Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

I hope this song helps people understand that there's really no difference between us...
They want me to vote -- they take my tax money --
They urge me to smoke – they still call me honey...
They let me e-trade – they track me on the net –
They try to sell me everything & tell me I’m in debt...

I shop in all the local stores – my kids go to school –
I drive an American car - I obey the right rules...
My bank is nearby – the same one you use –
We’re all so much alike – but for our versatile views...

See - I’m Just Like You
Although they tell me I’m not...
See - I’m Just Like You
And now I’m overwrought...

See - I’m Just Like You
Or so they say...
I’m Just Like You
So why treat me this way?

Your rights aren’t mine -
It’s clear by all signs...
No politics protect me -
They just inspect & reject me...

I pledge my allegiance to a rainbow flag -
Now I’m not trying to preach or nag...
But I’m not recognized by the red, white & blue...
Because I was born a little different from you...
