“In or Out”


(Sometimes I wonder why people concern themselves about the silliest of details.  Hope this makes it clear. Enjoy Ani! ;))

In Or Out”

guess there’s something wrong with me
guess I don’t fit in
no one wants to touch it
no one knows where to begin
I’ve got more than one membership
to more than one club
and I owe my life to the people that I love
he looks me up and down like
he knows what time it is like
he’s got my number like he thinks it’s his
he says, call me, Miss DiFranco,
if there’s anything I can do
I say, It’s Mr. DiFranco to you
somedays the line I walk
turns out to be straight
other days the line
tends to deviate
I’ve got no criteria for sex or race
I just want to hear your voice
I just want to see your face
She looks me up and down like
she thinks that I’ll mature like
she’s got my number like it belongs to her
she says, call me, Ms. DiFranco
if there’s anything I can do
I say, I’ve got spots I’ve got stripes, too
their eyes are all asking are you in,
or are you out
and I think, oh man, what is this about?
tonight you can’t put me up on any shelf
’cause I came here alone
I’m gonna leave by myself
I just want to show you the way that I feel
and when I get tired you can take the wheel
to me what’s more important
is the person that I bring
not just getting to the same restaraunt
and eating the same thing
guess there’s something wrong with me
guess I don’t fit in no one wants to touch it
no one knows where to begin
I’ve more than one membership
to more than one club
and I owe my life to the people that I love
-Ani DiFranco
