Sacred Reich – Who Do You Want To Be [Oingo Boingo]


Artist: Sacred Reich
Album: Heal
Year: 1996

Lyrics:
Who do you want to be today
Who do you want to be
Who do you want to be today
Do you wanna be just like someone on T.V.

Oh boredom is so horrible it’s like a dread disease
Nothing could be worse when there’s nothing on T.V.
I’d rather be a cowboy than to stare blank at the walls
I’ve been reborn so many times
I can’t remember them all
(And I Say)

Who do you want to be today
Who do you want to be
Who do you want to be today
Do you want to be just like someone on T.V.
Just like somebody on T.V.

I think I’ll be a teddy boy, I think I’ll be a hunk
I think I’ll be a tough guy and I think I’ll be a punk
Might just be a fashion star all dresses in frilly rags
Or perhaps I’ll cross the other side and walk around in drag!

Who do you want to be today
Who do you want to be
Who do you want to be today
Do you want to be just like someone on T.V.
Just like somebody on T.V.!

Do you like to be a rock in the middle of the sea
Do you want to suffer by yourself in a pool of blissful misery
Do you want to feel like a saint in artist’s clothes with rosary in you hand
Do you want to be crazy like Van Gogh
Like a stranger in a strange, strange land
Would you rather push the buttons and be feared by all humanity
Or perhaps you’d like to be a bum
Do you wanna be stupid
Just like me!

Who do you want to be today
Who do you want to be
Who do you want to be today
Do you want to be just like someone on T.V.
Just like somebody on T.V.!
Who do you want to be….
