Cover me in diamonds and bliss
Cover me in rose petals and mist
Cover me in kisses
But don't forget those nasty hisses
Close the door, don't make me to blame
Cover me from shame.
We are what we are
They're so fond of saying
But some of us, we're below par
I don't know what about they're braying.
I do what I have to do
I am who I want to be
But could you stop, for just a while, and stand with me, too
Could you smile, instead of frown, at me?
I'm not a criminal
I'm just me
Don't be hypocritical
When you've not said two words to me
Don't shoot those dastardly looks my way
I'm not inflatable
I've got bills, like you have, to pay
And I'm human, too, so breakable.
If you can't be my friend
Don't be my enemy
Remember that rules can bend
Without breaking, and stick and stones, can hurt me
And, yes - Oh, yes! - words can, too
They can make me so blue
So don't you
If you can't look in the mirror, at the end of the day
Don't you throw those words at me, all in a slew
What a stew!
Because I'm not your enemy, and I'd hate for you to have to pay
The price I've had to pay
To be me
To be free.
