  1. Be Like Them

Lyrics

If I took a shotgun to my brain

Could I write a song as good as Kurt Cobain

I don’t know if I can if I did

But I’ll try it anyway

If you were shot down in New York City

Would you be like John Lennon?

If you sang about peace while playing the keys

Would they say you’d be like him?

You want to be a legend

I don’t know if I could but I think it’s understood

You want to be like him

They want to be like them
(Pause)

If you played a guitar so one of a kind

And could make an axe scream

Like some women of mine

If you drank a bunch of shit

And choked on your vomit

Would they say you’d be like Hendrix?

You want to be a legend

Don’t know if you can

Just trying to be the man
Cm
You want to be like them

They want to be like them…

CHORUS

They just what they want to

Be Like Them

That’s all that they want to be

When nobody wants to be themselves

Who knows what they want from me

Wanna-be’s, just want to

Be like Them

So what they want from me

When nobody wants to be themselves

Who know what they want from me

Wanna-be’s, just want to

Be Like Them

Just Be Like Them



If I screamed thug life with a tat on my pack
And I repped Westside like I’m the king of all rap
If I got shot down so mysteriously
Would that make me a little like Tupac?
For real though,
If I touched every single chick I see
Would you say I’m a little bit like Easy e?
Especially, coming down with the HIV
But nobody wants to be like Eazy
If you feel me though
(Don’t want to be like easy e)
But some take it if I they could
They want to be like them

CHORUS

(Verse)
If I was a big star
Who got real old
Just popped a few pills
Hopped on the commode
I don’t know if I will but if I could
I would love to die like this
Want to be like Elvis
Don’t know if you would
But I would take it if I could
I want be like them
They want to be like them

CHORUS

I’d rather be myself
I’d rather be myself
