"I Don't Wanna Change The World" as written by Randy Castillo, Zakk Wylde and Ozzy Osbourne....
Standing at the crossroads, world spinning round and round
Know which way I'm going, you can't bring me down
Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in

I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Tell me I'm a sinner I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and he don't like you
You telling all the people the original sin
He says he knows you better than you'll ever know him

I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me

You know it ain't easy
You know it ain't fair
So don't try to please me
Because I really don't care

Don't tell me stories 'cause yesterday's glories
Have gone away, so far away
I've heard it said there's a light up ahead
Lord I hope and pray I'm here to stay

Tell me I'm a sinner I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and he don't like you
Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in

I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me

I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me

    General Comment"Let me live my life and you live yours." That's the general theme. Don't preach or push your religion or ideals on me, and I won't push my music or lifestlye of you. It's aimed at the pious religious right attempting to press their values onto society as a whole. Generally it says to be yourself and live your own life without impeding onto the lives of others.

    General CommentIf Ozzy doesn't try to change the world, then why should they try to change him? Today most people have a vision of the ideal person. Obviously there are people (like Ozzy) who want to be noncomformists. If people just leave him alone the way he is, hes not going to mess with them.

    Great song...

    General CommentThere are so many people out there, generally conformists like OzzyGurly stated, that look on other people that aren't like them in a demeaning manner, and consider them either inferior or insane. If you don't fit into their ideal personality type, they will try to bring you down and tear you up. I think Ozzy probably got a lot of this, especially from parents, and just got sick of it. Like he said, he's not trying to change the world, he's not trying to get other people to do what he wants, he's just being himself. I don't necessarilly think that he's making a definite effort to be a nonconformist, that's just the way he is. You stay out of my business, and I'll stay out of yours.
    The lyrics "I spoke to God this morning and He don't like you" basically mean that nobody is perfect, and anyone that's trying to convey that they are should step down from their high horse. He's made his peace with God, he's comfortable with who he is, and that's all that matters.
