Album: Stay Hungry (1984)
  • Black sheep of the family, nothing like the rest
    Separate from the others, failing all their tests
    Can't they see you're different, so hungry and so lean
    You're a walking wonder, you're a metal machine
    Look and you'll see you're a lot like me

    You're an S.M.F.
    You're an S.M.F.
    You're an S.M.F.
    You're an S.-M.-F.

    Caught up in their worries and tomorrow's dream
    Missing all the living, milk without the cream
    They think you're so foolish, living for today
    Caring just what you think, not what others say
    Join with us, oh, how they'll scream and fuss


    We're the ones that live it, we're all really free
    And if they think that we're sick then sick is what we'll be
    Scream it loud, Know what you are, be proud
