Born
 
 Hey hey hey
 People want to show you the right way to walk.
 People want to tell you the right way to talk.
 You can keep on begging people say no.
 You put on a funny face,
 so the hurt doesn't show.

 I wake up and I wake up,
 and what do I find?
 Just another hang up
 hanging on my mind.
 But if someone would show me
 the right way to be,
 then I'd be just another man,
 another man free.

 I was born to be humble,
 I was born to be proud,
 born to stand alone, yeah,
 or stand in a crowd.
 I was born to be needed,
 I was born to be free,
 born to be loved, yeah,
 born to be me.

 When I wake up and I wake up,
 and what do I find?
 Just another hang up
 hanging, hanging on my mind.
 But if someone would show me
 the right way to be,
 then I'd be just another man,
 another man free, another man free.
 
 ( 5 x )
 
 I was born to be humble,
 I was born to be proud,
 born to stand alone, yeah,
 or stand in a crowd.
 I was born to be needed,
 I was born to be free,
 born to be loved, yeah,
 born to be me.
