They hail you as their morning star 

Because you are the way you are. 

If you return the sentiment, 

They’ll try to make you different; 

And once they have you, safe and sound, 

They want to change you all around. 

Your moods and ways they put a curse on; 

They’d make of you another person. 

They cannot let you go your gait; 

They influence and educate.

They’d alter all that they admired. 

They make me sick, they make me tired.
