about

"I want to be a shape-shifter...You know I look up to Harriet and Yoda and Dr. Martin Luther King, Benazir Bhutto, Jesus and the bearer of the ring, the big G of course and Mestre Bimba who reinvented the game, and then there was that guy with the big belly...What was his name?"

lyrics

I want to be a shape-shifter rest of my life
I want to be a shape-shifter put an end to this strife
Know people of this world see the pain in their eyes
I want to bring that teardrop bucket
You know I want to hold them while they cry

I want to be a pain reliever rest of my days
I want to be a pain reliever
Find a way out of these old and rusty chains
Know people of this world
I feel the weight of the load that they bear
Want to lift that burden from their backs and watch them
Raise their arms in the air

You know I look up to Harriet, Yoda, Dr. Martin Luther King
Benazir Bhutto, Jesus and the bearer of the ring
The big G of course and Mestre Bimba who reinvented the game
And then there was that guy with the big belly
What was his name?

Want to always remember for the rest of my life
Want to always remember that this wheel keeps on spinnin’ round
Feel it churnin’ deep inside now check it!
Everybody needs to make money
Everybody needs to make dough
If you don’t have a penny
Please don’t go
Everybody needs a good friend
In good times or when it gets so cold
Everybody needs somebody to love

I want to be a…
I want to be a….
I want to be a…..
I want to be
