To the Pope and his pals in the US Ruling Class: 'LET ME BE,' 1965 by the Turtles: 'Don't try to change me or rearrange me to satisfy the selfishness in you. I'm not a piece of clay to mold to your moves each day. I'm sorry, I'm not the fool you thought would play by your rules'



"Let Me Be," by The Turtles released on 1965 album
The Turtles: Let Me Be (Lyrics), You Tube

"Let me be," lyrics
.................. 
"Please don't mistake me or try to make me
The shadow of anybody else

I ain't the him or her you think I am
I'm just trying hard to be myself
Though society's goal is to be part of the whole
That may sound good to you, not to me
 
....................
Let me be, let me be
To think like I want to
Let me be, let me be
That's all I ask of you
I am what I am and that's all I ever can be
 
.................
Don't try to plan me or understand me
I can't stand to be understood
I could never give in to or ever live up to
Being like you think I should
 
I've got some inner need that I'm tryin' to heed  
I can't take hand-me-down destiny
.......................
Let me be, let me be
To think like I want to
Let me be, let me be
That's all I ask of you
I am what I am and that's all I ever can be
 
...............
Don't try to change me or rearrange me
To satisfy the selfishness in you

I'm not a piece of clay to mold to your moves each day  
And I'm not a pawn to be told how to move
I'm sorry I'm not the fool you thought would play by your rules
 
A 'To each is own' philosophy

Let me be, let me be
To think like I want to

................
Let me be, let me be
That's all I ask of you

I am what I am and that's all I ever can be 

...............
I said that's all I ever can be
I said that's all I ever can be
I said that's all I ever can be"
