I want a radio Like you listen to I want new boots Brown, like you wear I want a car To drive like you I want a hand Just like yours Why does my hand not work Let me see your hands You have two hands I want to be like you Did you go see your father I wish I could see my father I want to be like you I want a girlfriend You have a wife I want to be like you I want a job You work here I want to be like you You have a vacation You can see your grandma I want to see my grandma I want to be like you You have friends I want you to be my friend I want to be like you Please don’t yell at me I’m sorry I made a mess But I am just like you
