I Refuse

When I was just a little boy…
They used to tell me
Put your clothes back on
Stop eating glass
Get outta that pond
I turned to look at them
And all at once they knew
It was on cuz I had just refused

Yeah I refused, I refused
What the hell did I know?
I was amused
Yeah I refused
And look at where I am today
You can be like me
Just refuse

Then I went to high school
Perfected being a damn fool
The I gradi-a-ted somewhere in my class
21 and no money
They said pay the rent or move
So I looked them in the feet
And I refused

Yeah I refused, I refused
What the hell did I care?
I was amused
Yeah I refused
And look at where I am today
You can be like me
Just refuse

Then I made a record
Yeah, same old story
Music Row said I dunno
We like you but you’re fat
I said who needs ya
Let’s get some pizza
I got nothing left to lose cuz I refuse

Yeah I refused, I refused
What the hell did I care?
I was amused
Yeah I refused
And look at where I am today
You can be like me
Just refuse
