  • Whatever you give life you will get back
    Why be a wallflower
    When you can be a Venus fly trap?

    I never quite fit in
    To that Hollywood thing (ah)
    I didn't play that game
    For the money or the fame (oh)

    I did it my way, baby
    Nothing in this world could change me

    Don't underestimate me
    'Cause one day you're gonna see
    You're in a losing battle
    Babe, you'll never stop me being me

    I got the beauty, got the brains
    Got the power, hold the reigns
    I should be motherfucking crazy
    Nothing in this world could change me

    I sacrificed it all for a life to call mine
    All the love and security
    To be myself, oh I

    I know that money ain't important (ah)
    And it don't mean you're the best (oh)
    But I earned it all myself
    And I'm a millionairess

    I did it my way, baby
    Nothing in this world could change me

    Don't underestimate me
    'Cause one day you're gonna see
    You're in a losing battle
    Babe, you'll never stop me being me

    I got the beauty, got the brains
    Got the power, hold the reigns
    I should be motherfucking crazy
    Nothing in this world could change me

    They'll shame you, blame you
    Pretend to even hate you
    Take away your rights
    Pacify you with their lies
    Whatever you give life
    You are gonna get back
    Why be a wallflower
    When you can be a Venus fly trap?

    Don't underestimate me
    'Cause one day you're gonna see
    You're in a losing battle
    Babe, you'll never stop me being me
    'Cause whatever you give life
    You're gonna get back
    Why be a wallflower
    When you can be a Venus fly trap?

    Nothing in this world, oh
    Nothing in this world could change me, me
