Lyrics:

Hey,
Hey hey hey hey
(Good god)
Hey
Hey hey hey hey

Well, I wear my clothes like this because I can
And I wear my hair like this because I can
And I walk around like this because I can
And I do my thing like this 'cause it's who I am

And if you're expecting me
To give you an apology
For being nothing that you're used to
Well go right on ahead and wait
Hold your breath and concentrate
Keep holding 'til your face turns blue

My road, it ain't your road but trust I know (I know just where I'm going)
My flow, it ain't your flow but trust I know (I know just how I'm flowing)
I'ma do my thing (I'ma do my thing)
Please feel free to hate and complain
I'ma do my thing
Say what you like because this one ain't gonna change
I'ma do my thing

I can't wear my clothes like you, because I'm not
I can't do my hair like you, because I'm not
I can't walk around like you, because I'm not
I can't do my thing like you, well that just ain't hot

And if you're expecting me
To give you an apology
For being nothing that you're used to
Well go right on ahead and wait
Hold your breath and concentrate
Keep holding 'til your face turns blue

My road, it ain't your road but trust I know (I know just where I'm going)
My flow, it aint your flow but trust I know (I know just how I'm flowing)
I'ma do my thing (I'ma do my thing)
So please feel free to hate and complain
I'ma do my thing
And say what you like because this one ain't gonna change
I'ma do my thing

You don't know where I'm going, and so you think I'm lost
I ain't on your page ok, so to you that means I'm off
When I dance, I dance to the beat of a drummer that you can't hear and can't see
So if I look offbeat to you, well the problem must be you, not me
Irregular but never irrellevant, unusual but never uncool
You're not cut from my cloth so you don't get me
Well, I don't get you
Either a believer of the fact that unique equals love
Am I going to fast for you? Open your mind and speed up

My road, it ain't your road but trust I know (I know just where I'm going)
My flow, it ain't your flow but trust I know (I know just how I'm flowing)
I'ma do my thing (I'ma do my thing)
So please feel free to hate and complain
I'ma do my thing
And say what you like because this one ain't gonna change
I'ma do my thing
