I want to be like Captain Kirk
get up everyday and love to go to work
Don't want to be like Mr. Spock
want to kick out the jams and rock the block

I just want to feel good
I don't want to hurt nobody
I just want to get a good time out of my life

I want to be like Casius Clay
I want to change my name and go all the way
I want to be like Marilyn Monroe
be loved by everybody that I know

I just want to feel good
I don't want to hurt nobody
I just want to get a good time out of my life

I want to be like Jesus Christ
keep the party moving giving good advice
I don't need to be no Superman
I just want to do the best I can

    General Commenti think the chorus sums this song up, he just wants to have a good time in his life without hurting anyone, but throughout the song he is naming examples of people he would like to be like, he eventually comes to trying to emulate Jesus Christ, realizes that being just like Jesus would be impossible and concludes that he should just do the best he can.
