Uno due tre
Well, if you don't like it
Go ahead, find yourself a saint
Go ahead now, try to find a boy
Who's gonna be all the things I ain't
What you need is a plastic doll
With a fresh coat of paint
Who's gonna sit through the madness
And always act so quaint
Oh yeah yeah yeah

With your new friends
You're really making a scene
I've seen you bouncing around
From machine to machine
And you know
They're never real
They're never what they seem
And you can try to generate some warmth
And you see just what I mean
Oh yeah yeah yeah

And if I'm acting like a king
Well, that's 'cause I'm a human being
I want too many things
And that's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream
I said well, I'm a human being
And if it gets to be obscene, yeah
I'm a human being

And I just go around with my head hung down
Just like a human being and all those human beings
I can hold my head so high
Just like a human, I'm a riffraff human being

Won't you give me a little sip
Why don't you try me on a drag of that cigarette
Why don't you try to give me something that
I'll never ever forget
But now don't you blow it all
On a million dollar bet
Because you're liable to lose it
On the best lovin' you've had yet
Oh yeah yeah yeah

And if I'm acting like a king
Well that's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
That's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream
I said well, I'm a human being
And if it gets to be obscene, yeah
I'm a human being

And I just go around with my head hung down
Just like a human being and all those human beings
I can hold my head so high
Just like a human, I'm a riff raff human being

In fact I'm talking about the human race
Trying to cover up the big disgrace
Yeah yeah yeah

Yeah, yeah, oh yeah
Well I may think that this whole scene
Is too appalling for me
Or I may be the type who is just a mad about
Everything that I see
But I can't cover this with history
Or make it just what I want it to be
I'm blowing my change on the fan magazines
With all the Hollywood refugees
Said yeah yeah, oh yeah

And If I'm acting like a king
That's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
That's 'cause I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream
I said well, I'm a human being
And if it gets to be obscene, yeah
I'm a human being
