Does Not Play Well With Others

Don’t hate me for being me,
‘Cause it’s how I’m supposed to be.
Mad or bad,
Silly or sane –
Ain’t none of your beeswax
What I’m gonna do.

 

Don’t mess with what I’m doing –
I don’t poke my nose in yours!
A little madness,
A bit of hellfire –
Whatever it is, mate,
It’ll all be good.

 

Don’t push me around;
I’m not as weak as you think.
Better watch your back,
Better think twice,
Better start running, mate,
‘Cause I will fight back.

 

You can’t bend me,
You can’t break me,
You can’t tend me,
You can’t mend me –
‘Cause I’m my own man,
I got my own style,
Don’t go breaking it –
You’ll regret it.

 

Stay away from me,
Get out of my face!
If you’re not with me,
Then you’re against me –
And it’s none of your beeswax
What I’m planning to do.

 

So don’t push me around;
I’m not your punching bag.
‘Cause I will give as good as I get,
I can live without a regret,
Watch it, mate; watch your back
Watch it good
‘Cause I will fight back.
