Step up - step up (step up)
Step up - step up (step up)
Step up - step up
Step up

Fall back, take a look at me and you'll see
I'm for real, I feel what only I can feel
And if that don't appeal to ya, let me know
And I'll go, cause I flow better when my colors show

And that's the way it has to be, honestly
Cause creativity, could never bloom in my room
I'd throw it all away before I'd lie,
So don't call me with the compromise
Hang up the phone,
I got a back bone stronger than yours

La, la, la, la - la, la…
La, la, la, la - la, la… (la, la, la)
La, la, la, la - la, la… (yeah, yeah, yeah, yea…)

[Chorus]
If you're trying to turn me, into someone else
It's easy to see, I'm not down with that
(I'm not nobody's fool) I'm not nobody's fool
If you're trying to turn me, into something else
I've seen it enough, and I'm over that
(I'm nobody's fool) I'm nobody's fool
If you wanna bring me down
Go ahead and try - go ahead and try

Don't know, you think you know me like yourself
But I fear, that you're only telling me
What I wanna hear, but do you give a damn
Understand, that I can't, not be what I am

I'm not the milk, and Cheerios in your spoon
It's not a simple, here we go not so soon
I might have fallen for that, when I was 14, and a little more green
But it's amazing, what a couple of years can mean

La, la, la, la - la, la… (ooh…)
La, la, la, la - la, la…
La, la, la, la - la, la… (yeah, you - yeah, yeah, yea…)

[Chorus]
If you're trying to turn me, into someone else
It's easy to see, I'm not down with that
(I'm not nobody's fool) I'm not nobody's fool
If you're trying to turn me, into something else
I've seen it enough, and I'm over that
(I'm nobody's fool) I'm nobody's fool
If you wanna bring me down
Go ahead and try

Go ahead and try
Try to look me in the eye
But you'll never see inside
Until you realise, realise, realise…

Thing are trying to settle down
Just trying to figure out
Exactly what I'm about
If it's with or without you
I don't need your doubt in me

[Chorus]
If you're trying to turn me, into someone else
It's easy to see, I'm not down with that
(I'm not nobody's fool) I'm not nobody's fool
If you're trying to turn me, into something else
I've seen it enough, and I'm over that
(I'm nobody's fool) I'm nobody's fool
If you wanna bring me down
Go ahead and try

La, la, la, la - la, la… (yeah, yeah)
La, la, la, la - la, la… (yeah, yeah)
La, la, la, la - la, la… (…ooo)
La, la, la, la - la, la… (…ooh)

La, la, la, la - la, la… (would you be laughing out loud)
La, la, la, la - la, la… (if I play it to my own crowd)
La, la, la, la - la, la…
Try.....

    I think it means that nobody wants to be something theyre not becuase that is who they are and they dont care if theyre laughed at becuase they know who they are and they are happy the way they are

    I'm surprised nobody's said anything about this song! This song is one of my favorites of her! :D
    It's about how people are trying to change you and then you don't realize it but you're letting them and then you step up and be yourself without anyone telling you what to do or how to be. I can so relate :)

    It's like telling to the people that no matter what they think about you , your just being with yourself so it doesn't either they will like you or not.. Be true to your self ;)

    a girl is being straight up and plain talking a guy who, it seems is trying to drag what isn,t in her out of her. here she is telling him tyo beat it to the curb cause what he sees is what he will most defionately get. avril doesn't trash talk . at least we have a woman in this world who openly state her free flowed mind.
