Tradition puts guilt on your chest when they bring you down by the things they've said, 'cause you are you and the things that you do reflect on the generation set ahead. Remember the things you are taught 'cause people look up to you.
(Chorus)
I don't wanna be like you, wanna be me, myself, and I hope you see right through all the things you see on the outside. When I come home late at night don't lower your head 'cause everthing is all right.
I like to go out on Saturday night, hang out with my friends and do it up right. You say we're wrong, confused, and rebel...say we need to find the man upstairs, but if you could get through those condemning eyes you would find that he is right inside.
(2nd chorus)
I don't wanna be like you, wanna be me, myself and I hope you see right through all the things you see on the outside. I don't wanna be like you.
