  • Jimmy says, "Do this.."
    I say, "I don't want to!"
    Jimmy says, "Do this.."
    Jimmy says, "Do this.."
    I say, "I don't want to!"
    Trying to make up my own mind
    Got my own direction to find!
    Yeah, I know Jimmy's cool and everyone at school
    Usually does what Jimmy does, without thinking - just because

    Jimmy says, "Try this.."
    Jimmy says, "Try this.."
    I say, "I don't need it!"
    Jimmy says, "Try this.."
    Jimmy says, "Try this.."
    I say, "I don't need it!"

    Sometimes it's just no fun
    To feel like you're the only one
    Who doesn't go along, when things seem wrong
    But they're not my friends if they don't see
    That I don't like people pushing me!

    Hey man, what's the matter with you?
    Oh, come on! Everybody's going!
    Chicken!
    Nobody's gonna know!
    What are you, scared?
    Everybody does it! Come on!

    I might hang out with Jim
    But I don't need to be just like him
    Got to listen to myself
    Cause you can't let someone else
    Always make your move for you!
    Got to find out what you want to do!

    Jimmy says, "Try this.."
    Come on and try this!
    I say, "I don't need it!"
    Jimmy says, "Come on, try this.."
    I say, "I don't need it!"
    Oh Jimmy, Jimmy
