Why Should I Look Like Everybody Else?

about

Reflections growing up as a British Born Chinese in the UK and a call to arms for you to stand up for yourself and be proud of who you are

lyrics

Hey little boy there standing by yourself, can you still cry through your tiny eyes?
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone
Hey fat boy with your big belly does it hurt when I push you down to the ground
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone

When I'll grow up I'll become a man
Will I leave behind all the things that make me who I am
If I lose my faith, and lose my tongue
And erase all the places that I feel apart from
And now

Why should I look like everybody else?
Why should I talk like everybody else?
Why should I dress like everybody else?
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Hey boy, don't you know that this is our road. This is not your road JUST GO BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone
Hey little boy do you know kung fu? Just like all the rest of you people do
Just leave me alone
Leave me alone

When I'll grow up I'll become a man
Will I leave behind all the things that make me who I am
If I lose my faith, and lose my tongue
And erase all the places that I feel apart from
And now

Why should I look like everybody else?
Why should I talk like everybody else?
Why should I dress like everybody else?
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Why should I look like everybody else?
Why should I talk like everybody else?
Why should I dress like everybody else?
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Why should I look like everybody else?
You should look like everybody else!
Why should I talk like everybody else?
You should talk like everybody else!
Why should I dress like everybody else?
You should dress like everybody else!
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win

Why should I sing like everybody else?
You should sing like everybody else!
Why should I live like everyone else?
You should live like everybody else!
Why should I love like everybody else?
You should love everybody else!
Now don't give in
Just stand up tall
Don't let them win
