You Be You but Let Me Be Me

This song is by Louis Jordan and appears on the album World Transcriptions (1989).

You be you and do whatever you want to
You be you but let me be me
Run your life and live however you want to
Run your life and leave mine to me

You can pull no rabbits out of nobody's hat
Trying to change my habits will take a lot more magic than that
So let me be, and be yourself if you want me
You be you but let me be me
Or baby, there won't be no you and me

You can't rule no nation, or tell folks what to do
I ain't no congregation, nobody likes your preaching but you

So take it slow and calm yourself if you want me
You be you but let me be me
Or baby, there won't be no you and me
