lyrics

I'm spinning like a fan,
Melting like the ice,
Running like water with no river damn in sight.

I'm chirping like a bird,
Heavy like a leaving trunk,
Half-empty like the moon, but I'll be full by the time I'm done.

Who are you to tell me that's not right?

I'm rollin' like the ocean,
Rockin' like a chair,
I'm the slowest little tortoise, but I'm going to beat that hare.

Who are you to tell me that's not right?

Some people float and sting,
Others they bob and weave.
It may seem a simple thing,
But like a man I live and breathe.

Who are you to tell me that's not right?
