about

A high school anthem: Just do you.

lyrics

I’m a second guesser, I’ve seen better days
And I’m not trying to mess up your little space
I’m a leopard spotted cheetah rocking penguin overalls
Cause this whole world needs something new
Who knew?
I’m not one to complain I’m just trying
To do my own thing

But hold the phone
That finger you’re pointing at me
Is so blown, way out of proportion
You can let it out, troubled orphan
It’s a shame they look to me when I say,
“Don’t do what I say, do your own thing.”

I’m doing my own thing
Tuning my own strings, yeah
Just try and stop me

-----

Higher than birds, not too steady
But not a cloud in sight,
It’s absurd, are you ready
For something you ain’t never seen? That’s me
I’ll be your plans for this evening, remind me,
What did you want me to do for you?
Now meet my drunken fist

This is my own thing
I’m tuning my own strings, yeah
Just try and stop me

Doing my own thing (Don’t do what I say)
Tuning my own strings (Do your own thing)
Doing my own thing (Don’t do what I say)
Tuning my own strings (Do your own thing)
Doing my own thing, yeah (Don’t do what I say)
Just try and stop me
