Twinkle Twinkle (I'm Not A Star) Lyrics

by Dj Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince

I'm Not A
I'm Not A
I'm Not A
I'm Not A

[Chorus:]
I'm Not A
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Come on y'all i aint no
Yes you are
Up above the clouds so high
No not me I'm just a regular guy
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Come on y'all i aint no
Yes you are
Up above the clouds so high
No not me I'm just a regular guy

[Chorus]

Star light star so bright
First star that i see tonight
I wish that I may, wish that I might
Rip the rhyme just right
Now you all know how the old story goes
He went from rags to riches and changed as he goes
To me that scenario doesn't apply my friend
'Cause I'm the same guy I've always been
JJ FP one on one free
M-O-V-I-E TV and CD
Knew you left brand new on the radio
Step on the scene and the crowd screams Daddio
What? a star hats quite in anology
I don't think you and I should be described astrologicaly
I told Jeffrey buy me a car
He don't treat me any differently

[Chorus]

Lets take a trip down memory lane
You know back before everybody knew my name
Before all the jewelry the fame and the cheers
When i was just the kid with the big old ears
In west Philadelphi born and raised
That's the phrase you hear on Mondays
But lets get a little bit deeper than that
Back when Jeff was on the scratchback
And I was on the rap
I used to buy records at this audio store
I barely had a dime when I walked out the door
I tried to get a break but they could never seem to cut me
Now I've got the money and they wanna give me stuff for free
That's somethin that I'll never understand
Yo I can afford it give the break to the next man
You say I'm a star 'cause I'm large in the land
But excuse me what I do doesn't define who I am
Shaq, Denzel, Quincy Jones what's the category?
It's folks you look up to
The thousand dollar answer is up on the board
Um who is a star
(Buzzer) Sorry no score
People be flippin when they see me around
But yo don't trip just give me a pound
Step up and say hi it don't matter who you are
Come on what you all starin for?

[Chorus]

Out to see a movie chillin with my millie
Actin kind of silly
In downtown Phillie
You wanna see a new flick i wanna see a classic
So we flip a coin and we settle on Jurassic
Park the only thing that counts is we could do it up
Got some popcorn for the theater
Everything goin just fine
Then this girl from behind recognized me in the line
I turned around and i smiled and she laughed
She said how you doin can i please have your autograph?
I said ya and as she reached for her pen
Her boyfriend said he aint nobody f him
F me yo what did i do?
Watch your mouth man i don't even know you
I'm a peaceful man real easy
I said look you got a problem with me
He said ya I don't like the way you act
Cars and jewelry and wavin like you all that
I'm not sweatin you no matter who you are
I didn't ask you to homie

[Chorus 2x]

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
