The Lyrics

An employee tells his boss that no one wants to be like him.
Now, I’m a guy who’s not jealous of
Those special VIPs
Cuz I’ve seen those snobs
All over my job
And that’s what’s been bothering me
I gotta tell you, boss-man
I’m sick of you flaunting your wealth
So you’ll just up and stop
Give that old act a drop
If you know what’s good for your health

Cuz it’s true
Who wants to be like you?
Who would wanna walk like you
Talk like you
It’s nothing new
Someone like me
Would never be rich and snooty too

* Scatting intermission *

Now, don’t get me wrong, my boss-man
I’ll make it clear to you
What I really seek
Is a vacation week
To make my dreams come true
Don’t you be selfish, boss-man
I need it, you know I do
Make it good and done
Then I’ll be gone
And I won’t have to look at you

* Nonsense scatting *

It’s true
Who wants to be like you?
Who would wanna walk like you
Talk like you
It’s nothing new
Someone like me
Would never be like someone like you
Ooh, yeah!
I’d never be like someone like you
One more time!
I’d never be like someone like you!
