Testo della canzone Don't Wanna Be Like That (Joe Jackson), tratta dall'album I'm the Man

Don't Wanna Be Like That - Joe Jackson

Okay, let me tell you 'bout
Some of the things I'm going through
I know you think that you know
But how do you know that what you know is true
But well, maybe it's time for gettin' out of line
What it seems like the done thing to do

Some people get crazy
Some people get lazy
Some people get hazy
Some people get out

Take me away, I said take me away
I don't wanna be like that
Yeah, take me away, I said take me away
And I don't wanna be like that

Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that

Now the cocaine club says welcome
You're in college now not school
But I'm sorry to say that I'm going out to work
While you're going to the swimmin' pool
But where the L.A. sun can turn your brains
To scrambled eggs it's true

Some people get crazy
Some people get lazy
Some people get hazy
Some people get out

Take me away, I said take me away
And I don't wanna be like that
Take me away, I said take me away
I said, I don't wanna be like that

Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that

Some people think that they know about some girls
Well, some people think they're cool
And some girls think they know about me
Some girls think I'm some fool

And American girls that put their tongue in your ear
When they talk on the telephone
And the stars only come out at night
When the press and photographers moan and groan

And the Playboy centerfold leaves me cold
And that ain't 'cause I'm a fag
So you playboys can just go play with yourself
That's your style, 'cause that's a drag

You get crazy
Get crazy
I just wanna get
Just wanna get out, hey

Take me away, I said take me away
And I don't wanna be like that
Yeah, take me away, I said take me away
And I don't wanna be like that

Yeah, take me away, I said take me away
I said, I don't wanna be like that
Take me away, I said take me away
I said, I don't wanna be like that

Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
Don't wanna be like that
