BE.POP

in and out of fashion

resting on the shelf

there is room for passion

I’m walking by myself

out of step

they tell you what to think

and how to be and how to sing

don’t do this 

and don’t do that’

but I can’t resist a flight of fancy

if you think that this is wrong

don’t listen to this song

and let me say what I want to

play ‘cause I want to

be rap, be jazz, be soul, be jive

always in and out of fashion

resting on the shelf

there’s room for expansion

I keep walking by myself

though out of step

to be rock, be folk, be bop, be pop

say what I want to

play ‘cause I want to

be country, be reggae, be blues, be punk, be funk, be house

be rhumba, be salsa, be samba

‘why don’t you stick to one style

you’ll never be played on the radio

singles rule our times

’blah, blah ...

‘give people what they want

but don’t do this

don’t do that’

but I’m disobedient

so I’ve got to

say what I want to

play ‘cause I want to

be... (everything :))
