That she is not mine
She is just another girl
Looking for a gold mine

I said she’s not my girlfriend 
She’s yet another kid
Looking for a father to befriend

She’s one of the many girls
Who knows not what they seek in a man
But just to belong; a hopeless craze

She’s another one of them
Who prefers them hard and en classe  
Not those looking on to Bethlehem 

She’s just another of their set
Ruled by biceps
And an Abs forming the whole six set (pity I have none)

I said she’s one of them
Who squeal at the sight of Bentley
Wishing they had a guy with such mayhem

She’s yet another dreamer
Who thinks am not good enough
And  will rather fall for a smooth schemer

Maybe she’s right in her conceit
But my mum says otherwise
Whose claim then shall I greet

As long as you know she’s not mine
Maybe then you’ll know I’m single
