Nelly Furtado - One-Trick Pony Lyrics




[Talking:]
You say, you're identical to none
but you're identical to some, who wants to be a some? Not Me

I am not a one-trick pony
I am not a one-trick pony
I really feel no one can own me
I really feel nothing can hold me

Nobody can control me
Nobody can conform me
Nobody can disown me
Nobody can ignore me

So slow down
One-trick pony

I am not a one-trick pony
I am not a one-trick pony
For you i will not dance
For you i will not prance

And where I was last
I'll never be at
And After that
I've already passed

So slow down
And hear this sound
One-trick pony

Yeah, you do it for a price
I can see it in your eyes
See that role was never mine
cause i don't want to stand in line
See how that one-trick story goes
If she weren't on time you'd never know
cause a one-tick pony steals the show

You're Just a Pony

So back down
To the ground
And chill out

Girl, you better shape up, girl, you better shape up
Yeah the ride is so so so so sofast
Yeah, you better shape up
Yeah, just keep your chin up
No half ass...no half ass

One Trick Pony
Just ride ride ride [x2]

    I’ve recently dug deep into Nelly Furtado’s discography and just learned of this brilliant song. I cannot stop listening. It’s so complex yet so simple! The melodies just float through my ears and bring me strength and passion. Nelly deserves so much more credit for her musical genius self.

  18. Oyuki Casanova

    2018?? 💗😍🔥🎶

    Mike O'Keeffe

    Here ))

  19. Yuma N

    I love this album but not my best. My best favorite album of her is her 1st. Folklore was too dark for me. Turn Off the Light was match to this one and Fresh Off the Boat was match in the 1st album.

  20. Somesaymisery

    this is still an amazing song. actually, the whole album is amazing. it has such a unique sound that to this day i haven’t heard anywhere else... at least not in the mainstream. it’s such a shame the world wasn’t ready for it when it first came out. i think it’s her best album.

  21. Kate Moraes

    Que delícia de música!

  22. Professor Hamamoto

    First time I ever heard a five-string open back banjo loop on a pop tune years ago and it still works. And is that a mandolin solo @3:00? Dig the cinematic opening, too. Whoever arranged/produced this tune is a genius.

  23. Adrien Nurmimaki

    crazy how this song is so beautiful

  24. tmoore2010

    This was my only favorite song from Nelly. She s always had good pop music, but it wasn't for me- except this song. I can smell the environment of another time hearing it from over 13 years ago.

  25. fernando contreras

    Una de mis canciones favoritas de este álbum

  26. Sandy Sunflower

    I love this traditional album so much...what a wonderful piece of work. still my favorite after years.

  27. CaitlinK nee Welch

    + Thanks +

  28. andrew turvill

    wow 13 years ago...cant believe how long ago this was out. i used to play and play and play this, try and explode...

  29. Cesar Pérez Muñoz

    Simplemente grandioso este álbum...

  30. Harukaze ni naru

    I remember getting this album summer 2004 while on vacation in Thailand. I can't remember how many times I listened to this album, it's been so long..

    pam gyang

    I listened to this album on repeat. Over and over. ❤️❤️

  31. Wilson Robles

    Grew up with this music...! The best music ever...!

  32. Cristopher Feliphe Ramos

    My 17's "I'm not a One Trick Pony"!

    <3 Lovely <3

  33. Bengali

    Bela Fleck rocks on banjo.

  34. Herman Bogaers

    Bought this cd years ago. Loved it and still do.

    pam gyang

    Me too!

  35. Emily Nasson

    her best album, by far.

    mikebtko

    Emily Nasson Nelly Furtado did her homework!!! Released November 23rd. Britney Spears was hitting bimbos/mimbos with Toxic. Nelly Furtado hit us with an International Adventure. It's such a creative journey. And I'm the first to admit it, I'm a music snob. The songs have so many influences. And are the best of so many lands. For such an incredible original collection of songs...

