Raven Symone – Do Your Own Thing lyrics

You don't have to be like anybody else (No)
So what's the problem why can't you be like yourself (Oh)
Your individual, you might as well let it show
Oooh, Oooh, Oh
Because you're beautiful just the way that you are
Not everybody has to bling-bling superstar
Holla back if you're feeling what I'm feeling now
Oooh, Oooh, Oh

You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
Don't be just the same (Oooh)
Get the party jumping (Oooh)
The way you like (Oooh, ooh, oh)
You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
And dance your own way (Oooh)
Go a little crazy (Oooh)
'cause you got the right (Oooh, ooh, oh)

Go Home and change your clothes 25 times a day
Tell the haters not to come around, they bother me
Know that it's your world, go ahead and live it up
Oooh, oooh, oh
Some call you crazy well I guess they'll never understand
I change my hair, my clothes, my style because I know I can
Now get out on the dance floor, and dance

You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
Don't be just the same (Oooh)
Get the party jumping (Oooh)
The way you like (Oooh, oooh, oh)
You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
And dance your own way (Oooh)
You got something (Oooh)
That makes you rise (oooh, oooh, oh)
Up to the top of the world (Oooh)
You got to know what you like (Oooh)
All my fellas and my girls (Oooh)
Show who you are tonight (Oooh, oooh, oh)
You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
You got to rock your own style (Oooh)
You got to live for yourself (Oooh)
Every once in a while (Oooh, oooh, oh)

Do your own thing
And live your own way
The world is all yours
Go out and get some more
Do your own thing
And live your own way
The world is waiting
Go out and take what's yours

You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
Don't be just the same (Oooh)
Get the party jumping (Oooh)
The way you like (Oooh, oooh, oh)
You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
And dance your own way (Oooh)
You got something (Oooh)
That makes you rise (Oooh, ooh oh)
Up to the top of the world (Oooh)
You got to know what you like (Oooh)
All my fellas and my girls (Oooh)
Show who you are tonight (Oooh, oooh, oh)
You got to do your own thing (Oooh)
You got to rock your own style (Oooh)
You got to live for yourself (Oooh)
Every once in a while (Oooh, ooh, oh)
You got to do your own thing!

    This song is about not letting what other people think or say hurt you. It says that everyone is unique and different in your own way. Even if you like doing something, that the other group does not, that doesn't change how amazing and valuable you are. And it's also about, showing the world who you really are. It also states that no matter how many people are willingly bullying you, they are probably just jealous about things that you have, and that they don't.

    This song is about expressing yourself to the world, and letting your true colors fly! People don't have to be treated differently because they come from different races or from different countries or family's, even! If someone you know is hurting, please just show them this song. It probably will save many lives of tormented teens that think about committing suicide. Please. This song is one of the many, that touch hearts all around the world. It's fun, upbeat, poppy, and all around lighthearted. But, it also leaves a lesson behind. Don't listen to what the haters say, and keep believing in everything you know. And, don't stop being unique. Because no matter what you have been told, your worth more than gold.
