I’m not one to follow all the rules
I’m not one to follow all the rules
I may color outside the lines
It’s not that I’m a rebel
I just don’t like to be confined

                             Sometimes I hear a different drum
                             Or maybe none at all
                             I may abuse the limits
                             But who should make that call?

         I have my own perspective
         Of what is right or wrong
         The rest may sing in harmony
         I’ll sing my own sweet song

                                                 Do you get just what I’m saying?
                                                 Do you know just what I mean?
                                                 I’d rather play a one-man sport
                                                 Than be hampered with a team

                   You say I’m just contrary
                   But contrariness is a must
                   Else everything would be so plain
                   What is love without some lust?

It’s not that I would cheat you
I could never be that cruel
The only rule I follow
Is that one called the Golden Rule

                                       And as for those commandments
                                       The ones etched out in stone
                                       I never did obey them all
                                       But you won’t see me atone

                                                                     So I may not hear that drummer
                                                                     I may not sing in tune
                                                                     You’ll more likely find me
                                                                     Out howling at the moon
