One by one
We came along
Wearing our boxers and baggy jeans
Under our clothes we were different

I say Wassupi
You answer back
We look the same
But we're so different

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service
Under our clothes we're not the the same
But outta our house
We look just the same
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service

If I walked down the street
Wearing different clothes
You'd blow me off just because

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service
Under our clothes we're not the the same
But outta our house
We look just the same
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service

I wanna be myself
I wanna be with you
I don't wanna be the same

You walk away
When I say
Hey! I wanna be myself today
I feel so abused
So unused
I just wanna say

I wanna be myself
I wanna be with you
I don't wanna be the same

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service
Under our clothes we're not the the same
But outta our house
We look just the same
No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service

I say Wassupi
You answer back
We look the same
But we're so different

I understand that you have an image
One you need to uphold
But Underneath your clothes
I know your different
Before you say goodbye
Just tell me why
I can't be your girl
When I say

I wanna be myself
I wanna be with you
I don't wanna be the same
