“If I had a mind to,
I wouldn’t want to think like you
and if I had time to
I wouldn’t want to talk to you.

I don’t care What you do
I wouldn’t want to be like you
I don’t care what you do
I wouldn’t want to be like you.

If I was high class
I wouldn’t need a buck to pass
and if I was a fall guy
I wouldn’t need no alibi

I don’t care what you do
I wouldn’t want to be like you
I don’t care what you do
I wouldn’t want to be like you.

Back on the bottom line
diggin’ for a lousy dime
if I hit a mother lode
I’d cover anything that showed.

I don’t care what you do
I wouldn’t want to be like you
I don’t care what you do
I wouldn’t wanna
I wouldn’t want to be like you
I wouldn’t want to be like you”.
