Lyrics
Keep your philosophy
Take it up or leave it
It doesn't apply to me
I'm not gonna change a bit
If it means heartache
then leave it out for your sake
I tried and I try tried
to take care of my insides
Nobody's perfect so leave me if you object

I want those who get to know me
to become admirers or my enemies

When you're a pirouetting, highkicking
thighslapping cruiser
When you're a hipgrinding spellbinding
clean cut seducer
You have to be careful so people take note
I take it serious, but I still like a joke

I want those who get to know me
to become admirers or my enemies

Take it up or leave it
I'm not gonna change a bit
If it means heartache
then leave it out for your sake
I tried and I try tried
but still you say that I lied
Nobody's perfect so leave me if you object

Keep your philosophy
it doesn't apply to me
If it means heartache
then leave it out for your sake, your sake
I tried and I try tried
But still you say that I lied
Nobody's perfect so leave me if you object
