"I'm Not Dead" "Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)"

"'Cuz I Can" is a song written by P!nk, Max Martin, and Lukasz Gottwald for P!nk's fourth album, I'm Not Dead, from which it was released as a promotional single for the album. It was one of the five album tracks that leaked onto the Internet in July 2005.

CompositionEdit

Lyrically, the song is about P!nk playing by her own rules, and boasting about her "bling," a contrast to the anti-consumerist content of "Stupid Girls," another track on the album. Referring to "'Cuz I Can," she called herself "a walking contradiction" and "a hypocrite sometimes." The song is thematically similar to P!nk's 2008 single "So What."

ReleaseEdit

The track was sent to radio stations in Australia on October 4, 2007. It debuted at number 33 on the Australian ARIA Digital Track Chart and peaked at number fourteen. The track debuted at number 39 on the New Zealand Singles Chart, becoming the first single to chart on download sales alone. It peaked at number twenty-nine.

Music videoEdit

The official music video for the song was first seen on Australian television on October 5, 2007, and footage of a live performance from the I'm Not Dead Tour. The performance, which was the show opener for the tour, featured dancers dressed like monks and with only underwear beneath their robes.

Lyrics Edit

Woo hoo rock and roll, raw raw
All right I drink more then you
And party harder than you do
And my car is faster than yours too

P-I-N-K
P-I-M-P
I'm back again I know y'all missed me

I'm so so so sick
Can't handle it
Yeah, I talk shit
Just deal with it

My rims are 23 inch
And they're black on black
No, they're not his
Diamonds all over my teeth

You can try and try
You can't beat me

So I'll cash my checks and place my bets and hope I'll always win
Even if I don't I'm fucked because I live a life of sin
But it's all right
I don't give a damn
I don't play your rules
I make my own
Tonight, I'll do what I want
'Cuz I can
(Ice cream, ice cream, we only want ice cream)

You know I'm rare
You stop and stare
You think I care
I don't

You talk real loud
But you are saying nothing cool
I can fit your whole house in my swimming pool

My life's a fantasy
That you're not smart enough to even dream
My ice is making me freeze

You can try and try
You can't beat me

So I cash my checks and place my bets and hope I'll always win
Even if I don't I'm fucked because I live a life of sin
But it's all right
I don't give a damn
I don't play your rules
I make my own
Tonight I'll do what I want
'Cuz I can
(Ice cream, ice cream, we only want ice cream)

Uh
Break it down
It's tough time out here, you know what I'm saying?

Yeah I'm super sick
People say I'm much too chick
Come and kiss the ring
You just might learn a couple things
Trying to school you, dog
Ruff ruff ruff ruff ruff ruff ruff
I'm your worst nightmare
Bring it we can take it there
What do you care?

So I cash my checks and place my bets and hope I'll always win
Even if I don't, I'm fucked because I live a life of sin
But it's all right
I don't give a damn
I don't play your rules
I make my own
Tonight I'll do what I want
'Cuz I can
(Ice cream, ice cream, we only want ice cream)

So I cash my checks and place my bets and hope I'll always win
Even if I don't, I'm fucked because I live a life of sin
And it's all right
I don't give a damn
I don't play your rules
I make my own
Tonight I'll do what I want
'Cuz I can
(Ice cream, ice cream, we only want ice cream)
