The Lyrics

Ooh, yeah!
I've got a problem
That ain't no lie,
I don't know who I am, oh!
I remember they told me
I'm a white guy,
But now they need my blood
To see what I'm made of!

Every little step I take
I dance with a shuffling gait.
I can be a human beat box;
I'm such a fox!
Baby, when the lab results
Come back, I'll be under attack-
I gotta be black!

I got no choice, y'all,
But to move on, you know,
The evidence is clear because
The truth was out there
When I cornrow braided my hair,
But my biggest fear
Is losing Britney Spears!

There'll come a day
When my fans will have my back
I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
I gotta be black!

My soulful voice
And all my funky moves
Don't wanna lose it
'Cause I'm 'NSYNC, y'all!
Screw those DNA (DNA)
Results under attack!
Who cares? (Who cares?)
