"Wouldn't Want To Be You" as written by Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason, James Michael and Marty Fredrickson....
She was fifteen going to twenty nine
Daddy throw her out
Caught her doing a line
She still dancing to the same old song

Preacher's son, class president
Say I throw it all away
The night we met for a thrill
But you were wrong

We was just a learnin'
No flags were burning
Two kids just coming of age
And don't try to teach us
You're never gonna reach us
You and I, we ain't the same

I wouldn't want to be you
Left stranded
The last one standing
When it all comes crashing down
I wouldn't want to be you
Left hiding
With your world colliding
And your walls come a tumbling down
So put yourself in your shoes man
Would you want to be you?

I think it's funny how you spend your time
Tried to look good in other peoples eyes
Ah Hell, if they only knew
You said three words, only one is true
The other two words they words, they all about you
I see right through and,

I wouldn't want to be you
Left stranded
The last one standing
When it all comes crashing down
I wouldn't want to be you
Left hiding
With your world colliding
And your walls come a tumbling down
So put yourself in your shoes man
Would you want to be you?

We was just a learnin'
No flags were burning
Two kids just coming of age
And don't try to teach us
You're never gonna reach us
You and I, we ain't the same

I wouldn't want to be you
Left stranded
The last one standing
When it all comes crashing down
I wouldn't want to be you
Left hiding
With your world colliding
And your walls come a tumbling down

I wouldn't want to be you
Left stranded
The last one standing
When it all comes crashing down
I wouldn't want to be you
Left hiding
With your world colliding
And your walls come a tumbling down
Oh, put yourself in your shoes man
You wouldn't want to be you
Oo, I wouldn't you want to be you
