Lyrics
I wear my clothes like this because I can
I wear my hair like this because I can
I walk around like this because I can
And I do my thing like 'cause this who I am (this who I am)
If you are expecting me to give you an apology
For being nothing that you used to, used to
Well go on right ahead and wait
Hold your breath and concentrate
Keep holding till your face turns blue

My road, it ain't your road but trust I know just where I am going
My flow it ain't your flow, but trust I know, I know just how I'm flowing
I’ma do my thing
I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing
Please feel free to hate and complain
Said I'm a do my thing
I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing
Say what you want cause this one ain't gonna change
I’ma do my thing
Ha ha ha ha ha ha

I can't wear my clothes like you, because I'm not
I can't do my hair like you, because I'm not
I can't walk around like you, because I'm not
I can't do my thing like you, well that just ain't hot
And If you are expecting me to give you an apology
For being nothing like you used to used to
Well go on right ahead and wait
Hold your breath and concentrate
Keep holding till your face turns blue

My road, it ain't your road, but trust i know, i just where I'm going
My flow it ain't your flow, but trust I know, I just how I'm flowing
I’ma do my thing
I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing
Please feel free to hate and complain
Cause I'm a do my thing
I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing
Say what you like cause this one ain't gonna change
I’ma do my thing

You don't know where I am going, and so you think I am lost
I ain't on your page, OK so to you that means I'm off
When I dance, I dance to the beat of a drummer you don't hear and you can't see
So if I look off beat to you, well the problem must be you not me
Irregular but never irrelevant, unusual but never uncool
You're not cut from my clothes
You never get me, or I don't get you
Either A believer of the fact
That unique equals love
So if I'm going to fast for you
Open your mind and speed off

My road, it ain't your road, but trust i know just where I'm going
My flow it ain't your flow, but trust I know, just how I'm flowing
I’ma do my thing
I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing
Please feel free to hate and complain
I'ma do my thing
I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing
And say what you want cause this one ain't gonna change
I'ma do my thing

So much joy! Brilliant song to use for the awkward family expectations. There were so many smaller lovely bits, like the laundry soccer practice. The ending with the two different waves was great.
