I get up every day
It's a miracle, I'm told
Somehow I live to work
So I hit the road

Squeeze into my hybrid car
Drive as fast as I can
While I scan the rooftops
Yeah, I scan the rooftops

Don't shoot (Don't shoot)
I'm a man
Don't shoot
I'm a man

I live in every city
All around the world
Sometimes it's way too hot
Sometimes it's friggin' cold

One thing's always the same
No matter what they say
There's way too many problems
Way, way too many problems

Don't shoot (Don't shoot)
I'm a man
Don't shoot
I'm a man

You wish you were swingin' from the trees
You wish you were slicin' through the breeze
You wish you were king or queen
You wish you'd hit the lottery

But wishin' is for chumps
High-hopin' is for fools
They'll hunt you down and taze you, bro
For playin' with the rules

Don't shoot
I'm a man
Don't shoot
I'm a man

I've got a big dilemma
To punt or go for broke
It's got me goin' sleepless
Well, I'm about to choke
So let me ask you something
Answer if you can
Think before you answer
There is no correct answer

So don't shoot (Don't shoot)
I'm a man
Don't shoot
I'm a man

Don't taze me, bro!
Don't taze me, bro!
Don't taze me, bro!
Don't taze me, bro!
