Let Me Be Me lyrics – Crew Cuts

Let Me Be Me lyrics – Crew Cuts

Started out in Brooklyn back in ’96
When the nets were still in jersey but we loved the Knicks
I didn’t grow up in a family that hugged and kissed
But don’t say they ain’t love their kids;
We ain’t some Republicans
And all I wanted was a pool in my back yard
They say we couldn’t have fun, didn’t have jobs
They say we couldn’t pay rent couldn’t slack off
Couldn’t pack up and take the vacation out in Nassau
Got a private education with the future Goldman Sachs cats
Even tried to duck the bill collector on some Aflac
They got rich stacks named Garfield, that’s fat cats, that’s fat cats
Sammy, Frank, and Dean I got my rap pack my rap pack
So don’t worry ’bout my accent
You live your life in past tense
You know some girls, y’all just friends
I know some girls, we have sex
And we all know girls that do drugs
And we all know girls that just won’t
But I know they waiting for me when I come home

[Chorus]
I don’t wanna be a legend, no
I just wanna get to heaven, oh
I just wanna do me right now
Wanna do me right now
I don’t wanna be a killer, no
I just wanna keep it real-a oh
I just wanna do me right now
Wanna do me right now
Let me be me

They tell me make it out my home before it’s too late
Love my mom and dad but I don’t want ’em as a roommate
Got a kitchen fulla food and liquor like I’m Lupe
But y’all fake as fuck like toupees,
So I see the world in Blu-ray
High Definition, I’mma Tivo it
I wanna save the moment and show you I’m devoted
Preach, I’m on my knees like I Tebowed it
I’m just a young kid celebrating like reloaded
So pardon the following interruption from this rap shit
I’m just trying to make a million dollars off my passion
That’s it
Guys call me “Coach” now, girls call me “Captain”
Feeling like Van Gundy ’cause my team was fucking Magic
But back when I ain’t had shit, no food up in my cabinets
They just try to slow me down but I won’t play in traffic
Got passed it, ain’t a beauty contest or a pageant
But I got these people flipping like gymnastics

I don’t wanna be a legend
I just wanna get to heaven
I just wanna do me right now
Wanna do me right now
I don’t wanna be a killer, no
I just wanna keep it real-a oh
I just wanna do me right now
Wanna do me right now
Let me be me

So let me fly away
Making my mistakes
It’s harder to stay all in the same place
You never say you’re gonna change
Let me float away let go of my weight
‘Cause all my mistakes don’t have to stay
Doing all that I can don’t let it fade

I don’t wanna be a legend
I just wanna get to heaven
I just wanna do me right now
Wanna do me right now
I don’t wanna be a killer, no
I just wanna keep it real-a oh
I just wanna do me right now
Wanna do me right now
Let me be me

[2x]
[Kanye West (Sampled from “New God Flow”)]:
Naww man, mad people was frontin’
Aww man, made somethin’ from nothin’
Made somethin’ from nothin’
Made somethin’ from nothin’
Naww man, mad people was frontin’
Aww man, made somethin’ from nothin’
