I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Standing at the crossroads, world spinning round and round
Know which way I'm going, you can't beat me down
Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in

I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Tell me I'm a sinner, I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and He don't like you
You're telling all the people the original sin
He says he knows you better than you'll ever know him

I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

You know it ain't easy
You know it ain't fair
So don't try to please me
'Cause I really don't care


I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Go, go, go

Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in
Tell me I'm a sinner, I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and He don't like you

I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Go, go, go
