2. That’s Me

Written by: (B. Andersson / S. Anderson / B. Ulvaeus)

Are you sure you wanna hear more
what if I ain’t worth the while
not the style
you’d be lookin’ for
if I’m sweet tonight
things look different
in the morning light
I’m jealous
and I’m proud
if you hurt my feelings
I’ll cry out loud
I’m Carrie
not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
that’s me

Are you sure you wanna hear more
would I be the one you seek
mild and meek
like the girl next door
don’t you realise
I may be an angel in disguise
it’s lonely
to be free
but I’m not a man’s toy
I’ll never be
I’m Carrie
not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
that’s me

I don’t believe
in fairy-tales
sweet nuthins in my ear
but I do believe
in sympathy
that’s me, you see

Are you sure you wanna hear more
won’t you have a drink with me
just to see
you’re not really sore
I can’t help my ways
I’m just not the girl
to hide my face
I’m Carrie
not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
that’s me

There’s a special love
like an eagle
flying with a dove
I’ll find it
in the end
if I keep on searchin’
but until then
I’m Carrie
not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
that’s me
