"Everybody Wants To Be Like You" as written by Shawn Leigh Moltke, Darrin O'brien, Robbie Patterson and Glenn Marais....
Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
But everybody wants to be like you
And it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
But everybody wants to be like you

I would really hate to be her
Think they love her when they see her
When she's gone she just don't know
What they say
She inherited the drama
It was passed down from her mama
And her daddy he would only drink wine

Only if she came around
But she's slowly goin' down

Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
But everybody wants to be like you
And it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
But everybody wants to be like you

She looked a whole lot older
Yet nobody ever told her
You would never know
That she was sixteen
And as far as I remember
She was standing on the corner
Just the type that loved
To be on the scene

Only if she came around
But she's slowly goin' down

Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
But everybody wants to be like you
And it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
But everybody wants to be like you
Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
But everybody wants to be like you
And it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
But everybody wants to be like you

Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
But everybody wants to be like you

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, and I think it's about a girl that thinks she's all that, but nobody really likes her and everyone talks about her behind her back, yet everybody wants to be her because she's good-looking and popular. Anyway, that's just my take on it.
