The Lyrics

You Are Not What I Want

I’m not thrilled, it’s so frustrating,
Things are out of control,
From the start since we’ve been dating,
It’s excruciating!

You’d better just go (do-do-do)
Though I need a man (do-do-do)
But my heart’s not set on you (but my heart’s not set on you)
You’d better just go (do-do-do)
And you must understand (do-do-do)
I must find somebody new,
Yes I must, I must find somebody new.

You are not what I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
The one I need (the one you need?)
Oh no, indeed.

You’ve not shown me affection,
There’s no reason to stay,
So for you, there’s one direction,
On your way.

I’d better just go (do-do-do)
As I’m not your man, you’re not my man,
Who can keep you satisfied.
I’d better just go (do-do-do)
As you’ve made it clear, I’ve made it clear,
Even though I really tried, don’t you know?
Yes I know, you hurt inside.

You are not what I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
The one I need (the one you need?)
Oh no, indeed.

You are not what I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
The one I need (the one you need?)
Oh no, indeed.

You are not what I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, sorry,
Not the one I want (not what you’re wanting?)
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
The one I need (the one you need?)
Oh no, indeed…and fade
