I'm supposed to love you
but I don't know why
'Cause you don't want to have nothing to with me, no
You hurt my feelings and you make me cry
And thatís the kind of thing that gets next to me

Yes, stand out
Let me see whatever you are

Now you say your mother taught you to tell right from wrong
But did she show you the dividing line between the weak and the strong
If you go around labelling people by the colour of their size
All I can tell you people is that you're in for a big surprise

Yes, stand out
I think you ought to stand out
So I can see whatever you are
Stand out stand out

Now your supposed to love me
And if you don't know why
Now I'm your ticket to heaven
And that ain't no lie
I see a man lying on his death bed all filled up with hate
You better put some love in his life
Somebody said the hour is getting late

Stand out
I think you ought to stand out
And let me see whatever you are
