All I Really Want to Do

I ain't lookin' to compete with you,

Beat or cheat or mistreat you,

Simplify you, classify you,

Deny, defy or crucify you.

All I really want to do

Is, baby, be friends with you.

.

No, and I ain't lookin' to fight with you,

Frighten you or uptighten you,

Drag you down or drain you down,

Chain you down or bring you down.

All I really want to do

Is, baby, be friends with you.

.

I ain't lookin' to block you up

Shock or knock or lock you up,

Analyze you, categorize you,

Finalize you or advertise you.

All I really want to do

Is, baby, be friends with you.

.

I don't want to straight-face you,

Race or chase you, track or trace you,

Or disgrace you or displace you,

Or define you or confine you.

All I really want to do

Is, baby, be friends with you.

.

I don't want to meet your kin,

Make you spin or do you in,

Or select you or dissect you,

Or inspect you or reject you.

All I really want to do

Is, baby, be friends with you.

.

I don't want to fake you out,

Take or shake or forsake you out,

I ain't lookin' for you to feel like me,

See like me or be like me.

All I really want to do

Is, baby, be friends with you.

.
