Don't Wanna Be Like That (Rock Goes To College: Joe Jackson (2) 14/01/1980)

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
Well maybe it's time for getting out of line
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 want to be like that
Don't want to be like that

Now the cocaine dens says welcome
You're in college now not in school
But I'm sorry to say that I'm going out to work
While you're going to the swimming pool
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
I don't want to be like that
Don't want to be like that

Some people think that they know about some girls
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 t
Heir 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

Take me away I said take me away
I don't want to be like that
Don't want to be like that yo
