Mezz (McKagan Duff)

I wanna be the worlds best lover I wanna be on every cover I wanna be the flying man in the Cirque du Soliel But I'm me, and that's all I'll ever be I wanna be like Serpico, or a freedom fighter Down in Mexico, a black man in the fifties south, See what fake white freedom was all about I wanna `recon' in vietnam, shoot a ball like Gary Payton, I wanna talk to Jesus Christ, a-bomb the extreme right But i'm me, and that's all I'll ever be. And I see there are some things I don't need (chorus) If it was up to me, I'd be those things and So much more If it was me, I'd talk to God and kick down every door I really wanna save the planet, end all wars and destructive habits, I wanna raise hell with the c.d.c, see if all is being done about that fuckin disease, I wanna be like Randy Johnson, play guitar like Mick Ronson, wanna set my sights on art collections, give homeless people a new direction but I'm me, and that's all I'll ever be and I see, there's some things I don't need. (chorus) Solo If it was up to me I'd break down Let the poor have it all ban all war, if you please and end disease (chorus)
