(Verse 1: E-40)
They Was Wrong When They Said Ain't Nothin New Under The Sun,
Cuz Everything Under The Sun Has Not Been Done,
What They Shouldn't Miss?
Don't Miss Your Call,
The Biggest Chance You Can Take Is Not Taking The Chance At All,
Like Who You Wanna Like,
Love Who You Wanna Love,
Kiss Who You Wanna Kiss,
Hug Who You Wanna Hug,
Latin, White, Black,
Fat, Tall, Small,
Opposites Attract Whatever It's On Y'all,
I Came In The Game With A Hope And A Wish,
With No Bait On My Hook Tryna Catch A Fish,
Tryna Have Meals, 4 Courses,
Got Hella Ideas But No Resourses,
Don't Let Em Knock Your Motivation Keep Tryin',
Your Probably Just Ahead Of Your Time,
Like Me, They Told Me I'd Never Progress And Be-Come,
What I am Today Them Niggas Dead Wrong.

(Chorus: J Banks)
You Gotta Be Original, Just Be You, Just Be You,
Take A Chance And Show The World You, Just Be You,
You Gotta Be Original, Just Be You, Just Be You,
Take A Chance And Show The World You, Just Be You.

(Verse 2: Too $hort)
We Gonna Hop In The Ride And Let The Rims Roll,
Gotta Hundred Pair Of Nikes No (?),
And No I Never Had No Afro,
But I Still Keep Everything That You Wrote,
So Many People Wanna Look Alike,
And Act The Same, But what's The Price,
When You Got No Game, They Won't Let You Play,
Your Too Stingy, You Shouldn't Act That Way,
Cuz Your Gunna Have To Pay,
If You Don't Speak Your Mind,
You Been A Follower A Long Time,
Stop Lying And Just Be Yourself,
Ain't Nothin Wrong With That,
You Got Racks, You Must Be On Some Crack,
Cuz The Last Time I Checked You Was Struggling,
Had A Whole Lotta Bad Luck Drug Dealing,
Now Get Back On Track Like You Need To,
Stop Following The Crew And Be You, Nigga!

(Chorus: J Banks)
You Gotta Be Original, Just Be You, Just Be You,
Take A Chance And Show The World You, Just Be You,
You Gotta Be Original, Just Be You, Just Be You,
Take A Chance And Show The World You, Just Be You.

(Verse 3: E-40)
Do What They Don't,
When It Come To Follow Trends, You Won't,
You Got Your Own Mind And Your Own Ideas,
Refuse To Be Like Anybody Else, (For Realz),
So Original, (Like Who?), Like Me,
Creative And Unique,
People Love The Way I Speak,
They Hatin On The Son Of The Man Up Above,
Anything Different They Afraid Of,

(Verse 4: Too $hort)
We Comin' Through Hard Again,
We Got Chains And Pieces, New Car And Rims,
It's E-40, Short Dogg And Them,
Alota Hustlers, Gangstas, All The Pimps,
It Sounds Good When You Turn It Up Loud,
Do It Your Way And Rock Your Style,
Your Hair Your Clothes Even Your Smile,
Their Gunna Love You Cuz Your So Original,

(Chorus: J Banks)
You Gotta Be Original, Just Be You, Just Be You,
Take A Chance And Show The World You, Just Be You,
You Gotta Be Original, Just Be You, Just Be You,
Take A Chance And Show The World You, Just Be You,
(Be You, Be You Til Song Ends)

(E-40 Speaking)
Stop Being Somebody Else When You Can Be You Mane,
Be You,
You Mane,
Be You,
When You Can Be You Mane,
Stop Being Somebody Else When You Can Be You Mane,
Be You,
You Mane,
Be You,
When You Can Be You Mane,
Biatch!

    In too shorts section, it's " got a hundred pair of nikes no timbos" as in timberland shoes, and " but i still keep everything natural".
