I’ll Keep Being Me

April 3, 2021

You don’t want to rock the boat
You always fall in line
It’s easy to fit in
When you never have a spine

I’ll keep being me
With my kooky company

The nerdy misfit freakshow
And our crazy crackpot crew
The weirdo wacko zany ones
Just doing what we do

Do what other people do
Affirming the consensus
Eliminate what makes you true
Until you lose your senses

I’ll keep being me
With my kooky company

The nerdy misfit freakshow
And our crazy crackpot crew
The weirdo wacko zany ones
Just doing what we do

Rumble dumble day
Go outside and play
The sun is shining bright
Bask in your delight

Wimble wamble wee
Investigate a tree
Run around till dark
Explore your local park

Dimble damble door
Open up your pores
Listen to the world
It sings to boys and girls