    Michael Orozco

    agreed, loved this one not so much the others

    cellophaneboy

    Michael Orozco whoa nelly is incredible too :) very similar sound but more upbeat and fun

    W. Lester

    I was so butthurt about Loose. Nelly Furtado, for Whoa Nelly and Folklore, is one of my all-time favourite artists. But I have to admit that music like those albums had is a privilege...and I guess eclectically inspired pop music that is pure joy and wonderment to listen to doesn't pay the bills.

    W. Lester

    @mikebtko Ok I totally get where you're coming from, and I pretty much agree. But aside from this comparison, you gotta admit Toxic is one hell of a song.

  36. Yenny Ayala

    for me, this is her best abum...then just tried to blend in with the market =/

    Fanny Loveless

    @Yenny Ayala Agree

  37. Iñigo Retana

    This album is irrepetible ..

  38. Antonio R

    In assoluto il mio album preferito di Nelly.Non ho più trovato queste fantastiche sonorità ne l'uso dei strumenti musicali i questo modo ad opera ( allora) del marito. 

  39. Bray Zap

    This song has like the best folk/dance kind of beat , undescribable what genre Nelly is, she does so many things so well. This and Explode favorite songs off Folklore. First CD my mom bought me in 2000 was Whoa, Nelly! , never looked back, grew up with the great shit.

  40. José Campos

    I'll always love this song and this album!

  41. Jarrad Williams

    I don't understand why this album was a commerical failure and got negative reviews. Loose was a masterpiece too even though it was way different from what she used to put out, but still a great album.

    mikebtko

    Jarrad Williams 4 million

    mikebtko

    Jarrad Williams she really did her musical homework, it's absolutely gorgeous! And intelligent, so many influences to create such an original inspiring music collection!

    Dany Sahne

    It was successful in Europe. Even the singles were hits.

    ForgottenSouls666

    It’s not a commercial failure amongst the international populace. My Inkan blood can worship her effort... the overlords who happen to be Juda have changed the course of Blues to spray painted hairy clowns with attitudes who any Other real gangsters could instantly kill...

  42. Nando Guerra

    ♥_♥

  43. lonewolf colin

    even though loose was at my time of childhood and i enjoyed it i still love this album i was like in 3rd or 2nd grade i think and when i was in 4Th grade loose was out beautiful times

  44. quiet talker

    I never tire of this song ! The musicians , the singing , the production .. the whole package is just so well put together !

  45. LuisXY

    Does anyone else miss the old Nelly Furtado? I do =(

    Ralf Hsl

    LuisXY me too

    Luong Chien

    The old ?

    ForgottenSouls666

    Luong Chien she sold out to pop and hip hop genre cuz it’s easier to sell... there’s no room for exploration or experimentation with your overlords who happen to be Judas.. that’s for another campfire story if we live that long ;3

  46. Mosaic Bird

    For you I will not dance.
    For you I will not prance.
    <3 <3 <3

  47. LeDiskoLove99

    @POLAROIDSNAP I fully agree! = )

  48. POLAROIDSNAP

    @LeDiskoLove99 she needs to come out with a new album!

  49. mszama79

    Folklore is my favorite album - all my life... I need real Nelly :( I like her new music, but this not enough...

  50. Angelo Mattos

    I really love this song. Folklore is the best album ever

  51. Geoogle Seucks

    I love Nelly... She sees through all the crap...

  52. Tranquilize06

    is this folk?
    sounds great

  53. Ana AP

    I love this track! I miss this Nelly :'(

  54. LeDiskoLove99

    I absolutely love this album. I really wish she would go back to her old style. I mean I love her either way but I think out of all of them this is her best album.

  55. fabius tube

    this is music! folklore is a masterpiece album

  56. kusjesverax

    i like 0:28 !
    xx

  57. Luca Trombetta

    I'm an italian guy and I don't understand the words said by the corister in the chorus...can anyone help me??
