"She's Not Me" is a song off Madonna's eleventh studio album Hard Candy.

Background

In this song Madonna admonishes a former partner for taking up with someone new. Q magazine May 2008 asked Madonna about the song's hook. The international superstar replied: "That's actually Pharrell's (Williams, one of Candy Shop's producers) line. I agreed to it. That's my follow-up to Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive.'" "We were listening to a lot of Debbie Harry records. It's kind of Debbie Harry meets Gloria Gaynor 'I Will Survive.' Pharrell came up with the hook so we concocted a story about the ultimate jilted lover."

Composition

The song features funky beats and ends with a remixed version of the beats.

Lyrics

I should have seen the sign way back then
When she told me that you were her best friend
And now she's rolling, rolling, rolling
And you were stolen, stolen, stolen

She started dressing like me and talking like me
It freaked me out
She started calling you up in the middle of the night
What's that about?

I just want to be there when you discover
When you wake up next to your new lover
She might cook you breakfast and love you in the shower
The flavor of the moment, cause she don't have what's ours

She's not me
She doesn't have my name
She'll never have what I have
It won't be the same
It won't be the same

I should have seen the sign when you were here
Under a different light, it's all so clear
She was stealing, stealing, stealing
And now you're feeling, feeling, feeling

She started dyeing her hair and
Wearing the same perfume as me
She started reading my books
And stealing my looks and lingerie

I just want to be there when you discover
You wake up in the morning next to your new lover
She might cook you breakfast and love you in the shower
The thrill is momentary, cause she don't have what's ours

She's not me
She doesn't have my name
She'll never have what I have
It won't be the same
It won't be the same

She is licking her lips
And she's batting her eyes
She's not me
She's got legs up to there
And such beautiful hair
She's not me
Oh, devoted for life
Make a beautiful wife
She's not me
If you spend some more time
I guarantee you will find
She's not me

I know I can do it better

If someone wants to pimp your style
And hang with you a little while
And make off with all the things you like
You're gonna have to watch it

She's not me
She doesn't have my name
She'll never have what I have
It won't be the same
It won't be the same

Never let you forget
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be

Never let you forget
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be

[Pharrell's rap]

She's not me
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be
She's not me
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be
She never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be

Never will be...

She's not me and never will be
Never will be...
