Introduction: E E E E E E E E


Verse:

E                         E            [G  E]
Four little words just to get me along
          E                E                  [G  E] 
It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue and I
         E                     E       [G  E]
I keep stalling, keeping me together
                     E                        [G  A]  
People around gotta find something to say now

                    A           [G  A] 
Holding back, everyday the same
                  A                   [G  A]
Don't wanna be a loner. Listen to me, oh no
          A                 [G  A]
I never say anything at all
          A                    A
But with nothing to consider
     B        B       B        B      [G  E]
They forget my name (ame, ame, ame)


Chorus:

E       E
They call me "Hell"
E       E           [G  E]
They call me "Stacey"
E       E
They call me "Her"
E       E           [G  A]  
They call me "Jane"
               A
That's not my name
               A    [G  A]
That's not my name
               A
That's not my name
               A    [G  E]
That's not my name


They call me "Quiet Gal"
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa
Always the same
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name


Verse:

I miss the catch if they throw me the ball
I'm the last chick standing up against the wall
Keep up, falling, these heels they keep me boring
Getting glammed up and sitting on the fence now

So alone all the time at night
Lock myself away
Listen to me, oh no
Although I'm dressed up, out and all with
Everything considered
They forget my name (ame, ame, ame)


Chorus:

They call me "Hell"
They call me "Stacey"
They call me "Her"
They call me "Jane"
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name

They call me "Quiet Girl"
But I'm a riot
Mary, Jo, Lisa
Always the same
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name

E    E     E           E   A     A   A     A      [A  B]
Are, you, cal - ling, me, dar-ling?
E    E     E           E   A     A   A     A      [A  B]
Are, you, cal - ling, me, bi-rd?
E    E     E           E   A     A   A     A      [A  B]
Are, you, cal - ling, me, dar-ling?
E    E     E           E   A     A   A     A      [A  B]
Are, you, cal - ling, me, bi-rd?

That's Not My Name - The Ting Tings
That's Not My Name - The Ting Tings
"That’s Not My Name" is the third single by British duo The Ting Tings from their debut studio album We Started Nothing. Vocalist Katie White states that the song was written "with me ranting about my frustrations with the record industry." The song was originally released as a double A-side with "Great DJ" by independent record label Switchflicker Records on 28 May 2007. After heavy promotion and support from BBC Radio 1 and the NME, the single was re-released individually on 12 May 2008 on Columbia Records.

"That's Not My Name" went to number one in the United Kingdom on 18 May 2008, seeing off competition from well-established acts like Rihanna, Madonna and will.i.am. The following week, however, the single was replaced by Rihanna's single "Take a Bow" at number one. The song was a sleeper hit in North America for about five months before finally becoming a Top 40 hit on the charts. The single has sold over a million digital copies.
