"Marilyn Monroe" as written by Daniel James Pringle, Ross N...
I can be selfish
Yeah, so impatient
Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe
I’m insecure, yeah I make mistakes
Sometimes I feel like I’m at the end of the road

I can get low I can get low
Don’t know which way is up
Yeah I can get high, I can get high
Like I could never come down

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can’t handle my worst
You ain’t getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)

Its like all the good things
They fall apart like,
Like Marilyn Monroe
Truth is we mess up
Till we get it right
I don’t want to end up losing my soul

I can get low I can get low
Don’t know which way is up
Yeah I can get high, I can get high
Like I could never come down

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can’t handle my worst
You ain’t getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)

Take me or leave me
I’ll never be perfect
Believe me, I’m worth it
So take me or leave me! (So take me or leave me)
So take me or leave me! (So take me or leave me)

Call it a curse
Or just call me blessed
If you can’t handle my worst
You ain’t getting my best
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)
Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt? (felt felt felt)
Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt (felt felt felt)

    General CommentI can be selfish, yeah so impatient
    Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe
    I'm insecure, yeah I make mistakes
    Sometimes I feel like I'm at the end of the road

    I can get low, I can get low
    Don't know which way is up
    Yeah I can get high, I get high
    Like I could never come down

    Call it a curse, or just call me blessed
    If you can't handle my worst you ain't gettin' my best
    Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt, felt, felt, felt

    General CommentMaybe the song is about Marilyn's affair with Kennedy. He was ashamed of her, denied their relationship, her bad, slutty side which would people think of if they understand about their affair. So she decided "if you can't handle my worst (bad things people would think about them) you ain't gettin' my best (her love)".
