Original video
Hey hey hey...

Estelle:
Well I wear my clothes like this because I can
And I wear my hair like this because I can
And I walk around like this because I can
And I do my thing like this 'cause it's who I am

And if you are expecting me
To give you an apology
For being nothing that you used to
Used to

Go right on ahead and wait
Hold your breath and concentrate
Keep holding till your face turn blue

My road, it ain't your road
But trust I know (I know just where I'm going)
Where I'm going, and my flow it ain't your flow
But trust I know (I know just how I'm flowing)

And I’ma do my thing
(I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing)
Please feel free to hate and complain
Said I'ma do my thing
(I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing)
Say what you want 'cause this one ain't gonna change
Said I’ma do my thing

Janelle Monáe:
Ha ha ha...

I can't wear my clothes like you, because I'm not
I can't do my hair like you, because I'm not
I can't walk around like you, because I'm not
I can't do my thing like you, well that just ain't hot

And If you are expecting me
To give you an apology
For being nothing like you used to
Used to

Well go right on ahead and wait
Hold your breath and concentrate
Keep holding till your face turns blue

See, my road, it ain't your road
But trust I know (I know just where I'm going)
And my flow, it ain't your flow
But trust I know (I know just how I'm flowing)

I’ma do my thing
(I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing)
So please feel free to hate and complain
'Cause I'm a do my thing
(I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing)
And say what you like 'cause this one ain't gonna change
I’ma do my thing

Estelle:
You don't know where I am going
and so you think I'm lost
I ain't on your page, OK
so to you that means I'm off

Janelle:
When I dance, I dance to the beat
Of a drummer you don't hear and you can't see
So if I look off beat to you
Well the problem must be you not me

Estelle:
Irregular but never irrelevant
Janelle:
Unusual but never uncool
Estelle:
You're not cut from my clothes
So you don't get me
Well, I don't get you--
Janelle:
--either, a believer of the fact
That unique equals love
Estelle:
So if I'm going to fast for you
Open your mind and speed up

Janelle:
My road, it ain't your road
But trust i know (I know just where I'm going)
Estelle:
Where I'm going
And my flow, it ain't your flow
But trust me, I know (I know just how I'm flowing)

I’ma do my thing
(I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing)
Please feel free to hate and complain
I'ma do my thing
(I’ma do my, I’ma do my thing)
And say what you want/like cause this one ain't gonna change
I'ma do my thing

Ooh...
