You really don’t care,
you surely can’t dare,
and your house and your desk
look a dump.
When no one calls up
to go out for a cup
you recline in your chair
like a lump.
Your life has gone flat,
you’re verging on fat,
and you’d easily pass
for a grump.
Well, I’m in a slump
and you’re in a slump–
let’s go have some tea,
you and me.
Why would you want to be someone else
When you could be better by being yourself
Why pretend to be someone you are not
When you have something they haven’t got
Cheating yourself of the life you have to live
Deprives others of that only which you can give
You have much more to offer by being just you
Than walking around in someone else’s shoes
Trying to live the life of another is a mistake
It is a masquerade; nothing more than a fake
Be yourself and let your qualities show through
Others will love you more for being just you.
