"What It's Like To Be Me" as written by Wade J. Robson and Justin R. Timberlake....
Do you know what it's like?
Come on, come on

Baby tell me
Do I look like the kind of girl
That you want to take home
Want to make me your own
Do you even know what I like
Just what I'm living for
What I adore

Baby, take the time to realize I'm
Not the kind to sacrifice
The way I am
So if you want to be my man (baby)

Walk a mile in my shoes
Do me right or I'm through
Can't you see that
If you want to stay around (I'm telling you)
You've got to figure me out
Take your time or you lose
This is my game, my rules
And I can see, obviously
Baby you don't know
What it’s like to be me

Do you know what it’s like?
Do you know what it’s like?

Don't you get it twisted boy
I want you too
But you got my heart to win
Before I let you in
And this deceives you baby
I'm not the average lady
I need someone to love

Baby, take the time to realize I'm
Not the kind to sacrifice
The way I am
So if you want to be my man (baby)

Walk a mile in my shoes
Do me right or I'm through
Can't you see that
If you want to stay around (I'm telling you)
You've got to figure me out
Take your time or you lose
This is my game, my rules
And I can see, obviously
Baby you don't know
What it’s like to be me

Baby, get to know me
Then you can show me
That your love for me is true
I'll give you everything
That a girl can give
Don't you want to be my man?

Walk a mile in my shoes
Do me right or I'm through
Can't you see that
If you want to stay around (I'm telling you)
You've got to figure me out
Take your time or you lose
This is my game, my rules
And I can see, obviously
Baby you don't know
What it’s like to be me

Walk a mile in my shoes
Do me right or I'm through
Can't you see that
If you want to stay around (I'm telling you)
You've got to figure me out
Take your time or you lose
This is my game, my rules
And I can see, obviously
Baby you don't know
What it’s like to be me

    General CommentI like this song..it's really well written..though I like other bands..everyone is just a little mean to Britney Spears. I mean she had the resources to become world-wide and platinum by the time she was 15..could you do that?

    General Comment"And I can't see off of your sleeve"....hahahaha!
    Sometimes I don't understand how people's minds work.
    She clearly says "And I can see, obviously".

    General Commentfrislce, is there any reason as to why you are being such an attention-seeking idiot?

    I'm surprised you have made the effort to come on this site, search for this song and comment on it just to say you hate her.
    It's actually pretty lame of you.

    Anyway, powerful song.
