Lyrics

You might have been a villain
with a capital ''V''.
You might have had a plane to catch
and left your family.

It doesn't matter what you was,
it's what you is.
And what you is
is what you are.

You might have been a midwife
trying to help somebody in.
You might have been a Cardinal
with an A to Zed of skin.

Open up your window...
...honey let me in

You might have been Columbia
releasing orange 45s.
(''Hot As Steeeeeeeel'')
You might have been the empress bee
in her furry little hive.
(''Buzz Buzz'')

All the other bees:
''It doesn't matter what you was,
it's what you is.
And what you is
is what you are.''

Well you've got to come from somewhere
but you don't have to go back there...
...anymore.

Hey!

You might have been the police
knock knock knocking at the door.
You might have been a nice young man
on a nice young floor.

It doesn't matter what you was,
it's what you is.
And what you is
is what you are.

One more, yeah.

It doesn't matter what you was,
or what you is.
And what you is
is what you are.

You might be looking innocent
mmmm...deep inside you're not.
You might be feeling guilty
just a little not a lot.

It doesn't matter what you was,
it's what you is.
And what you is
is what you are.

Yeah!

Hey...hey, hey.
Hey...hey, hey.
Hey...hey, hey.
Hey, hey.
