If I satisfy you, if you satisfy me, once the course has been set,
gonna need all the help I can get but
You just gotta be you, and I just gotta be me, I can't classify you, you can't pacify me.
We can't make it at all, you won't even take my calls.
I just want to be loved and you just gotta be free.
I'll smile and tell it to the world, you just gotta be.
Pardon me for saying what a price you've been paying.
What more can I say, you might feel different some day.
If it matter to you, it still matters to me,
you'll find me by the bayou thinking wicked thoughts of you.
I just want to be strong, you just gotta be wrong. I can't clarify you, you can't verify me.
I can't make it by stealth, you won't even share the wealth so
you just gotta be you and I just gotta be me.
And I will tell that to the world, you just gotta be.
With a gratified mind, I'll be on the highway just as soon as I can.
Where there's a will, there's a way so until then I just want to be me, and you just gotta be.
