I don't wanna be a number
Just like being a prisoner
I just wanna stay free
Don't wanna be a number three

O, I don't wanna be
A 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Signing on the dot
Got my name on a form
Thought I had it made

They treat you just insane
You are just a number
And I ain't got a name
You are just a number
And I ain't got a name

Sitting in a prison cell
Numbers on my chest
Age is just a number
Mummy does know best
