady without a baby

No matter how hard I try, to be just one of the guys
There’s a little something inside that won’t let me (oh, oh, oh)
No matter how hard I try, to have an open mind
There’s a little cop inside that prevents me

I’m not gonna break for you
I’m not gonna pray for you
I’m not gonna pay for you
That’s not what ladies do
