Wait, someone stopped me,

Went home and I called my mommy

Oh no, I'm not that girl,
         C
I still wanna be the leader of the f-f-free world
       Bb                F
I'm a big dreamer, I'm a believer

       C
Gonna run this town from the inside out
  Bb                      F
Block by block from the bottom to the top
    C
I know just who I am
       Dm
And I know just who I'm not
