Tori Amos - Raspberry Swirl

I am not you senorita
I am not from your tribe
In the garden I did no crime
I am not your senorita
I am not from your tribe
If you want inside her
Well,
Boy you better make her raspberry swirl

Things are getting desperate
When all the boys can't be men
Everybody knows
I'm her friend
Everybody knows
I'm her man
Things are getting desperate
When all the boys can't be men
Everybody knows
I'm her friend
Everybody knows
I'm her man

I am not your senorita
I do not aim so high
In my heart I did no crime
If you want inside her well,
Boy you better make her raspberry swirl

Things are getting desperate
When all the boys can't be men
Everybody knows
I'm her friend
Everybody knows
I'm her man
Things are getting desperate
When all the boys can't be men
Everybody knows
I'm her friend
Everybody knows
I'm her man

"Raspberry Swirl" is a song written and performed by Tori Amos.

In the United States it was released as a double A-side single with "Cruel", off the same album. In Germany, Australia and the UK it was released as its own single. Two variations of an identical 12" vinyl promotional release were issued in the U.K "Raspberry Swirl" was Amos' first single to be nominated for a Grammy Award, being nominated for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance in 1999. "Raspberry Swirl" is about Amos' past relationship with a female friend and was written in response to the men in her relationships - In some of my relationships with a few of my women friends, I play a certain role. Heh, this is really getting in...I know, I hope my father's not watching this. He just doesn't know what to do. The straight-jacket's coming. But you know I always told my dad – you know, gays, lesbians, he just has to get used to it. One of the nieces and nephews is gonna be one, he's just gotta get ready. So what I said was ah to Beenie, who's the love of my life. My husband understands this, that we're married. We're absolutely married. And I adore her with all my heart. And she's dated some idiots. And I hope you're watching. I want you to know what I think of you and in another life, I'll absolutely kick your ass. And I'm going to kick it right now actually, because this is for her and I'm in love with her. So everybody, off your asses!
