From the recording All You Can Love
I asked her out; we went on a date
She was very nice; she just wasn’t for me
She likes alcohol; I prefer iced tea
But no need to hate that we didn’t relate
I didn’t ask her to become like me
And she wasn’t upset that we disagreed
So, we both concluded, this is what we believe
(Yeah) It’s my life and I’m stickin’ to it
I’m not gonna worry; I’m just gonna do it
I’m not gonna change or rearrange
’Cause it’s my life and I’m stickin’ to it
Now there’s a friend of mine who loves the races
And he doesn’t understand why I don’t want to go
He thinks if he likes it, I shouldn’t say “no”
But he needs to learn the social graces
What is it, I want to know
That makes people think I should be like them?
How ’bout they live their life and I’ll live mine
And then everything would be just fine
Now there’s lots of stuff that I like to do
But I don’t think you need to like it, too
We ought to be able to just get along
It’s like there ain’t no right and there ain’t no wrong
That’s right, it’s my life and I’m stickin’ to it
