Look at me, look at me - hands in the air like it's good to be
and I'm a famous rapper, even when the paths are all crookedy
I can show you how to do-si-do, I can show you how to scratch a record
I can take apart the remote control, and I can almost put it back together
I can tie a knot in a cherry stem, I can tell you about Leif Erikson
I know all the words to "De Colores" and "I'm Proud to be an American"
Me and my friend saw a platypus. Me and my friend made a comic book
and guess how long it took. I can do anything that I want cuz, look:
I can keep rhythm with no metronome
And I can see your face on the telephone
Look at me, look at me, Just called to say that it's good to be
in such a small world, I'm all curled up with a book to read
I can make money open up a thrift store, I can make a living off a magazine
I can design an engine sixty four miles to a gallon of gasoline
I can make new antibiotics, I can make computers survive aquatic conditions
I know how to run a business, I can make you wanna buy a product
Movers shakers and producers, me and my friends understand the future
I see the strings that control the systems. I can do anything with no assistance
Cuz I can lead a nation with a microphone, And I can split the atom of a molecule
Look at me, look at me, driving and I won't stop, and it feels so good to be
and on top.
My reach is global. My tower secure.
My cause is noble. My power is pure.
I can hand out a million vaccinations, or let 'em all die in exasperation
Have 'em all healed of their lacerations, have 'em all killed by assassination
I can make anybody go to prison, just because I don't like 'em and
I can do anything with no permission
I have it all under my command, because I can guide a missile by satellite
I can hit a target through a telescope
I can end the planet in a holocaust . . .
I can ride my bike with no handlebars
"Handlebars" by the Flobots
They do. The chills I get when I hear the song are real.
Every time I hear it, it leaves me in chills.
