Member of the tribe Lyrics by Adrian Belew 



Member of the tribe by Adrian Belew


Ever since I was a kid I never did fit in
while all the other fish were learning how to swim
I was dying
to be a member of the tribe

And when I went to school my head was in a cloud
the teacher said, "You will never be allowed,
so don't try
to be a member of the tribe"

Now what can a square man do
to fit in a big round world?
If I am a hand and life is a glove
I stick right out like a big sore thumb

Why don't you come over to see me sometime
I do impersonations from Saturday Night Live
I'm dying
to be a member of the tribe

Now what can a square man do
to fit in a big round world?
Life might be a parade for some,
but I stick out like a big bass drum

I eat Big Macs and I watch MTV
I've been a K Mart shopper since 1983
cause I'm trying
to be a member of the tribe
