Verse 1:

Aiyo

Don't worry bout bein like somebody else

Cuz that crap's bad for your health

It just means you lack spiritual wealth

You should love who you are

You gotta love yourself

You'll never go far

If you keep modelin after stars

Cuz yo all stars eventually burn out

So tell me how would you turn out

To be happy

You don't need to be rich

Even though it seems it'll be a hitch

You just gotta love your self

Put God first

Then you'll crawl out of the ditch

You are special

So be natural

Don't be artificial

And phony

Cut the baloney

Be a leader of your self

Yo don't be a croney.

Hook:

You got to be true to you

You got to love who you are

You'll never be happy

If you're too busy gazin at stars

Yo you'll never go far (2x)

Verse 2:

Aiyo

We're all unique

We'd be mad freaks

On the streets

If we were like each other

Like every brother

It's cool to be together

But no need to be clones

Drones

This is somethin I can't condone

You'll never get the bone

If you're just copy pastes

For goodness sakes

Why must y'all be a bunch of fakes

And put up a facade

Like a bunch of frauds

That type of thinkin is flawed

Yo it's just no good

You'll get no credit

If you act like what you ain't

Try to do things that you simply can't

You gotta love yourself

Cuz no one's a saint

Be careful of the image

Of which you paint

Cuz it can get taint

Hook:

You got to be true to you

You got to love who you are

You'll never be happy

If you're too busy gazin at stars

Yo you'll never go far (2x)

Verse 3:

Aiyo

Imagine if everyone was alike

Not similar but exactly alike in every way

Did everything exactly the same every day

Yo imagine how borin that would be

How borin it could be if that was the case

If every man had the same looks

And the exact same face

It'd be a sad place

If every brother was the exact same color

It's our differences that holds

Humanity together

It's what makes the world fun to live in

Yo I won't give in

To any hatred of any kind

I pay haters no mind

I ain't blind

Let our differences shine

Maybe in time

We'll appreciate our differences

No matter the circumstances

But for now here's what y'all must do

Let peace and harmony flow through you

Be yourself

Be true to you

Hook:

You got to be true to you

You got to love who you are

You'll never be happy

If you're too busy gazin at stars

Yo you'll never go far (2x)
