Nellie McKay Change The World Lyrics

Last updated:

I wake up
I am bored
to my pictures I implore
should I go or stay
what should I be today
make a leap
go to sleep
should I cry or should I weep
where should I go from here
am I hetero or queer
oh, self discovery
what joy it is
I need recovery
caffeinated fizz
should I run
should I hide
happy pill or suicide
contribute or refute
have a kid
then call it cute
oh, self -esteeming, in suburbia
my shelf is teeming
a pet named Chia

(chorus)
oh what should I say
what should I pray
who would care if I went ahead
and punched the wall
oh what do I care
what should I wear
what do I care
what does it matter
if I change the world at all

I listen to some rap
I give myself a slap
come on use the pain
drink up from the rain
just arise unsupervised
healthy wealthy you know wise
dance around
make a sound
let yourself become unwound
god, I'm so German
have to have a plan
please Ethel Merman help me out this jam
ding a ling
ring a ding
anything just do something
feelin' dense
on the fence
civil disobedience
come on now's the hour
go and deviate
can't you feel the power
hope you appreciate

(chorus)

OK Dr. Phil
ready for my pill
flex my psychic muscle
guess we'd better hustle
people are dying now
do something you ugly cow
sorry for myself again
me, my wallet and my men
Jesus I love you
Frank I love you, too
hit the road together
get out of the zoo
no exit
just a pit
apocalyptic and a zit
hurry now
pack your bags
adieu you mall scallawags
got my sneakers velcroed
snap my bookbag on
goodbye little zipcode
how can I go wrong

(chorus)

what does it matter
if I change the world at all
