I bounce to the beat of my own drum
I'm a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

I bounce to the beat of my own drum
I'm a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

I had a violin, but I wrecked the rental
I play the tambourine and I'm never gentle
Whoops, see what I mean? That was accidental
But now that we're a team, we'll be instrumental

Instrumental, ha
See what I did there?
I made a pun, ha
I'm having fun, ha
I'm never done, ha
I'm just a one young woman
Ba-rum-pa-pum-pum

I bounce to the beat of my own drum
I'm a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

Extra, extra, read all about it
I'm extra, extra
The kid that the other kids can't get next to
I got my own seat on the bus
I've always been a me, not an us

"You're at a ten"
"I need you at a three", ha
Try that again
I gotta be me, yo
I am a ten
I gotta be free
And I got a friend
We're a team and we

Bounce to the beat of our own drum
We're a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

Lets get it
Everybody bounce when they see me come
I come through dressed like a showroom
Who flyer than me? Oh, no one
'Cause I brr brr brr-ah to my own drum

Turn it up loud, you can call me wild child
I ain't nothin' like them others, got my own style
Anyone know how I do it?
Well here's how

Da da da da da da
Let me break it down
Lemme break it down
'Cause I get busy when I write

You know I got the style
And copy-cats, they want to bite
Walk to the stage and all you see is flashing lights
Everybody scream like I'm Janet and Mike

Get crazy with it
Once you meet me, no you won't forget me
I'm in my own lane and I won't be quittin'
And make bounce, bounce, bounce to the beat we litty

We bounce to the beat of our own drum
We're a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

Ha, now that's a solo
I've always flown solo
I speed up when the world's in slo-mo
Make it up as I go when I don't know
And I know
I know it seems like I'm lonely
People assume that I'm lonely
Look at this room
And assume that you know me, homie
You don't know me, I'm in the zone

We bounce to the beat of our own drum
We're a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

We bounce to the beat of our own drum
We're a wow in a world full of ho-hum
I'm a wild young lady, but you know somethin'?
I'd rather be at home with my own drum

Bounce
Bounce (da da da da da da)
Bounce (get crazy with it)
Bounce (hey, let's get it)
