"I Don't Wanna Be Like You" as written by and Deaffy Peter Baltes....
Heaven knows
Heaven knows I tried
To be like you
To be a part of the tribe

I'd rather leave it all behind
But that's alright
I'm not your average type
No Mr. Clean, hey,
I want to be me

Can't you see
I'm the exception to the rule
I know what I want
And I know I'm gonna get it
That's is why
I'm the exception to the rule
Don't push me too far
The way I am is just because

I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you
The walls can be shaking
The earth could be quaking
I still don't want to be like you

I'm hog-tied 'n' dirty
I'm tough and mean
Keep your Wall Street slickers
And the American dream

You've done me over and over
You've tried to tie me down
Why don't you step out of the shadows
Dare to roll the dice
Let it roll
And don't you push me around

Can't you see
I'm the exception to the rule
I know what I want
And I know I'm gonna get it
That's is why
I'm the exception to the rule
Don't push me too far
The way I am is just because

I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you, never ever!
The walls can be shaking
The earth could be quaking
But I still don't want to be like you

The ordinary way of life ain't for me
I do what I want and I want to be free
Never know, where I go or what I'm gonna do
Why can't you see
The only thing I know is that

I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you
If the oceans turn to desert
Hell can turn to ice
But I still don't want to be like you

I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you, no way!
The walls can be shaking
The earth could be quaking
But I still don't want to be like, you!
