I Just Wanna Be
Jay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be acknowledge
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna be free
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna live my life
I don't wanna waste my time
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be acknowledge
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
People tell me that should become a doctor
I laugh I just wanna be acknowledge
"Messon why won't you become a Lawyer?"
Grandma everybody is a Lawyer
Nowadays online gamers living lavish
Models make more money than the Lawyers
Mansion big cars on the driveway
Droptop 85 on the highway
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be acknowledge
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna be free
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor

I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be acknowledge
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I'm not into grammar
No I'm never into Math
I think Physics is cool
But I don't wanna do that
College
Teach me how to do my taxes?
College
Teach me how to get a mansion?
College
Teach me how to get rari?
You know that I'm here for the blessing
You know I will never use this nonsense
I feel like I'm slowly being finessed
And I got loan that I really need to pay back
Tell me
You really don't understand that?
I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be acknowledge
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna be free
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor

I just wanna be a factor
People tell me to give up
Man I'm a warrior
I won't ever give it up
Man I'll go harder
No matter what's on my way
I'm gonna push it away yeah
Won't let nothin get in my head
I'm gonna seek for the best life
Many people like myself feel like they're left out
But I won't ever get to the point where I check out
I will keep on working hard
Putting my best out
I'll keep rising
I'll keep rising
Cause I just wanna be loved
I just wanna be acknowledge
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna be free
I just wanna be me
I just wanna be on top of the world
I just wanna be a factor
I just wanna live my life
I don't wanna waste my time
I just wanna be on top of the world

Man i cannot TELL YOU the trip down nostalgia lane this just took me on...
I watched this vid and it made me realize how fast time flies....
It seems like just yesterday this was one of the hot new tracks and vids...
Everyone was dressing like the poeple in this vid...(old heads...tell the truth...did yall EVER think baggy clothes would go out of style?)
This would play at the club and get things LITTY....then we would go to the after party at pitt universit or JMU and things would get LITTY again as this song played.
YOUNG PEOPLE...listen....when youre young you think your generations style and swag will last forever....then 20 years zips by and your music is sudenly called "classic rap".
Lil uzi..lil yahcty, migos, cardi b fans...one day young dudes are gonna be looking at your music and era and callin it " old school stuff" and sayin its boring
Lol
Such is life
