ALL I WANNA BE IS ME
It's pretty elementary - It all started way back when in
Ms Lucille's fifth grade class - Got in trouble for the notes I passed to
Becky Lou - Sweet as honey - Said she liked me 'cause I was funny
She was the center of my attention - Had some thoughts that I couldn't mention
Got a note sent home about every week sayin'
That boy needs to figure out what he's gonna be
But I liked bein' bad - And so I told my dad... Hey!
All I wanna be is me - Footloose and fancy free
Easy come - Easy go - Big star in my own show
Not a care in this old world - Best guy to my best girl
You're gonna get just what you see - Cause all I wanna be is me
No diplomatic aspirations - To work at the United Nations
Or be the next man on the moon - Takes me a month just to clean my room
I'm just a normal guy - Do whatever it takes to just get by
Never gonna be Bill Gates-If you're lookin' for a genius you're in the wrong place
I'm not trying to lead the world to peace
No Nobel Prize - Just a shake and fries for me
All I'm tryin' to say - It don't take much to make my day... Hey!
Makin’ my way through this old life with a couple good friends and a beer on ice
In no hurry - Got no worries - Livin' right - Let's party tonight... Hey!
