Original LP version

Should have listened what your mother said
Should have listened what your father told you to do
But you always did just what you always wanted to do
Now you end up here singing in a gilded cage
And for half your life you were wishing you were half your age
Lady let it lie
Lady let it lie

It's hard putting down family roots
When you're living in a mobile home
But there's always blood even in a rolling stone
And you squeezed me hard for the white collar dream
You woke up to a tie dye lifestyle and it's choking me

All the boys want to be all the girls want to be all the boys
I don't wanna be me no more
All the boys want to be all the girls in this turnaround world
I don't wanna be me no more
Lady let it lie
Please, lady let it lie

They once said I was a rising star declaring me a bright contender
When it all worked out I was just a young pretender
I could never disagree if you said you were dissatisfied
Why you got to take it out on a guy who tried?

All the boys want to be all the girls want to be all the boys
I don't wanna be me no more
All the boys want to be all the girls in this turnaround world
I don't wanna be me no more

Maybe there's something left, something worth fighting for
Something out of all this mess that's worth building on
Maybe we can start again, maybe give it one more try
Do we just walk away, maybe let it fade and die?

All the boys want to be all the girls want to be all the boys
I don't wanna be me no more
All the boys want to be all the girls in this turnaround world
I don't wanna be me no more

All the boys want to be all the girls want to be all the boys
I don't wanna be me no more
All the boys want to be all the girls in this turnaround world
I don't wanna be me no more
I don't wanna be me no more

I don't wanna be me no more

All the boys want to be all the girls want to be all the boys
I don't wanna be me no more
All the boys want to be all the girls in this turnaround world
I don't wanna be me no more

All the boys want to be all the girls want to be all the boys
I don't wanna be me no more
All the boys want to be all the girls in this turnaround world
I don't wanna be me no more

I don't wanna be, don't wanna be me no more
Me no more
Me no more

Me no more
...
Me no more
Me no more
...
