You Could Be Me

This show is about to begin
The same old shit, I'll perform it again
Your Monkey Paw, your Sex & Beer
But if you think you could do better if you were up here

Then get a guitar and learn to sing
You could be me in a couple of days
Get a gig, it's easy to do
You could be me, you don't have to be you

Just get a guitar, some colorful pants
You could be me if you're ready to dance
Learn to sing ridiculous songs
You could be me, you can't go wrong

You tell me you're bored, through and through
You want something more, you want something new
You want my advice, here's what you do
Listen to me, here's what you should do

Just get a guitar and learn to play
You could be me in a couple of days
Get a gig, it's easy to do
You could be me, you don't have to be you

Just get a guitar, some colorful pants
You could be me if you're ready to dance
Learn to sing ridiculous songs
You could be me, you can't go wrong

But what'll you do in between
It's nice to have independent needs
It's nice to have parents who care
You don't want to starve while you're unaware

Get a guitar and learn to sing
You could be me in a couple of days
Find a gig, it's easy to do
You could be me, you don't have to be you

Just get a guitar, some colorful pants
You could be me if you're ready to dance
Stay up all night and sleep til noon
You could be me, I'll see you soon

Stay up all night and sleep til noon
You could be me, I'll see you soon
