Lyrics of Like it or not

I don't want to live like everyone else
You can't tell me I'm like anyone else
I'm not something stored on a shelf
Like it or not
That's what I think of myself

Don't try to give me no hand me down
My smile is an upside down frown
I won't take it lying down
I'm not like anyone in this old town

When you were down and out
You would always come to me
You always thought I could set you free
Don't try to use me for your gain
Don't expect me to cure your pain

I don't want to be like everyone else
Cause I'm not like anyone else
I'm not a painting on the wall
I'm not a number that you can call.  Not at all.

You say you want me to settle down
And stop all of my running around
And do everything you want me to
Well there's something I want to say to you

I'm not like everyone else
I'm not like anyone else
I can't be put up on a stage
I can't be locked up in a cage.  No I can't.

But you know I love you true
I would do anything you asked me to do
Confess my shortcomings If you want me too
But there's one more thing I want to say to you

I'm not like anyone else
I don't want to be like everyone else
I'm not a trophy up on a shelf
Like it or not, that's what I think of myself
Like it or not, that's what I think of myself
