They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair
Work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
Oakley makes the shades that transform a tool
You'd hate for the kids to think that you lost your cool

I'mma do the things that I wanna do
I ain't got a thing to prove to you
I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot about what you think

Everyone likes to dance to a happy song (Hey, hey)
With a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along (Hey, hey)
Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the charts
Maybe if I work with him I can perfect the art

I'mma do the things that I wanna do
I ain't got a thing to prove to you
I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot about what you think

No I don't care
I don't care

I'mma do the things that I wanna do
I ain't got a thing to prove to you
I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans
Excuse my manners if I make a scene
I ain't gonna wear the clothes that you like
I'm fine and dandy with the me inside
One look in the mirror and I'm tickled pink
I don't give a hoot about what you think

    General CommentAwesome song. Its now the theme song of me. Its a big "fuck you" to people who want you to be like them.

    I'm probably the only person who can relate to this song on a relationship. A week before we broke up, she joined a sorority and I joined a punk band. Comically polar opposites

    General CommentErm the version I have sounds like this:

    They say I need some Rogaine to put in my hair
    Work it out at the gym to fit my underwear
    Oakley makes the shades that transform a tool
    You’d hate for the kids to think that you lost your cool

    I’mma do the things that I wanna do
    I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
    I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
    Excuse my manners if I make a scene
    I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
    I’m finally dandy with the me inside
    One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
    I don’t give a hoot about what you think

    Everyone likes to dance to a happy song (Hey, hey)
    With a catchy chorus and beat so they can sing along (Hey, hey)
    Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the charts
    Maybe if I work with him I can perfect the art

    I’mma do the things that I wanna do
    I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
    I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
    Excuse my manners if I make a scene
    I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
    I’m finally dandy with the me inside
    One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
    I don’t give a hoot about what you think

    No I don’t care,
    I don’t care

    I’mma do the things that I wanna do
    I ain’t got a thing to prove to you
    I’ll eat my candy with the pork and beans
    Excuse my manners if I make a scene
    I ain’t gonna wear the clothes that you like
    I’m finally dandy with the me inside
    One look in the mirror and I’m tickled pink
    I don’t give a hoot about what you think

    General CommentThe second version is the right one, the first was a prank off the forums

    General CommentI like it and at the same I kind of don't. it does give me hope that the new CD is going to be better than I thought it was going to be, though.

    General Commentyeah, the second one is the right lyrics. I hate when assholes don't look at the lyrics and just post lyrics to post lyrics.

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious that bing_redboy posted the correct lyrics not erikj. Maybe erikj hasn't even listened to the song. At least it's not like the last sneak peak, Beverly Hills. Hopefully the Red Album is better than Make Believe.

    General CommentSo apparently, Geffen heard their first cut of the album and made them go in for another session because there wasn't enough "commercial material" on the record, and this song was written in response to that. Makes sense to me.

    General CommentI HAVE HOPE!!!

    for the new album. after going through the previous two, i came close to vomiting. Its great they went back to thier pop-rock roots back in the 90s. this is only one song though, and i hope i don't hear any shit like make believe on this new album.
