05. Wannabe

by Paul Colman Trio


Go on boy run your-own-show!
Says that old voice in my head.
You donít need anybody but yourself!
Why donít ya take that fruit from the tree of life ,
And bake a hot apple-pie?
And serve it out give everybody a big slice!
Serve it out!

And I donít wannabe
Just a pawn in your game
And like a bird in a cage
I donít wannabe
Like a house on the sand before the waves

Youíre no good boy
Youíre just the sum, of all your mistakes!
So pack your bags Iím taking you on a guilt trip
Through the valley of shame

I donít wannabe
Like a flickering flame
On Jim Morrisonís grave
I donít wannabe
Like a blinding mist before the day

I donít wannabe (yeah)
Just a constant victim in a therapy chair
I donít wannabe (yeah)
Like a broken record singing nobody cares
Yeah do you care?

So Iím starting again
And Iím back with old friends
Whoíve seen the good and the bad
From beginning to end
And Iím feeling the love
Iím receiving the grace
And I love to see old hairy legs just put in his place

Guitar solo
Come on now!

I donít wannabe
A perpetual child whoís only happy onstage
I donít wannabe
In a never ending masquerade

Cos I wannabe
Free as a bird
And I wanna be like a house on the rock
And I wanna be virus free
Just like a Macintosh© yeah

I don't wannabe
I don't wannabe
