Doth I Protest Too Much
by Alanis Morissette

I'm not threatened, by every pair of
Legs you watch go by
I don't cringe when you stare at women
It's just a thing called guy
I don't notice your sideways glances
Or where your loyalty lies
I'm secure and out of me
It's hard to get a rise

I'm not jealous
I don't get moved by much
I'm not enraged
Not insecure as such
Not going insane
Rational stays in touch
Doth I protest too much?

I'm not tortured by how oft you're busy
'Cause I've got things to do
I'm not disappointed
About how you don't miss you me
'Cause I don't need you to

I'm not needy
I don't get clingy much
I'm not scared
I'm not afraid as such
I'm not dependent
Rock solid, stays in touch
And doth I protest too much?

So much energy to prove to you
Who I can't possibly be
So much energy to prove to you
I'm not who you hate for me to be

I'm not saddened
And I don't miss you
'Cause I have moved on too
I'm not concerned about your new lover
'Cause I'm a new lover too

I'm not depressed
I don't get down that much
I'm not despondent
I am not dark as such
I'm never sad
Keep chin up, stays in touch
And doth I protest too much?

I'm not jealous
I don't get moved my much
I'm not enraged
Not insecure as such
Not going insane
Rational stays in touch
And doth I protest too much?
