Bedtime For Charlie – I Don't Wanna Be Like Me lyrics

I had a hot tuna sandwich I nailed you down on a wall
I used to have a lot of friends in high school
No I know no one at all
I never watched the Olympics I never cared about sports
Can't handle serious relationships
I'm always lazy and bored

It's a hard job but someone's gotta do it
Something's wrong but I don't know what
Chances are I'll be back in a bit
Maybe I'll be back in a bit

My wallet's always quite empty I own a few pairs of shorts
I'm not a huge fan of garage rock but
I'd love to live in New York
I'd never win an election I really don't give a fuck
I've never been the best at anything but
It doesn't mean that I suck

Once again I'm fuckin it up
Don't waste time I'm just having fun
Spare advice I'm already done
It's like stealing a dollar from a guy in a Chevrolet

This is not Hollywood
Broken bones but I'm feeling good
I appreciate this

I brake things and then I throw them away
It's like a fixing process I go through every day
I raise my glass to the days that will be
If I where someone else I think I wouldn't wanna be like me
