Lyrics

[Hook]
Everybody wants to be Poppy, Poppy
Everybody wants to be

[Verse 1]
All the people all around wanna know
What to look like, what to think, where to go
But I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what to think anymore, no

[Chorus]
I'm not here to tell you what to say or be
Why is everybody just like me

[Verse 2]
I don't know who to belong to, no
I'm just a princess with a pistol, whoa

[Hook]
Everybody wants to be Poppy, Poppy
Everybody wants to be
Everybody wants to be Poppy, Poppy
Everybody wants to be someone else

[Chorus]
I'm not here to tell you what to say or be
Why does everybody look like me

[Bridge]
Everybody wants to be Poppy, Poppy
Everybody wants to be
Everybody wants to be Poppy, Poppy
Everybody wants to be me

[Chorus]
I'm not here to tell you what to say or be
Why is everybody just like me
'Cause I don't have all the answers, but what I say is true
All you need to do is just be you
