Why Does I Have to Be Me (Leon Rosselson) Why does it have to be me? Why can't they just let me be Why do I have to do things I don't want to do Why does it have to be me? Each morning I lie in my bed Slippery dreams in my head I live in a fine fairy castle of stone, All on my own, no-one to moan Then a voice shouts get up and it isn't a dream Hurry-up you're late for school and wash your face and brush your teeth and are your fingers clean And it goes on and on 'till I'm ready to scream Why does it have to be me? CHORUS Why do I have to eat greens Cabbage and spinach and beans I don't mind potatoes, I'll even have meat Though I'd much rather eat Ice-cream and sweets They say greens are good for me, maybe they're right But sometimes I think that they do it for spite And I've never seen them eating what they don't like So why does it have to be me CHORUS Now why can't I play my own games Somebody always complains Whenever I'm playing at monsters or bears Jumping off chairs, falling down stairs It's don't be so noisy, or go out and play Or look for a book if you're going to stay But the problem is they always get in my way So why does it have to be me?
