Yes, But...

Please don’t tell me how I’m 'sposed to be
If you want to stick around what you get is what you see that’s right,
There ain’t no changing me
If you want to love me, you gotta let me be.

Now I once knew a woman who couldn’t keep a man,
once she got her fingers on him she’d start her precious plan
To turn Mr. Pretty Good into Mr. Right
She’d say do this way and not that way all thru the day and night
There was always something bout him she thought she could refine
She was always disappointed, when he couldn’t tow the line And he’d say….

Please don’t tell me how I’m 'sposed to be
If you want to stick around what you get is what you see that’s right, (that's right)
There ain’t no changing me (There ain’t no changing me)
If you want to love me, you gotta let me be.

I once knew a man oh he thought he was so cool
he said I’ll take you as you are, I don’t have too many rules
Then he’d tell me to be humble while he’d tell me to be proud
He’d say I was too quiet, then he’d say I was too loud
He was a walking contradiction, couldn’t see with his own eyes
You can’t say that you accept me when all you do is criticize And I said….

Please don’t tell me how I’m sposed to be
If you want to stick around what you get is what you see that’s right, (that's right)
There ain’t no changing me (No, no, no... No)
If you want to love me, you gotta let me be.

Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t try to be your best
You just gotta pick your battles and let go of the rest
Because it’s hard to let your guard down in any other place
but home is where the heart is, it’s where you should be safe
If you try to change the one you’re with into somebody else
if you want them to be just like you, then go live by yourself…

Please don’t tell me how I’m sposed to be
If you want to stick around what you get is what you see that’s right, (that's right)
There ain’t no changing me (There ain’t no changing me )
 (There ain’t no changing me )
If you want to love me, you gotta let me be.

Now I got me a man who thinks our differences are sweet
He knows I say silly things, he knows I’m just not that neat
But because he rarely make suggestions or demands
I do them cause I want to, I do it cause I can
If you do that for me, I will do the same for you
And we will live together with a love that is so true Because….

Nobody’s telling me how I’m sposed to be,
That’s why I stick around, cause I like what I see
That’s right, (That’s right) nobody’s trying to change me
(Nobody's changing me, there ain't no chanigng me)
That’s why you get to love me, because you let me
That’s why I get to love you, because I let you
That’s why you get to love me, because you let me Be me,
let me be me,
let you be you,
let me be me
