I do not want your number,
nor your energy.
You’re trying to force a reaction
just because you’re feelin’ me.
You take my “no” for a yes
and steady try to impress
but you can’t appease a woman
who don’t see you.
There’s a difference between showing
interest and doing the most.
You answer questions I never asked,
and it’s a turn-off when you boast.
So let me stop you right here;
you’re talkin’ jobs, but no career.
I’m focused on my future and you’re concerned about fun.
Are you surprised that I have standards that you can’t meet?
Common sense should’ve told you that you could never compete.
You’re salty, I can tell;
but before you take this L,
stop steering into lanes that you can’t drive in.
