The Lyrics

Love songs shouldn't get all the gender-bending fun.
[JARED:]
So your best friend screwed you over
Acted nice when he's not nice
Well, I have some advice
'Cause it's happened to me... twice

Here's my secret strategy
It always works because
The world doesn't end
It just feels like it does

So raise your right finger
And solemnly swear,
"Whatever they say about me
I don't care!"

I won't twist in knots to join your game
I will say, "You make me mad."
And if you treat me bad
I'll say, "You're bad."

And if I eat alone from this moment on
That's just what I'll do
'Cause I'd rather be me
I'd rather be me
I'd rather be me than be with you

We're supposed to all be manly,
Be aggressive and not care
Is that really fair?
Boys have to fight, girls have to share
Here's the way that that turns out:
We never understand
How to find the right words
We just use our hands

So here's my right finger
To how guys should behave
'Cause sometimes what's meant to break you
Makes you brave

So I will not act all innocent
I won't fake apologize
Let's just think and then speak up
Not tell these lies

Let's call our damage even
Clean the slate till it's like new
It's a new life for me
For I'd rather be me
I'd rather be me than be with you

I'll say, "NO!"
[MALE STUDENTS:]
NO!
[JARED:]
I'll say, "Knock it off, with your notes
And your rules and your games."
And those sycophants who follow you
I'll remember all their names

And when they drag you down
Like they inevitably do
I will not laugh along with them
And approve their palace coup
'Cause that's not me

[MALE STUDENTS:]
Jared! Jared! Jared! Jared!

[JARED:]
I don't need their good opinions
I have plenty of opinions
Everybody has opinions but it doesn't make 'em true
What's true is being me
[JARED, MALE STUDENTS:]
And I'd rather be me
I'd rather be me than be with you

[JARED:]
So raise your voice
'Cause that's the better choice
Than to fight like boorish brutes

[MALE STUDENTS:]
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[JARED (MALE STUDENTS):]
I'd rather be me
(I'd rather be me)
I'd rather be me
(I'd rather be me)
I'd rather be me than be with you
(I'd rather be me)
I'd rather be me
(I'd rather be me)
I'd rather be me
(I'd rather be me)
I'd rather be me than be with you
