Hey you, what's the matter?
Lately you've been looking down.
Is that someone in the mirror the
The reason you don't come around?
(That's crazy.)
This isn't the "you" I know.
(Feeling un-pretty.)
Puttin' on a show.
(You don't wanna be a wannabe.)
So who you really gonna be?

Only You can be you.
And only I can be me.
You always wanna be what you're not.
Can't you be happy with what you've got?
You're perfect the way you are
With your insecurities, doubts and scars.
Life's too short to worry.
Don't you know it's true.
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)

You think you ain't got swagger.
Gotta be cooler than you are.
I think whatever,
Let 'em know that you're a star.
(Be crazy.)
Be who you wanna be.
(No maybe's.)
You're a celebrity.
(You don't wanna be a wannabe)
Show them who you're gonna be.

Only You can be you.
And only I can be me.
You always wanna be what you're not.
Can't you be happy with what you've got?
You're perfect the way you are
With your insecurities, doubts and scars.
Life's too short to worry.
Don't you know it's true.
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And I can be me (I can be me)
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And I can be me (I can be me)

Rap:
If you love who you are, put
Your hands up.
You feelin' good 'bout yourself?
Then stand up.
You independent and you're strong
Throw your hands up.
You feelin' fabulous
Put your hands up.
You could be you, I could be me.
You a star if you ain't on tv.
You tall, you short, you different, you cute.
You light, you dark, you beautiful, you, you.

Only You can be you.
And only I can be me.
You always wanna be what you're not.
Can't you be happy with what you've got?
You're perfect the way you are
With your insecurities, doubts and scars.
Life's too short to worry.
Don't you know it's true.
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)
And You can be you (you can be you)
And only I can be me (I can be me)
Only You can be you (you can be you)
And I can be me (I can be me)
