lyrics

There’s a label on my table, there’s a label on my shoe.
And if you’re able, you might discover,
there’s a label stuck on you.
But that’s not the way, no, not the way.
You’ve got to go on from the inside.

Is that poochie, wearin’ Gucci?
Making him a better dog than you?
And does the label, create a fable,
Of a you, you’re sayin’ is you.
But that’s not the way, no, not the way.
You’ve got to go on from the inside.

So, I’m ripping off these labels.
I’m throwin’ them away.
I’m trying to discover, me along the way.
And what I’ll wear, is flowers in my hair.
And I’ll be going on the inside.

Let’s stop comparing what we’re wearin’
Caring what we are.
And if somebody’s different, then celebrate the gift they are.
Then we’ll wear, flowers in our hair.
And we’ll be going on the inside.
