The Doggone Girl is Mine by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. (I think it is really just called "The Girl is Mine.")

It was on a cherished mix made by a dear friend in high school.

And I didn't take the quiz. I don't like self-awareness.

I am a wimp except for the middle finger one. I would give it right back to them...with 2 hands. :)Love from Ohio

Josh is right about the song.

And this quiz totally reminded me of the quizes I used to spend hours doing in Seventeen Magazine during high school.

"What can I do, girl to get through to you?
I think I love you (love you)
Baby (baby)
Standing here, baptising all my tears..."

I also do not do quizzes and do not like self-awareness.
